Hardy, vir die qualifiers, is daar opsies om 'n bike te huur vir ouens soos ek wat tans bikeloos is?

Jy kan een van myne leen ou maat - praat met jou na die Junie Kaokoland toer.

Hi All

Western Cape Pre-Qualifiers to be held at Kaleo Guest Farm on July31st.
It will be a very low key affair, where a panel will watch you ride a short trail with your own bike, after which we will get your info and if you impressed the panel, we will invite you to boot camp later in August. You will be notified of our interest via email. .
It will probably turn into a bring and braai afterwards.
Take note that Kaleo is in the Koue Bokkeveld and that it probably will be very cold.

Working on the other locations and will confirm in due course.

Cheers

The dates for Quest 2021 have been finalised. Here is a breakdown of the application and selection process.

19 July

Entries open for Quest 2021. Visit the Quest website at https://quest-trueadventure.com to complete the application form.

31 July - 7 August

Pre-qualifying events will be held across the country. These events are opportunities for you to introduce yourself to the selection panel and to showcase your riding skills with your own bike. These events are not compulsory for entering, but might improve your chances of being selected as semi-finalist. Keep an eye on Honda Adventure Motorcycles Facebook page for more details about these events. Venues for the FS, GP and EC pre-qualifiers will be announced soon, with the WC event being held on 31 July at Kaleo Guest Farm.

24 August - 26 August

From the entries received, a number of semi-finalists are chosen to attend a 3-day Boot Camp at Kaleo Guest Farm in the Western Cape. You will be subjected to a range of tests - from riding to general knowledge and everything related to adventure motorcycling. The finalists, who will be participating in the main Quest event, will be chosen from this group.

22 September - 1 October

14 people compete in a 10-day event and stand the chance to win the Honda Africa Twin on which they compete. The start and end point is at Kaleo Guest Farm in the Western Cape, with the rest of the route being revealed to contestants on a daily basis.
