Honda Quest 2021
« on: October 31, 2021, 01:14:32 pm »
This is the 4th edition of Honda Quest.

14 adventurous souls will climb aboard their bikes tomorrow for a trip of a lifetime through some of the most remote and beautiful parts of the Northern and Western Cape. Only tomorrow night, once everyone is safely in camp will the contestants know who their partner will be.

It should be epic!

All the links and videos will show up here.

I am sure some of the WD contestants will have a few words and pictures to add as we go along.

For most of it, there will be daily live tracking.

If you have curiosities or questions I, or others on either the crew or contestants will attempt to answer them.

Go check out who the lucky sods are...

This was this years Boot camp from which the above were chosen



This was last years



I can't wait!

Dave Gous is one of my best friends, and I wish him well.

Dave is such a good friend, in fact, that I know he won't mind me wishing every competitor equally well.
