WFO Mooirivier

So, that time of the year again - first WFO and a record number of entries, I heard 300 was the number - WOW!  And the venue was packed, cars and bikes everywhere.  Sierra Ranch is a great place and lots of space - even with this number of entries it did not feel crowded.





I arrived there quite late, had some work in the morning and decided to do a quiet loop without getting in the way.  What a great ride it was, the course was quite "tame" in WFO terms, but still dictaded some "wide awakeness" and respect.

Bit of a downhill (this is about 1/3 of the way down and the pic does not do justice to the angle)  :shock:


Some mud  :x


Some scenery  8)


Some rocks  :?


Some bush  :roll:


Some fighting (2 smoke  :?: )  :wink:


And my able support rider.  Thanks broerie!   :)


The mood afterwards was cheerful and everyone I spoke to really enjoyed the ride.  Well done to the WFO club once again.  
I have lost touch with the organisers since Gerry's departure, hope I can get closer to them again in future and assist in some small way.

:(  :(  :(

Sometimes you have to make choices and this weekend was one of them.
I am at home waiting for the birth of my child instead of riding in Natal.

I see no numbers on the 525, didnt you enter?
Did you see Ufudo? No 123 on the Husaberg?

No sharky, did not enter.  But enjoyed the ride. And made sure that I stayed out of everyone's way and stopped for a picture here and there.  Did not see many others doing that....
Saw some Husabergs, but cannot remember 123.  Will look out at future WFO's.

Hope all goes well with the new addition to the family, and that we see you next time.

Man Stefan , you have no idea how much I miss all that camaraderie out there at those events .

I actually emailed to Sharky that the Sierra Ranch event would be of an easier type WFO , because of the terrain limitations and advised that it would be the best as a starter event .

Look on www.enduronatalWFO.co.za web site .

The lady to speak to is Sarah Marias . A really lovely lady , who takes the riders problems very seriously . Very helpfull , bubbly people person . I have a great deal of time for her .

Her husband , Mervin is possibly the chairman now , a very competent rider , & a very good business man . He will run the club extremely efficiently .

My friends , Sean Christie and his girlfriend , Robyn will also always be around the control area , Sean is a scrutineer , and makes himself usefull every where . He is an old school gentleman , if there is some thing to do , he will do it , and worry about the payment later . A good man .

Another good man in the organisation is Chris Coulthard , also extremely good rider , and first class man .
I sound like an advert for Maritzburg College , here , but Sean , Chris and Jimmie Nel are also ex college boys , as am I , so we'll all take a bow .

So next event , or even before then , contact Sarah , Sean or Chris and offer your help if you are so inclined , and go for it .

Best of luck , I had a great time with WFO , and when I left SA , they honoured me with life membership .
