Wie van die "HONNE" kom Saterdag Off Road ry? Dit is 'n maklike, maar stowwerige race. Kom ondersteun die klub, hulle het die getalle nodig.

Thanks Tau, that's my plan  :thumleft:.  I'm starting on the last row so I'll be eating dust all day  ::)
At least the route will be clear to me though  ;D
Dux has setup my KDX for me very well and although I'm nervous as hell, I'm really looking forward to this event. I've got Dux in my pit tent as well so at least I know my bike will be able to finish the race  :D.

Snafu  ek het laas Sondag die eerste keer my plastiek bike gery en dit was goed ek dink my fiksheid is goed genoeg vir top 10, HOWEVER na my val laasjaar race ek nie weer as ek nie 100% is nie.Ek glo steeds my val is direk eweredig gekoppel aan fatique......

Ek gaan try voor wees, en dit is nie nou veilig met my bike fitness nie. Onthou Brett Lewis 2009 SA enduro 200cc kampioen en wenner van die Winterberg overall ry weer en Lional Sydoux so om te wen gaan iets spesiaal kos hulle 2 is bitter goed.

Ek weet ek moet nie ry om te wen nie, maar om dit te geniet, ongelukkig as die "redmist" inskop is al aai slim planne weg.

Ek sal seker Junie maand begin race in National of 2 en dan is daar "n 1000km resies in Botswana wat die Suider-Afrika kampioenskappe is wat ek op wil toespits as my groot race van die jaar. Ek is versot op Botswana se doringbos paaie. Die sand is great daar en die mense gasvry.

Ek sal hopenlik kom support laat middag ek moet vrydag nag werk.....

Buff onthou om more so 5-6liter water in te kry en nie Saterdag oggend te veel nie so1.5 vvor die race anders gaan jy kramp en dehidrate. Eintlik kan jy vandag begin vloeistof inneem.

Ook net water of Cytomax in jou Camebak nie energade of oros nie....

Dink aan jou eerste race as 'n marathon begin stadig en maak sterk klaar die manne wat so gaan jaar in die begin gaan aan die einde uitval(die weekenders wat jy wil kompeteer meer).

Kry cotton picking gloves by Kaap Agri (R6.00) of iets en dra dit onder jou gloves dit sal help met blase op jou hande.

As jy by bottlenecks of Q kom met baie bikes kalmeer en kyk daar is baie keer 'n beter lyn as die een wat almal vat. Die 30 sekondes wat jy wag en kyk vat minder energie en tyd as die 2 minute wat jy vat om jou bike op te tel en om te draai teen 'n bult of in 'n gat.

Jou eerste race moet gaan oor konstant en geregeleerd. ALMAL begin te vinnig. Jou lyf sal met die tyd gewoond raak aan die bashing and bouncing dis soos box, jy moet gewoond raak om raak geslaan te raak dat is dit nie meer so erg nie :imaposer:

Thanks for all the advice. Believe me when I say I'll take it easy, I have no intention of being a super hero (yet)  :D. I'm still very unfit and I have a knee that's giving me grief so my aim is to simply stay on the bike for the full 2 hours and finish the ride.
I've done the Cape Epic and the Transalp before so I know a little bit about vasbyt and prepping before an event, it's just the skills and fitness that are letting me down at the moment  :D But it'll come with time I'm sure  :thumleft:

You are all much braver than me. I am just going to spectate and take some pictures. Also to help out Dux in the pits.

If you give me your Race Number I can look out for you. No, I will not charge for the pics. Ask the people from the CABC.

I just do it as and obsess... erhm, I mean hobby.

Thanks Domstes, as jy kan foto's neem, sal dit nice wees. Ek dink nie die gewone fotograwe is meer daar nie.
My nommer is 93, my seun 67, bikes. Kyk maar of jou kamera vinnig genoeg is om ons af te neem!  ;)
