Jis ouens, I had a jol out there on Saturday, I'm totally hooked on this sport. The first thing that became blatantly clear is that my skills basket needs to be well stocked if I plan on going any faster. The top riders run at a pace that is impossible to believe until you actually see them coming past you. My mind fails to comprehend how they actually manage to stay on their bikes  :D

A big thanks to Domste and Dux for their help in pits on the day and the WD's who came through to support us. There's a great bunch of okes on this forum and I'm proud to be associated with this group.
 
I managed 2 laps in the 2 hours and got pulled off at 1:58mins which was a bit disappointing as I was keen to do another lap but maybe it was for the better because yesterday I woke up feeling like a bus had hit me  :o Gym has moved to priority 2, second to improving skills.

Buff I have many a time tried to explain to rugby players that after a 3 hr race it feels like a train hits you.

Buff, I was hoping to get you guys in flight on the course, but I when out there a bit late in the race. Next time I will try and get better pictures.

Well Done Mr BUFF!!! :biggrin:

This was my first ever official off-road race and the 5th time ever on my Duxxie 200...
I was number 2, riiiiiiiiight at the very back :) Very few will remember me, because I mostly had my head buried in some loose powdery sand, occasionally stuck sideways in the bushes halfway up a young bluegum tree or gracefully sliding down one of the stoney cornfield off-cambers still pinning my accelerator in the hope of righting my wrong...
Yes I ate dust, yes I fell myself purple & blue, yes I was slow (although I thought I was freakin' flying), yes it was one of the most challenging things I've done in the past while...
BUT HEY!!! WOW!!!
IT WAS AN EXPERIENCE WORTH EVERY MINUTE!! ;D
All my wipe-outs were due to my lack of skill on the bike... they were all my own doing :)
And even though I may have bent my bars and proven that THOR elbow guards work very very well while sliding down a rocky hillside... I managed to finish my epic battle with myself and bike :)
And all you guys who come flying past me.. You Okes don't realise how much energy it takes out of you,
when you plummet to earth in a dust cloud... and get up!! and kick that
little flooded 200 back to life!! :) YISLAAAAIK it is tiring!!!

FOR ME... A FINISH AND A SMILE ON MY FACE IS ALL I WANTED :) and that I got :) and I'm still smiling :)
Thanks to the organisers for making it happen... AWESOME INDEED!! :) :ricky:

T-Dawg, well done man!! I must add, you looked completely stuffed afterwards, but the smile on your face told a different story :)

GJ 3de plek agter Bret Lewis and Lionel. Ek het hulle al albei sien ry. Lionel was al 4de in die Romaniacs as verwysing vir die mense wat hom nie ken nie.

Bliksem GJ jy kan bietjie bike ry!!!  :thumleft: :thumleft:

GJ... 3rd place... are you serious ??? Bliksem, we are in esteemed company on this forum, I'm humbled by the speed and skill with which you guys can ride an enduro bike  :thumleft:

And some stage on my 2nd lap,  someone (I think Lionel) passed me for his 3rd and it was as we were going over one of those irrigation humps in the "koring lande". I blipped the throttle to jump it and I heard this roar next to me and as I turn around I looked straight into the bottom of a 450's motor as it came flying over my head   :o. I nearly moered off the bike I got such a fright. Btw, that 450 needs oil, it was running below the bubble  ;)

Hi Buff, dit kon dalk ek gewees het wat jou so laat skrik het, want ek het daar verby ouens gespring. (As dit by die laaste koringland was voor die einde...).  Lionell ry met 'n KTM 300, nie 450 nie. Sorrie as dit ekke was, sal NOOIT weer nie!!! :mwink:
