2012 Amageza Rally - route recce
« on: January 10, 2012, 01:58:37 pm »
Explore the meaning of 'crazy' (amageza)...

The Amageza Recce team spent some of December 2011 in and around Sutherland, scouting out interesting potential routes for the 2012 Amageza Rally. We have two full stages mapped out with some dramatic & challenging virgin trails for both 'special' legs, and breathtaking routes for the 'liaisons'.
Here are some of the pics from the Route Recce....

To Sutherland... Kobus joins us there, on 'Casper' - his white KTM 690 Oryx

Julle bliksems.  Hoe gaan ons dit nou uithou tot dan toe?
My hart kom affie plaas, Waar die Wind en die Son en die Stilte my speelmaats was.

Everybody falls off. Some get back on. Some don't. Some can't.

Julle bliksems.  Hoe gaan ons dit nou uithou tot dan toe?

Gebruik al die tyd om te oefen! Ek het 2 trips gedoen sover om te sien of ek so lank in die saal kan sit. 1 van 850kms (600kms gronpad) op een dag. En 1 van 300kms grond op eerste dag, met 350kms grond en 160kms teer op 2de dag. Niks technical nie.

Ek was moer toe!

Gryp daai bike en gaan ry. Heeldag as jy kan, en vir 2 dae in n ry. Dis skokkend hoe moeilik daai 2de dag is!

En O ja, bring so paar van daai tente van jou saam asb. Ek wil graag een koop.  :thumleft:
