I've entered. Only seeing the registration only on Saturday bit now. That's a bit of a pain coming from Somerset West...

Looking forward to it none the less.

Or just volunteer and then it doesn't matter.......

Gonna have to go check those trails on the Lefty now that I don't have an enduro bike anymore.. I was kind of hoping for a Hoogekraal stage rather than conties :D

The revised bit will be a bit scary with only 100mm travel

 

That's if I don't do the DC anyways....

I need a fork for my hardtail!! Want to join in this fun. Classifieds have been barren the last few weeks in that regard. Anyway, soon hopefully.

Edit: can i have my own class then? Or maybe put me with the 5 year olds? I might be able to hang on to them. I mean actual 5 year olds though...not people as tall as 5 year olds haha

Hasn't been announced yet. Black Rhino is definitely in, then maybe go check out last years route.

what are the rules regarding dress code?

 

Do you have to go full enduro kit (full face helmet, pads and baggies) or can you do this this in roadie lycra and normal helmet :ph34r:

FF helmets are not mandatory but a decent trail helmet is always a better bet than a roadie inspired XC lid. I would not consider doing a race like this in lycra simply because if you do fall, its not going to offer much protection. Think about pulling a pair of thicker board or nylon hiking shorts over the lycra. 

 

I always wear kneepads, full finger gloves, baggies and long sleeves unless its very warm. Because its racing, you do tend to push harder and as you tire on a run mistakes happen. I wore thinner than normal knee pads on a race once and suffered painfully when I crashed...

only if the bike fits the dress-code... :whistling:

I risked it last year with no knee-pads, only because I couldn't afford any at the time. Thankfully I managed to keep the rubber on the ground, but it was scary. Those rocks at Conties are pretty sharp.

Training Camps - is that the single track climb from the bottom gate up? Probably going from the top of Supertubes off to the right? I remember doing that a few years ago there and can't think of anything else it might be.

 

Stage 5 will be a serious test of fitness - probably 7 mins+ for many people - but it's an awesome trail

Jewbacca, Nov 18 2020 08:33

I shall be timing you buffoons... see you there

Jbr, Nov 18 2020 08:48

Funny that the only stage I don't know anything about is the only one that doesn't have a preview from wild air. Guess it's going to be a surprise to many ;)

I'm seriously starting to have FOMO, but that revised line has two corners, well more like one that are a total mental block to me, maybe on a race day I would've overcome it, but guess I'll find out next year :D

I went and test rode Black Rhino yesterday afternoon. Im very glad I did. It has some stuff on it I would have balked at riding without seeing it first. Hugely fun trail but it will be very tiring coming as it does after a lot of climbing...

it's a beaut bit of trail that, but has become pretty blown out in the last couple of weeks. I wonder if they are going to restore it ti it's original state or leave it as is?

 i normally ride Tokai which is always loose and interesting so I didn't really notice much trail damage. There is maybe one tricky berm that's very loose  if you ride too low in it, but for the rest it was pretty good. There is one rock garden/rocky roll down that I suspect might become tricky if the rocks are knocked out of place.
