RB's Photo RB 05 Oct 2020

Hi guys - I’m doing my first RtC next month so I thought I’d get into the swing of things by becoming a dotwatcher this week for the main RASA event.

But for the life of me I can’t find how - the dotwatcher.cc website doesn’t seem to mention FC at all, and all bikehub forums seem to have gone very quiet on all things FC.

Is there a website or an app? The FC website itself also doesn’t have any links or information on this...

OK so reading this thread properly now, including Chris’s summary, I get the impression that the commentary has moved away from bikehub to a large extent, to FB and WhatsApp (with the latter probably too busy for me personally).

I was thinking that dotwatching included literally watching dots on a map - is that right? If so, my main question remains: what platform does that reside on?

You are correct it does involve literally watching a dot. I'm sure FC will publish a link before tomorrow when the first batch kicks off. It's normally on the MaProgress platform if I'm not mistaken.

Thanks guys, been looking for the Tracker. Got 2 mates doing the Race To Paarl this year, Blanket wearer Erik Egeland and JG Wardle, a legend in his own mind from Cathcart, Thomas River MTB trail boss.

I will be in Ladismith tomorrow. Anyone know where or how I can go and watch for a few hours? Staying at a place a bit North.

Looks like Alex will still finish today(And break the 10 day mark and previous record??)!
I hope it's after 17:00 though..then I can sit on my stoep, beer in hand, and cheer him on over the finish line!!
