This site is awfully quiet on the Sabie Mini GS Challenge (held this coming weekend, 13 to 15 March). Are there anyone else besides myself and Eddie Immelman from the club that is going?

I'm awfully quiet about it because I was blissfully unaware of it! Is there some info/link you can share?

I phoned Jacqui and even though it sounded like she would budge under pressure, she really made it clear that entries were closed and they already have the meals orders in, etc. Sad

Perhaps a blessing in disguise, because it's just as short notice for me than it is for them! I've given my details through to be added to the mailing list for next year.

Enjoy and bring back a story & pictures!!

Oh, you can be very sure that I will!! I think it will be a very laidback thing - we are a group of 6 riders (of whom I know three). The other two who I do not know will be doing the green route, the rest of us (including a rider + pillion) will be doing red.
A bit concerned that the route might have a lot of mud on it though....
