Botswana Desert Run

Hi, anyone here have experience doing the Botswana Desert Run.? I wanna do it next year, Ive never done a race like it. I want to know what to expect and what kind of prep is required. Looks like fun and hell rolled into one:ride:

Hi

Check out http://www.familyadventures.co.za/events.htm

RSAThumb where r u? I'm in Pta, looking for mild rides on weekends, but no-one around here is riding (I'm near Irene).

Im Pretoria, up from Cape Town not so long ago, Im bikeless at the mo. Waiting for a new 07 wr450f. That looks like fun. I wish I could go. Where can one ride in this area? Do you know of any places?

imj75 you need to check out the social forum at www.e-dirt.co.za, there are plenty riders from the Pretoria area that organise weekend rides.

Hey RSAThump.

Where I am there isn't a lot of challenging stuff very close, but take a 20km ride and it gets better: there is the brick mine/factory next to the R21 on the way to JanSmuts, and a nice patch behind Irene farm villages etc.

If you want to get together for a ride just give me a shout.

Cheers.
