Amageza 2013 got off to, should we say, an interesting start.
A strong south-easter blew in overnight, creating havoc in the campsite. After two poles snapped in the big tent they decided to evacuate, with some marshalls spending the night on the back of a pickup and the rest on the back of a 16 bike trailer.









Early this morning, the decision was taken to move the bivouac.

Scrutineering is now under way, in high spirits!

The rider is question rode 1000 miles off-road in 24 hours in a "Dusty-Butt" version of the Iron-Butt, back in 2004. Not many people that have done that, I guess.

For the early birds: The first spectator point is South about 3.7km south of the highway on the R43 at Botrivier - you will need to be there early, like at 05h45am

Coordinates are:
34°15'46.51"S *19°10'54.48"E

The bikes will be coming from the south and turning east at this junction. For safety reasons, Please do not drive/ride with the bikes on the liaison



I will post some other viewpoints in a couple of hours

Each rider has a trunk to live out of every day. His life's possessions and spares are stored in this. This trunk is moved by the organization to the next bivouac.

Nice looking bikes...hope they stay that way but somehow I doubt it!

Neil, do we have anybody there to tell us how long is the 1st day roadbook? It does not look long enough, but it would be good to know


Rubber side down everybody, I hope it goes as smooth as a baby's butt

First stage is 582km long, and is pretty much a special in its own right. I think there is less than 5% on paved surfaces. The special was shortened to only 52km but still takes 4.5 hours according to the pre-runners.

I think many riders will be coming in after dark tomorrow.
