    Best of luck! Wish I could attend, but it's a bit far. :(

    Is there any way to get the results of the "adventure" category competitors? Everything I've seen so far gives only the main event results (Dakar qualifier).

    Adventure Category was a non-race category. No results for that. Untimed. Not on a course. Etc.

    Are you watching the Itchy Boots channel on youtube? Noraly rode in the 2021 Kalahari Adventure Raid, and is now getting her content on youtube...

    Yep, she was there.
    I think the Adventure Class' biggest drama/problem/obstacle was finding petrol during their days... the ORG had problems providing petrol to that group. They had to buy from farmers along the route- stopping at each farm and asking them if they had a liter or two of petrol they could sell. Sucked from what that group said.

    Amazing what she did. Basically taking a small 250 Honda CRF and thrashing it through the desert scrub.
    Noraly deserves a lot of respect for those rides (a couple over 700 kilometres) she's a tough rider.

    "That was some nice brap - Yeah" (said Noraly after trying a tricked out KTM.)

    On October 31, 2021 I edited the inaccurate quote after rewatching her youtube video "KTM EXC 450 vs. Honda CRF250L".

    Yep. She is a good rider.
    And yep, that was hilarious when she came back and said that. We told her to put it on a t-shirt and we'd buy a few!
