Today we were lucky to have attended an Enduro race-day run by a local motorcross club based in Dakar. Iba our mechanic hooked us up with Alain and Co. and at 7AM, a shockingly unnatural hour for a Sunday morning, we set off with their crew to a small track located close to the Bandia nature reserve 80 kilometers from Dakar. The day was a complete KTM-Fest with 90% of the bikes being raced sporting the trademark orange and black, suffice to say we fitted in a charm.

Over the course of the day there were two racers who really stood out from the rest. Both were the winners in both their categories.

As the day was being wrapped up and the prizes were being handed out Jez and I both looked at each other and agreed that we could hear the track calling to us. I hadn’t brought my safety gear but the temptation was too great and the calling too strong. We launched ourselves into the track and came away smiling both of us wishing we had lighter bikes.
