WOW, what an event!! Dave took part in the FeverX X-treme Endurocross, highlight of the Lions Show in Port Shepstone on the South Coast of KwaZulu Natal earlier this month. I wielded the camera, partly to capture some of the action, and partly to help calm my nerves, because this one was OVER THE TOP. Huge high five to Denzil Torlage, ace Masters class racer, for setting a killer course. The consensus seems unanimous that this format is set to take off in South Africa, and here’s hoping it does. Spectators will flock!

Some of the most talented enduro riders in the country were there, led by Jade Gutzeit, national championship leader and legend in the making. Not to mention the home-town favourite. I’m so proud of Dave, coming third in the Seniors class, no mean feat considering he was the eldest by far! For anyone who’s unfamiliar with the sport, here’s a short sequence of him tackling some of the obstacles. If it looks tough, trust me it was tougher!

I’m sure you can see why my warrior was exhausted by the end:

. . . but not too tired to take over the camera and show me how action photography should really be done 🙂 This is a shot he took of Jade in winning form!
