The Walvis Bay endurance is the African Championships and this takes place every year at the end of August, this year it was their 21st year of existence. Riders from all over the world participated. Danie Saayman, a trainee at Newtons, represented the international barbarian team in this championship, where they competed against the South African and Namibian team. It is a 120km desert ride, and is considered one of the most challenging rides in the world. The ride starts at 4 o’clock in the morning and successful riders finish late afternoon. It was the 4th time that Danie completed this ride successfully, but the Namibian team unfortunately prevailed. It’s always an incredible privilege to ride Walvis Bay, and it’s one of the rides you can truly say, “TO FINISH IS TO WIN.”
