The International Bank Windhoek Enduro race this past Saturday created a huge amount of interest, while riders were thoroughly tested on a challenging track. The track, which included all kinds of terrain, was challenging enough. With the wind and the dust, the track became just too much for some of the riders and their iron horses.
The section that created the most excitement for the spectators took the riders through parts of the dilapidated mining processing plant of the Uis mine. With this part of the track, the technical abilities of the riders were tested to the limit, while the sandy stretches on the mine heaps gave the riders an opportunity to satisfy their need for speed. Other parts had so many rocks that the riders who strayed from the path were in immediate difficulty.
Riders from South Africa, Zambia, Kenya and Zimbabwe came to Uis to test their mettle against their Namibian counterparts. Some of the riders from other countries already booked their places for next year.
