Silva Qualifies #1
Kogelberg, South Africa - Day one kicked off late morning, after registration and greeting new riders. Riders only had practise runs on day one, getting to know the hill and getting accustomed to the conditions.
The racetrack is nestled in a valley, causing the default south-easterly wind to twist, turn and get turbulent around the curves of the mountains. Riders were getting used to head, tail and cross-winds, all in a single run. After a successful day and a few spills, riders retreated to the Hangklip Hotel for showers, nourishment and some character building.
