The other great news is that I got the all clear from the physio last week and I'm really excited to be able to start racing again. The last 3 months have been frustrating but I've worked hard with the physio to speed up the recovery and keep fitness levels up. This month sees the 1st wave of riders visiting us for some trail riding and I'm happy to be doing more talks and appearances with sponsors and organisations.
Wow! What a journey its been so far. After selling my home and training for 3 years to get to the Dakar Rally in 2015, I crashed out in the dunes of the Atacama Desert. In 2016 I returned, but luck would elude me again with another DNF - this time from a mechanical problem and fatigue. 2018 saw me in Africa, but again mechanical issues thwarted my attempt. Its going to take a little financial help to see me go once again in 2019. I hope to raise the money needed by continuing with our guided trail rides in the South West, auctioning off items, and finding more sponsors. Thank you for everyones support so far. Corky

So after a lot of searching, some help from a good friend, and a bit of luck I managed to pick up a 2015 KTM 450 RFR. The bike completed this years Dakar and has been thoroughly checked over and is ready to race. I've only done a few miles on the bike whilst in the Netherlands but it was enough to be very impressed. It's an amazing bit of kit.
