    Stockman,

    I also mainly do MTB, but the Argus really is something else (my opinion).
    There is a vibe around it that's like no other event I've done. I'm doing my third now.
    My cycling kit is getting old, so if there is 4x4community kit available, I'll be interested

    Me too. Can't guarantee it will be my last, though.

    In '91 I participated in my first Argus and was convinced that it would also be my last ..... Famous last words .........

    Spoke to the guy sitting next to me on the 'plane this morning. Seems as if the "system" would not accept his payment, and also that the entry limit was reached within a few hours.

    So who is riding ?

    Nr 8 for me in 2015. I only do mtb events but the argus is the exception. It's just so different to your other boring road events.

    Anyone coming to Cape Town for the Argus from Sandton or surrounds prepared to give my winch bar a lift it will be greatly appreciated, maybe I can take you through the Atlantis dunes on Saturday as payment. The winch bar is approximately 1metre long.

    There's a lot of chatter that the route may be changed because of the massive fire that has burnt out a big section of the South Peninsula from False Bay, across Ou Kaapse Weg and Silvermine, all the way to Chapman's Peak. Nothing solid yet. Chapman's in particular may be dangerous because of rockfalls, and there is going to be a lot of ash blowing about if the wind predictions hold.
