Thanks pikkie, I for one would like to make the time for this one.
I too, have the butterflies in the stomach when things get animated in the sand, but with practice that "monster" has already been tamed to a minimal degree and it's definitely our biggest challenge as GS riders. The little bit of exposure that I have had has proven to me that this is beatable and is in the end fun to conquer.

The biggest lesson for me so far has been that you have to commit, and I find going at a comfortable pace to just keep the bike upright is what helps me. Going fast in sand is my nemesis. Perhaps they'll teach me on this course.

Can't wait for the report from Gustav. He apparently had no spills?
