Motocross in Namibia (Riding at the coast)

Taking a trip down to the coast is always fun, especially if you take a couple of bikes along on the trip.

The town we visited last weekend, Swakop, has their own Motocross track, and we were more than excited to give this new track a go. Saturday morning was a rush of excitement and anticipation as we hurredly loaded the bikes and the gear and set off to the track early in the morning. The coast was a bit more chilly than we are used to, but this was a welcome change and only added to the overall hype in the atmosphere.

Once we arrived at the track, it was not at all what we expected. We expected loads of bikers to be present and the track buzzing with activity, however there was not a single soul in sight. We thought that maybe it was only due to us being so early and that the people would arrive in due time. We started offloading and “suiting up” and in no time we were on the track.

The track exceeded all our expectations, it was beyond awesome. It was something completely different from the track we are used to back home. It was also quite a bit longer than the Gallina Motocross track, with more jumps and loads of fun to be had.

We spent a good couple of hours riding and playing, all by ourselves since nobody else showed up. We found this quite strange but we did not complain, as this made it kind of like a private practice session.

At last we packed up and headed back, thoroughly impressed with the Swakop Motocross track.
