Sponsor Announced For Amageza Rally

The Amageza Rally (‘amageza’ – Xhosa for ‘crazy’) is Southern Africa’s motorcycle, multi-staged rally event – similar in style to the Dakar and Baja 1000. Being the second year of this dual-sport motorcycle challenge, 2012 will see participants navigate numerous ‘liaison’ and ‘special’ legs using their riding skills and a rally roadbook.
Riding road legal dual-sport motorbikes equal or exceeding 450cc, this KTM Cape Town sponsored rally is for  physically fit, advanced riders. The route navigates dramatically varied terrain from high-speed gravel to deep sand to a jeep track and to rocky, washed-out farm roads.
The Amageza Rally will expand yearly: 2013 is being planned as a five day rally event; 2014 as a 10-day event covering most of South Africa’s neighbouring states; and in 2015 the Amageza Rally Run hopes to have grown to be a 14-day African Motorbike Rally, crossing most of Southern Africa.
100 participants, who successfully completed one of the four 2012 Amageza Qualifiers (or applied via email with their off-road ride CV), will take part in this extreme dual-sport motorcycle challenge. If you missed a 2012 Amageza Qualifier, you may still be be able to snatch one of the remaining entries. Apply at and don’t forget to send an overview of your riding experience.
