DRI race update: Camping available!

There will be camping spots available on location at the DRI, thanks to South Stables. Camping is in tents.

For any enquiries get in touch with Dusty: dusty@d-tours.co.za


1 night: R100 per person
2 night: for R150 per person
3 night: for R190 per person

P.S. …there’s a reason you may need a third night in. Dusty won’t tell you, though, because he’s a cryptic fool.

More details about that will come soon. For now, #KeepItTidy.

Make responsible choices.
See ya there.


Shuttle Day at 139, Nov. 16

Let’s have another fun day out on them trails on Saturday, November 16, and get our lines waxed n’ ready for the DRI.

Shuttles run from 9am till 3pm.

Check out the Facebook event link here:

Dustin has been a little busy on the hill, so a few new lines will be open for the shuttle day. Don’t ask which ones will be used for the event, just ride.

You are doing this at your own risk, remember that. Be smart.

And don’t forget to enter the DRI!

Continuing again with the new (old) race venue at 139 in Pretoria and all the same DRI vibes, be prepared for some new lines and good times. Get more race info here and ENTER NOW!

What you get for pre-registering

  • An amazingly cheap price for 2 days of racing and shuttling and good vibes.
  • Your own custom number board with your name printed on it.
  • Maybe more?! (not like you NEED more, though…)
  • The earlier you register, the lower your race number!

Ready for some new lines?

Dusty has been busy. Be prepared for a little change here and there, or a big change, he is still working on it. He reckons there might be some surprises in Decemeber.
