Beyond the Rift Valley 2018 – Preparations

Teamwork is imperative to the success of any major project, and man, how blessed are we to have such an incredible team of sponsors, partners and crew for the upcoming Dunlop Tyres SA #BeyondTheRiftValley Expedition!

Yesterday, our key partner Front Runner South Africa came to the party with their range of bomb-proof expedition fittings, and thus begins the transformation process of the Isuzu South Africa #Xriders. I met the #JediMaster @derryckmitchell of #FrontRunnerZA and his mobile fitment unit in Malmesbury and what a wrench wizard he is.

Everything from jerry cans, halogen lights, dual-battery systems, kayak racks, pop tents, storm-proof duffel bags, ammo cases, stratchits … you name it, we’ve got it. And we will be testing it to the absolute limit once we hit those remote Rift Valley rainforests of #Rwanda!

Next up is a full branding wrap and the fitting of the #DunlopSA #GrandTrektyres, and then we’re pretty good to go, with Derek Devine and Bertus Louwsetting off on the first stage of the 5400km #CapeTownToKigali sub-continental road trip in exactly 10 days’ time …
