What a year, We could never have imagined that this time last year as we were planning our 2020 course schedule the world was about to shut down.
We spent the first half of 2020 hoping this would all go away and we could start our season in the fall. As we all know the second wave of COVID has proven too be even more challenging then the first.
I was registered to compete in the Dakar January 2021 only to have my team withdraw last minute due to COVID issues.It was to late for me to arrange another ride so my 2021 Dakar ended before it started. Hopefully by the 2022 version of the race COVID will be a horrible memory and we will be able to participate in the 2022 Dakar.
We are fully intending on returning to offering riding courses in 2021 however the schedule will be dictated by Dr. Henrys rules. We are hopeful the Vaccinations will be fully underway in the first quarter of 2021. I am hopeful all goes well with Vaccinations and that we may be able to hold a course by end of April or mid May. Given the average age of our course participants puts them in an age group more at risk of complications everything is COVID dependent we will not run our courses despite Vaccinations if there is any chance our student could be exposed to the virus while attending one of our courses.
Thank you all for your patience in this difficult time. We are confident there is now a light at the end of the tunnel hopefully in the near future this will end and we will get back to something close to pre-COVID times.
Stay safe everyone hopefully we will have the opportunity to ride with you all in 2021
