Multiple SA National Off-road & Enduro Motorcycle Champion Print E-mail

AltusDeWet_in_action_at_Utrecht_National_Enduro__Photo_Kevin_Scott_.jpgThe first round of the 2016 National Enduro Motorcycle Championship took place at Utrecht in KwaZulu-Natal and the first points are on the scoreboard for #Altie – Altus de Wet – who competes this year with Yamaha.

Looking back at all the happenings and the event, THIS is what he had to say:

“It is a new season and new, exiting sponsors for #ALTiE and the crew! The 2016 season did start, however, with some uncertainty about my racing – there was even a question mark IF I was going to race...

After a good first year (2015) with Sherco, things did however not work out for us and our ways parted.

“After being approached by Yamaha and Peter Wilkins during the last three  years, it was time for me to partner with a brand and a bike that believed in me.  

Yamaha was happy to get me and my sponsors on board and I am excited to be part of such a strong company and a premium brand. The amount of help and support I received in such a short time was fantastic! They made me feel welcome and I believe that we can be strong together!

With the help of Shaun Duckham, Steve and Brad Thompson and Hilton Hayward, we got the bike set up in less than a week for me to be able to tackle the first national enduro at Utrecht.

“Even more decisions were made as I joined #Altie and my sponsors with the BCR Arrow Yamaha team so as to smooth out the logistics processes – and add to the fun!

Everything happened quite quickly and there was only one more thing to do – to go and show myself and my supporters at Utrecht that these decisions were the right ones.”


“The area had lots of welcome rain the week before the race and it was set to be a good one.

After familiarise myself with the special stages by walking all of it on Friday, I knew what to expect and was looking forward to the race.

“I wanted to get a good solid result to confirm where I'm at and I wanted to have fun on the Yamaha – and that’s exactly what happened! It was an absolute pleasure riding the new Yamaha and everything worked perfect!

Lap one was a ‘sighting lap’ for the first two special stages while stage three was a racing stage from the start. In Stage 3 I clocked the third fastest time and was only 3 seconds off Travis Teasdale.

On the second lap, I had a crash in the first special stage that cost me about 30 seconds, but it was plain sailing for the second and third stages – I became more used to the bike in racing conditions and I was lying second behind Teasdale.

“On the third lap I picked up the pace even more and was within a few seconds of the winning time on every special. I felt so good on the Yamaha and I finished in a close second overall and second in Class E2 (Open Class) for the day.

“I was happy with how everything transpired and will carry on working even harder to get to the top.

A BIG ‘thank you’ must go to Shaun and everyone helping in the pits on the weekend and also a big thanks to everyone believing in me! We are looking forward to the next race.

Yes, we are back!”
