Nieuwoudtville Flower Motorcycle tour-

NIEUWOUDTVILLE FLOWER BIKE TOUR

 

It’s flower time and that means Namakwa time!

We have put together a beautiful 3-day tour to Nieuwoudtville and its surroundings at the end of August. If all the stars align we should be in for a great flower spectacle

Each year the wildflowers appear and peak in August and September. The locals have proudly dubbed Nieuwoudtville “the bulb capital of the world”, and they aren’t kidding. There are bulbs everywhere – in gardens, farmyards and fields, along the roadsides and hidden in every nook and cranny. It’s the largest variety of indigenous bulbous plants in the world and an annual flower bonanza.

Tom Vialle secures KTM’s 13th FIM MX2 World Championship Title!

Tom Vialle

Red Bull KTM Factory Racing’s Tom Vialle has been crowned 2020 FIM MX2 Motocross World Champion after winning the first moto aboard his KTM 250 SX-F at the MXGP of Pietramurata in Arco di Trento, Italy today, Wednesday, November 4.

Vialle continues a rich MX2 history for KTM as the ninth rider to win a championship title in the lower capacity class aboard a KTM 250 SX-F. The Frenchman, who came into the penultimate round of 2020 with a sizeable points lead, took a dominant win in the opening moto at the picturesque Italian track to secure an emotional first world title.

In only his second term racing at Grand Prix level, 20-year-old Vialle has demonstrated incredible talent and maturity in his approach throughout the 18-round championship. In a year of difficulties due to the global pandemic, Vialle’s strong start to 2020 was halted when MXGP racing was abruptly paused after just two rounds back in early March.

The Frenchman returned for round three in Kegums, Latvia in August to win his second Grand Prix of the season, ahead of an intense schedule of races in the weeks following. The KTM star battled hard with the MX2 competition, scoring consistently strong results to earn a comfortable lead thanks to his seven Grand Prix overall victories heading into the final triple-header of the year.
