  4. Got a message earlier that the race was starting earlier due to the heatwave. According to the Trailseeker website, the event program looks like this:
  5. Tyrone Imrie shared Hi-Risk Unit's post to the group: Pretoria East MTB (PEMBI).1 hr · +7Hi-Risk Unit added 10 new photos.Yet another attack at Ford Klapperkop last night 23/08/2015. We were contacted by the victims friends with regards to the attack via Facebook. Same look out point different suspects. These suspects were young and possibly round 18 years of age. They seem to becoming more violent. Please stay away from this area at night. Send this information to all your friends so that every one is aware of what is happening here
  6. From FaceBook today: WARNING WARNING WARNING. Share as wide as you can. Please do NOT go to Fort Klapperkop for any site seeing or to look at the lights or to be alone with your friend or for any reason. This goes for day and night visits. This is a very dangerous area and people get attacked, beaten, raped and stabbed. You are not safe there. Another couple attacked tonight 22/08/2015 and stabbed. Male very serious condition. A friend of mine and her children were attacked there on a Sunday morning a couple of weeks ago. Multiple bikers and runners attacked. No view, lights or alone time is worth the trauma or your life.
  7. Has anything further happened regarding the guy that was arrested at Klaaperkop? I went through to SAPS Sunnyside, left my details regarding a possible identity parade, and that was the last I heard.
  8. I wish I could give a description of the other 2 that were involved in my attack, but the only one I got a clear view of was the one that was arrested. One of the others was always behind me, holding a knife to my throat, and the other was busy going through the vehicle, and was not in my limited line of vision. The one that was arrested was directly in my line of sight, and I could get good look at him, particularly when he took my cellphone, and gave me back the SIM card. Hope the others get what is coming to them though.
  9. N1 is the best. According to someone that took the R511recently, the road between Brits and Thabazimbi is in a very bad condition.
  10. I posted this to the Pta East MTB page on FB on 14 May. I am one of the 2 people that was robbed last Thursday at Klapperkop. Firstly, a big thank you to the riders that stopped to offer assistance. The guy with the Sondela MTB shirt, thanks for the loan of your cellphone to call the SAPS. I had been to Klapperkop to take some photos of the low-flying aircraft taking off from Waterkloof, and was on my way back to the R21 when I decided to stop at the Telkom Tower parking area to get some photos of Wildebeest that were on the side of the road. Another car pulled up, and the driver asked if I knew the direction back to Randburg, as he was from Cape Town, and his GPS had shown him that it was the shortest route. At that time he decided to answer a call from nature, and moved over to the left, behind the dustbin. I was standing in the clearing looking over UNISA and the Telkom Tower, when I noticed 3 guys approaching at a run. When they were a few metres from us, they all produced home made knives that at that stage appeared to be small swords. One of the robbers grabbed the other man, and 2 approached me. One grabbed me by the collar of my shirt, and pushed his knife against the back of my neck, and the other pressed his knife into my back, hard enough to draw blood and leave a small scar. The robbers proceeded to drag us into the bushes, away from the road, calling for "cellphone, wallet and money." At that stage I was under the impression that they were dragging us into the bushes with the intent of doing us bodily harm, or possibly stabbing us to death. I handed my cellphone and (empty) wallet to one of the robbers, while one of the robbers took the car keys from the other man, and went up to his vehicle, and removed a laptop bag, and a bag of groceries. In all, the incident probably took less than 2-3 minutes, but if felt much longer. The robbers ran down the mountain in the direction of George Storrar. Our losses were 1 x Samsung Galaxy Note 3, 1 x Citizen watch, 1 x Tag Heuer watch, 2 x wallets containing about R1500-00 in cash, as well as the car keys to a BMW X5. One of the robbers at least was a local, as he spoke Afrikaans, and said "Ons wil julle nie doodmaak nie" while the other 2 spoke English. According to the Sunnyside SAPS that were on the scene within a few minutes, the robbers were the same men that attacked an elderly couple in Groenkloof the day before, according to the clothing description. There is also the possibility that they have a lookout that works with them, in the form of a jogger that runs from about the parking area where the robbery took place, to the next parking area where the Burry Stander cross was. Once more, a bit thank you to the cyclists that gave assistance, and take care when cycling. A big thank you to RR, the guys from SAPS Sunnyside, and members of the CPF, that resulted in 1 suspect being apprehended so far. Hopefully the others will get what is coming to them as well.
  11. Thanks River Rat. Will be going through to Sunnyside in a bit, and hope we can nail these people to the wall.
  12. Hi River Rat. I have been in contact with Trish, and will be going though to the Sunnyside SAPS today to add my case to the one already opened. The guy that was arrested yesterday appears to be one of the 3 that robbed me at knife-point on 07 May, and I opened a case at the Sunnyside SAPS against him and his friends. This will help in giving me some measure of closure, and help heal the wounds.
  13. Anyone doing this event?
