Yup not really surprising really, no one should be travelling especially to SA where they are experiencing their second wave of the global pandemic :( https://www.iksurfmag.com/features/post ... -air-2021/
To be honest, one of the last places I want to be is in an airport with lots of other people in an enclosed space, then in an aeroplane microclimate for several/many hours, then after arrival in another airport again with lots of other people in an enclosed space.

Then repeat coming back.

Sad, but the right thing to do. Much sadder is all the people who will die as a result of this second surge. South Africans don't even have the possibility of a vaccine any time soon.

Politicians finnaly much say true- that this is china made and spread soft bioweapon to all world. You can look to China covid cases which are from feburary quite as zero, and can look to all other countries around the world and you will see very big differences. Even such highest hygiene country as Japan suffering very big covid cases. This is not possible to explain why iChina didn’t had any spice of cases during all year (after 2020 January).

You have drunk the coolaid, a99. China has had a series of subsequent outbreaks and have three ongoing, but have managed to squash each of them, so far. The new variant might change that though.

Good for Liam, since he can recover longer now .
And maybe Jesse will be back as well?

That's what I was thinking (plus I think Lasse isn't fully healed yet either). I just hope that none of the other riders pick up injuries for next time.

I wonder what will be the situation for Jesse. He was announced out of the KOTA and Lewis Crathern was officially taking his spot. I understand that Jesse has the time to recover, but it will be hard/strange and maybe unfair for Lewis.

I'm surprised they even are proposing to hold it in November/December, and then again in January/February? Does not make sense. Just cancel the 2021 event and go to 2022, like the vast a majority of other large events like this during the pandemic.

I rather see 2 events than 1.
These kind of riders don't have much events to go to and expose their riding, don't take away even more.
