The place where you grow up, ends up shaping your passion.
Western Province Off-Road Open Class Champion, David Ellis, cut his teeth among the mountains of Namaqualand. Fast tracks littered with lurkers and hidden rocks became second nature to him. The throttle has one position, pinned, flat out. It sounds easy twisting a piece of plastic around an aluminium bar, but to keep it completely twisted while your mind fights against it takes balls of brass. At any stage an object could wipe you out and only announce it's presence once you recover from the crash.His approach towards riding has been coined, "The Hooligan Style", but every move and adjustment he makes is done with careful judgement.
This is Home Ground. A place where the dust never settles.
