KZN off-road biker Kirsten Landman in Morocco this week.

KwaZulu-Natal off-road bikers Kirsten Landman and Bradley Cox started their return from Morocco on Thursday, after a pleasing practice for the upcoming Dakar Rally.

The pair tackled the Rallye du Maroc (Rally of Morocco) over the past week as part of the Bas Dakar KTM Racing Team and said it was very solid preparation for the mighty Dakar in Saudi Arabia in January.

Landman, the first African woman to finish the Dakar on a motorbike in 2020, took first place among the women riders and 21st spot overall in the “Moto-Rally World Cup” category in “Rally 2” of the Moroccan competition in the town of Zagora on Wednesday.
