Cresting Basics + report
Cresting basics + More on the Plus…
Everyone was eager for this drive and at the meeting point, deflated before 7am, let’s keep it like that.
With briefing done by Marko and safety by Gonzalo, we were instructed to shift to 4L. With chef Marc in second lead, Gonzalo and Salah as sweepers the convey got moving and started warming up, if you can call it that. We started immediately with cresting and switching, the technique was key here and not speed, all fellas kept up well.
We then move to higher dunes for some side sloping, after this Marko switched up a bit handing the convoy lead to Chef Marc to an area for some more side sloping and switching lead again by Marko. Salah was next in lead towards fossil rock through some technical parts. Chef Marc was back in the lead towards the exit and took the convoy through a demanding part were the fellas needed some power to climb the mountain. Everyone did well with some second tries and only one stuck which was impressive for the level.
Great job on second lead, but leading the convey needs work. Always keep in mind the level should suit the level of those following, not to low and not to High. You will find the balance with practice.
Well done for keeping up with the level you have shown great improvement over the past weeks, still safety distance! Keep enough distance from the car in front it will give you time to react if track needs to be changed.
Not much to say you handled today perfectly, and your machine is a beast.
Well done sister, a few second tries but you are starting to get this cresting thing down
Not much to say offroader, except I hope you had fun today.
You have been on the sand a lot lately and it shows. Just watch your speed, it’s not the answer, all about technique.
Looked like you enjoyed today and was fun having you with, even though your car did get a bit hot in low range.
Well done on leading the convey you are getting better good at it, nice balance on the level.
Thanks for your support today as sweeper, we really count on you and I think you are still a bit tiered from all those recoveries yesterday.
Finally at the exit Marko upgraded Karim, Siddharth and Rathica from Junior to off-roader. Well done all of you and congratulations, all showed some skills today and are ready for more challenging drives.
Thank you Marko, great drive today!
Please rate the drive and tell us about your experience from this trip.
