Petzl Adventure Nights

I'm riding in the Petzl Adventure Night on the 26th (Sat) at Jonkershoek and really looking forward to my first night race. I'll be riding with Rod, a good friend who will also be my Epic partner if all goes to plan.

Here's a bit of info on how the whole thing works (cribbed from the website):

What is the night challenge?
The Night Bike race is held at night. Two person teams race against the clock around a course that is described by a "Route Book" á la Rally Style. The teams start in minute intervals and team members must stay together for the duration of the race.How does the NIGHT Challenge work?

How does the night challenge work?
Using the Route Book and odometers to navigate, each team follows the prescribed route and visits strategically located checkpoints on the course. Their visits are recorded by an electronic punching system at the checkpoints which ensures that teams complete the course. The team's time is taken when the 2nd member of that team crosses the finish line.

It all sounds like a lot of fun!
