Ultimate Dirt Rider Bucket List

Upon doing research for major dirt bike riding events in South Africa, we’ve come across so many awesome rides that many of us might not know about, so we’ve decided to create this Bucket List for novice, intermediate and advanced dirt bike riders. Also check out the Advanced Dirt Rider Bucket List
