What the guys had to say last year:

“It was realy cool! We rode at a more sedate pace and I got to enjoy and experience the whole
event. My partner and I became great friends and are still continually in touch!” Burry Stander

“I was very excited when Michael told us about the possible collaboration and made
me proud. I had such a great time for a good cause, what a combination” Christoph Sauser

“The riding side of W2W is incredible - but the social vibe over shadowed how good the riding was. I
really enjoyed getting to know Marcel, really enjoyed kicking back with some mates before and after,
as well as seeing many en route who I seldom get to see. I'm stoked for the 2011 edition, and will be
better prepared to enjoy all the more” Dan Hugo
