Twelve days after leaving Windhoek, the Honda Quest convoy finally arrived back at their starting point, tired, happy, content and richer for the experience.
Over the course of 12 days, 10 of which were competition days where teams could score points on various skills and tasks, these twenty finalists covered over 2,000km, some over the harshest terrain that this rather arid and sparsely populated country can offer.
Honda Quest did not aim to pick purely the most skilled riders, but instead set out to pick the most versatile team.
They were looking for people who showed a keen sense of adventure and were curious about their surroundings.
The Quest organisers also wanted to know who would get along with their fellow competitors and could thus contribute to team spirit, as well as taking the initiative with special tasks.
