A rider every South African could be proud of

Having raced with Donovan over the past few years I have been fortunate to witness him overcome many challenges. From a wire strung across a riverbed in 2013 that nearly took his head off to racing through the night in 2015 when in Botswana, many riders got lost after an unclear section on the road… Read more “A rider every South African could be proud of”

He Balances Speed & Navigation

Donovan completed each stage of all 5 races with no medical injuries or mechanical failures. He balances speed and navigation, while managing his machine successfully. I have no doubt that Donovan will overcome every challenge, complete any and every race, and be a great ambassador for the sport.

Tough Guy

Donny must be the toughest guy out I have ever met, Vasbyt is his second name.

Commits to Everything He Does

First met Donovan at the Amageza in 2015, it was my first rally, I was having a tough time around day 4/5 and when I met him he was all smiles and happiness, then my team mates told me he was running “Malle Moto” and I had a new-found respect for a guy that could… Read more “Commits to Everything He Does”

Donovan will fulfill his dream

To compete and complete the Dakar is not just a physical challenge but also a mental challenge. I would say it is 40% physical and 60% mental. Donovan’s attitude is right towards this giant challenge and I’m confident to write the newsflash now that Donovan will fulfill his dream. My advice (which worked for me)… Read more “Donovan will fulfill his dream”

Tough as Nails

Tough as nails. Always at the end. What makes Donavan stand out to me is his ability to make a plan and adapt to the challenge. His bike broke down 1 morning on the start line in Khang Botswana, Amegeza 2015. Donavan striped the whole bike found problem and finished the night. Long before a… Read more “Tough as Nails”

His Commitment is Unquestionable

My first introduction to Donovan van de Langenberg was in 2007  on a construction project in Claremont Cape Town whilst he was working for LJ le Roux Industries in the capacity as a project manager.  This specific project was immensely challenging from both a technical, operational, budget and program perspective. All the odds were against… Read more “His Commitment is Unquestionable”
