mainly from the surrounding countryside, are still missing.

and her family have suffered an unfortunate inundation that thanks god, without life casualties,
has however left her house wrecked. The only family’s financial support, Janram’s Thailand's
Off-Road Adventures motorcycle and bicycle company has been struck by the same fate,
and all the motorcycles and equipment have been buries in tick mud.

The Kamala Enduro Club event
On August 01 and 02, 2010, The Kamala Enduro Club of Pukhet has hosted again a motorcycle
off-road event that drew 57 riders from as far as Chang Mai and Bangkok.
The mastermind of this well organized weekend of games was
Mr. Santi Atthasap, vice-chief executive of Kamala subdistric administrative organization,
and president of the local Enduro Club, who designed an enjoyable and sometimes extremely technical raid
through the mountains of central Pukhet.
The support of Riding Magazine and other national sponsors contribute to elevate the level of this occurrence
that stretched through sport, friendship and charity purposes.
Riders of surprising excellent skills kept the competition happy while the wet terrains made few victims
with its treacherous obstacles of slippery roots, stones, and sticky mud.
At the end of a 3 hours ride however all participants were satisfied from a weekend that saw the activity
of dirt motorcycling at its best even in an island that, so famous to tourists,
would never be considered that suitable for adventure riding.
Our Krabi Off-Road Team was pleased to have supported such successful event.
