The Roof of Africa Supports RIDERS FOR HEALTH.
The race will consist of a Round the Houses race which is a short three lap race run on the streets of the capital Maseru. This is an exciting stage and guaranteed to get the adrenalin pumping for both riders and spectators alike as the bikes speed around the tar roads.
Directly after the Round the Houses riders will head off on a +/- 50 km Time Trial which will determine the start positions for the following days racing. The Time Trial will be a semi technical route with some nice open sections as well as a downhill pass or two just to get the heart rate up and offer a taste of what to expect the following day.
Day two arrives and as the sun rise the real racing begins. The route will no doubt be Extreme as is the nature of the Roof of Africa. Pass after Pass , Goat track after Goat track and rock after rock you will make your way around the route in your various class’s and hopefully up to the final freshly cut climb to the finish where you will be welcomed by your crew.
Day 3 is upon and as the Pros gear up for the final push for the win; the rest of the field is in survival mode with tired aching bodies ready to do battle once again. Another Extreme day awaits with some brand new route especially the new 70k Gold Loop which will be the deciding factor as to who will make it or not. An Extreme loop like no other awaits Gold of which 30 kms is unbelievably tough. Get through this in time and you are on your way to glory.
A common finish awaits all classes on the last day and as you arrive under the finish banner you will know you have completed the toughest race in the world and spent every ounce of energy to get there.
