Roof of Africa


This last Friday I took a day off and went to the Roof of Africa extreme enduro race.  This is perhaps the most difficult motorcycle enduro race in the world.  The riders go through the extreme terrain of Lesotho often under extreme weather conditions.  This year of 400+ riders that entered, only 62 finished the race!


Here's a couple videos and a picture.  Conditions got MUCH worse after I took these.  We got near 3.5 inches of rain during the weekend!

This is the last of the bronze class riders helping each other up a mountain.  The pictures really doesn't do justice to how steep it was.  The best of the "gold" riders just rode up.
