    Has anyone confirmed that Jarvis is not coming? I’m sure he will he doesn’t like loosing so think he will come to win it and then not come back. In my opinion

    When last did Kym bring their top riders to the roof?

    Beer, I drink it when I`m happy or when I`m sad. I drink it when I`m alone. When I have company I consider it obligatory. Trifle with it if I`m not hungry and drink it when I am. Otherwise, I never touch it - unless I`m thirsty.

    If you booked at Ramabanta for Roof 2018 you're in luck. Looks like the Start/finish is going to be pretty close to there.

    The hard enduro action will kick off at a brand new start and finish venue this year at St Andrews School in Ha Raboletsi, approximately 55 km from Maseru.

    Route director Peter Luck said, “We needed to get new routes away from the Bushman’s area and this was the ideal place to access those routes. It is very difficult in Lesotho to find enough flat land to accommodate the Roof of Africa start, and we are very lucky to have found this spot which will also give spectators great viewing of the ‘Start and Finish’ stages in the valley below!”
