The Roof of Africa 2011

Labelled, the maddest and baddest race in Africa, The Roof of Africa is an epic three-day Hard Enduro. Now fans can witness the shocking highlights from the 2011 event in the official review from Duke Video.

Available now as a high quality download and on DVD, The Roof of Africa 2011 review is packed with spectacular action featuring more the 200 extreme dirt bike riders.

The 45th Roof of Africa event, in November 2011, was held in the Kingdom of Lesotho. It promised one of the toughest challenges anyone would expect to face, as the race organisers attempted to drain the energy out of every competitor.

The route took riders up and down treacherous rocky climbs and rivers with names like Mankanuba, Bushmans, Free Fall, Spiderman, Mad Cow and Belekomo.

Starting with a manic race through the streets of Maseru, the pain continued for another two days as the racers covered 300km-plus and spent 20 hours in the saddle. Only the fittest and strongest survive, so very few make it to the finish line at the summit of Bushmans.

The race has been dominated by New Zealander Chris Birch for the last three years, but Britain’s Graham Jarvis, a magician on a motorcycle, South Africa’s home-grown hero Jade Gutzeit and the likes of young Marc Torlage, experienced Darryl Curtis and German legend Andreas ‘Letti’ Lettenbacher were all out to dethrone the Kiwi.

The Roof of Africa is a brutal challenge of man and machine against terrain – to compete in this race is an adventure, but to win is a conquest, and now you can witness this extreme event for yourself.
