Event Description
The Roof of Africa race, reckoned as one of the toughest motorcycle Enduro race in the world is all systems go and race organisers are confident that this will be one of the best “Roofs” ever. The dates are 24 – 26 November 2011 with race HQ being Maseru Lesotho and will mark the 44th running of this prestigious event.

The 2010 event was extremely successful and the finish at the top of Bushman’s Pass could not have been more exciting. A few lessons were learnt and the 2011 Roof will see a full integration of the Bronze, Silver and Gold concept from Day 2. This will allow riders to decide up front which class they want to ride so it really is a “Roof for All”. It’s not going to be easy but if you are fit and a capable off roader, you will get the T Shirt.

Lesotho Off Road Association ( LORA) has decided to partner with Red Cherry Adventures and Mike Glover has been appointed as Race Director. According to a spokesperson for LORA, Charles Mopeli, the Association is looking forward to host this event again but needed help in making sure that the Roof of Africa maintains its long and rich racing history and with the help of red Cherry would like to see this event going from strength to strength,” he said.

LORA together with Motorsport SA, Red Cherry and its numerous sponsors, partners, competitors and spectators can once again look forward to a demanding, tough but doable race that will stretch over three days beginning with the traditional and extremely popular Round the Houses race in the streets of Maseru.

“Over the last few years, it has become a motorcycle-only event and has drawn even more international competitors. The Roof of Africa has become one of those events on the racing calendars of many International and local Riders as a “Must Do” event. 

The fact that our own Kiwi, Chris Birch, who has been living in South Africa this year and has won it three times from 2008 to 2010 and the likes of South Africa’s Jade Gutzeit and many top internationals would love to topple Chris off that No 1 Podium.

The 2011 Roof of Africa will again, like during its history spanning more than four decades, be an FIM event. Motorsport SA and LORA have worked hard to settle their differences and work together towards making the 2011 running of the event a massive success.

The organisers, LORA in partnership with Red Cherry Adventures are looking forward to work again closely with all their partners, sponsors and supporter
