The Roof Of Africa is celebrating its 50th motorcycle rally with a snow-covered terrain. The beauty was captured and shared by the SA Snow Report.

 

The extreme weather that hit Lesotho has affected the Roof Of Africa motorcycle rally. The beautiful snow set back the times for the various time-trials. According to measurements, the snow was about 200mm thick on the ground.

The Roof of Africa motorcycle rally is an endurance race through the mountains and hills of Lesotho. The race is “considered one of the toughest off-road endurance events in the world and attracts many of the sport’s top extreme enduro competitors.”

“The route, considered one of the most treacherous and demanding within the hard enduro racing circuit, covers over 425km of the harshest terrain known to man. Riders climb from 1 400m above sea level to close on 3 000m before hurtling back down again.”

Adding snow to the mix really tested the riders taking part in the endurance race. Most were a little put out by it but one rider, in particular, was pretty over the moon! Caydian van der Spuy is a junior KTM enduro racer.

Times like this that I am happy to be 11 years old.” – Caydian van der Spuy

Snow has also been photographed in South Africa in a number of different places as the cold snap has hit. The Snow Report shares all the images they get sent to their Facebook page.
