Bronze qualifier 2017
« on: March 27, 2017, 03:48:43 pm »
So who's is gonna do the Bronze qualifier?
On the last day of last years Roof I was so incredibly tired that  I told myself "I would never do this again".
About a week later most of the pain was forgotten and the thought of doing the Roof again this year cropped up in me.
Then about a week ago the entries for the Bronze qualifier opened and my "friends" pushed me into entering.
So ja,  there we go, I am doing the Bronze qualifier in May.
Me and Michiel went for a quick training session in Lesotho yesterday.
Here we are on "Gutter pass"

Daryl Curtis is involved in the route design apparently: http://us10.campaign-archive1.com/?u=ca13a311886398f51ef6c85e2&id=bb788610cf&e=3f28c1006c

Edg's, that is a good question,  I would hope Ha Patrick, simply because of all the open space and easy accessibility but then again.... :thumleft:

Howzit Chaps,

I'm also doing the Bronze Quali this year. Nervous, but I'm sure it'll be an awesome weekend no matter how tough it is! Good luck to everyone who is participating!

Anyhow, I'm currently in Tanzania, but will depart for Lesotho on or about the 4th of May from Pretoria. Any of you chaps keen to team up for the weekend? Let me know. I have a Cruiser Station Wagon (Slow as Fuck), but it has a roof rack and can comfortably fit 4 or 5 people. I also have a 3 bike Trailer. At the moment we are three in the vehicle.

Just whatsapp me and we can see what we can figure out. 0eight45zero124double6

Regards

2017 was to be my year at the Roof. But since moving to Cape Agulhas, I have not been able to find any enduro riding/training venues, so out of desperation, I sold my enduro bike and bought a 690  :xxbah:
'69 Model.

So how did the boys all fare?
I'm very chuffed with Lil Edgy coming in a respectable 44th and very 1st experience riding in Lesotho  :thumleft:
He lost 20 odd places just at the base of Bushmans when he took a wrong turn....live and learn I suppose
So now to convinc his grade 11 teachers that he's off to Roof '17 :ricky:

What was the nature of the route, looks like it was quite a fast one from the times , 100 kms in 4 hours ?
