I have also heard that the cops go mad with the bribes but luckily never experienced this before?

In 2012 when we went, some guys got knocked at the border for taking in too much booze. I try to not make it too obvious.

They try it with guys taking in their racing fuel as well - want you to buy in Lesotho. I always tell them it is special pre-mixed which cannot be bought there  :imposer: Yes gas is cheaper there but quality variable depending where buying.

I see Roof of Africa is part of the Red Bull Hard Enduro series this year, that's pretty cool. Does anybody know what big names will be competing?

Brad Cox is not a big name, big ego yes  :o  He tried Gold and saw his nought last year those mountains sort the men from the boys  :3some:

Oh and although Letti is registered I hear he is not coming but may be Letti junior that is not coming ...

Sounds like Wade had another off trying to get back on it - heard dislocated shoulder? Anyway best that he is properly race fit again before next year. Definitely some local lads likeTravis that will chase down the imports  :ricky: Can't wait - some nice riding plotted to get to the Mountain Kingdom roll on next week.  8)

Sithe, I've just put the name to the face. How was your shoulder after Man & Machine? I'm almost surprised to see you in riding gear. Ian
