Roof of Africa `09

So last week we headed for the little moutainous landlocked country of Lesotho to once again spectate one of the most greuling enduros in the world. There were some big names entered this year in what promised to be the toughest of all!

Excellent to see photos of Lesotho. I rode a mountain bike across Lesotho in 1989. Very cool country. Always dreamed of doing the Roof. A bit far away now.
