Roof of Africa videos..

Recommended Posts

Here is a link to the homepage of a Youtube uploader that picks difficult spots on the course and films the action. No music and lots of 2 strokes (especially YZ's) There are a lot of videos for hours of extreme enduro entertainment.

Thanks for posting!!! I like this kind of stuff. It is ugly it is hot,rocky and it is even a few days long. I can't imagine how hard this is. One day is hard. Multiple days are crazy. Some of it is beautiful in a brutal way. You have to be tough to do these races.:thumbsup:

I see my fellow blue 2-stroke riders climbing those hills pretty easily :thumbsup::ride: ....than them on stellarly-publicized enduro-inspired bikes haha! :lol:

....Moreso, i like the YZ125 doing that hill! A rider (Marc Torlage) in a YZ125 actually beats a lot of them in 200's (under the 200 category) and made it even in the Top 10 during the 2009 Roof of Africa :lol:

With that performance shown in the vid, no wonder why out of 39 blue entries, 6 were in the Top 10 finishers, with only 3 of them even while they were plenty of them who joined in (63) :lol:

The beginning (I haven't watched it all yet), is a great example of bikes and riders that could benefit from a Rekluse. Whenever I see those kind of problems, I just think of how much easier it would be with a Rekluse.

Also, maybe easier said than done - not a single rider was standing on their pegs - everybody was paddling and sitting down. Now I am not a competition level rider, indeed I purely suck off-road, but I've had a lot more luck on a difficult hillclimb standing up at least a little on the pegs than sitting down.
