VIDEO. Roof of Africa 2018. Round the houses and Time Trial

To mark the 51st running of this iconic extreme enduro event, the Motul Roof of Africa 2018 saw the introduction of an all-new opening format. The Round the Houses curtain-raiser was transformed from the traditional dash through the streets of the capital city into two laps of a custom-designed prologue at Maseru Mall.

Excitement mounted as the riders then set off for St Anthony’s School near Roma for the 48km time trial. This would see competitors tackle terrain that has not featured in the event for a decade.
