Rules for the Roof
OCTOBER 16 will be the last day for any pre-race practise in Lesotho other than at any designated area approved by bulletin to all competitors in the Roof of Africa bike race.
This is in accordance with the pre-event practise rule that forbids riders from being near or on the route for the purpose of practice or familiarisation with the course 45 days prior to the start of the Roof. Note — this includes bicycling, walking and jogging the route.
Competitors found to be practising on or after October 16 will be excluded.
This also applies to the Round the Houses section.
The No Go Area for practice after October 16 is defined as the 50 km radius arc from St Michael’s.
Entry fees this year are R5 750 for the Gold and Silver Class or R5 250 for the Bronze Class, which includes competitor satellite tracking, GPS services, timing services, Motorsport SA Levies, and the community levy.
All entries must reflect in the Roof organiser’s bank within 48 hours of the entry being placed. Competitors will not appear on the entry list until full payment of entry is received. It is up to the competitor to ensure his or her entry appears on the entry list and that it is confirmed as paid.
The number of entries will be limited to 300 riders for the Gold and Silver classes and 150 riders in the Bronze Class. Once these limits are reached, waiting lists will be opened for the various classes and competitors on the waiting list will be incorporated into the entry if places become available due to withdrawal of entries.
