Rules for the Roof

The Witness - Wheels - - RACING -

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.
