For me the aim to participate in a competition, outside of my profession in rally raid, is to discover a new country and exceptional landscape within a good organisation. As I got the chance to see parts of the track during the adventure weekend in March. I was sure, that the Lesotho Sky Race offered nice single tracks, technical downhills and daily distances which are also suitable for non-professional riders.
I enjoyed the very family like atmosphere as well as the typical lodges with all their hospitality. “Merci” to Darol and Christian for their professional organisation. The tracks brought us to wild and lonely places, which are unreachable, if you don’t know the area – within all the safety and medical care. The week was fantastic and I left with lots of good memories.
