Nothing in The 2013 silver (that I got to) Roof was un-rideable, nothing in the Bronze qualifier this year was un-rideable. Nothing in any of the previous Roof routes that I've ever ridden in Lesotho (7 times this year) has been un-rideable.You obviously don't enjoy extreme enduro. Nothing wrong there.
On the other hand many others love it as can be seen by the number of riders entering events like the Roof etc.
Ek stem saam met Ktmpilot!!The point is exhaustion, which is the same point of any ultra endurance sport, be it Comrades, Iron Man, MTB stage races, etc etc. Many people, including me very definitely, find immense enjoyment and satisfaction in personal endurance and overcoming exhaustion for sport and recreation, and in the dirt bike world hard enduro and riding up unrideable stuff such as Hell's Gate is what gives us that!
What about being helped by your buddies? Why can't our sport also have a team aspect to it, that can also be part of the fun, kakking off together and then re-living it afterwards all together over a couple of beers!I totally understand the exhaustion and 'extreme endurance' aspect of sport, but the point is to RIDE the motorcycle not push it... My bugbear is where there are section that have guys with ropes and hooks etc to 'help' the riders up because it is IMPOSSIBLE to get up alone. WTF is the point? so the guy that has the most supporters/assistants it up the hill 'the fastest'. Then it becomes a team sport, not an individuals race...
