    Alfie Cox Racing is located 70 km from King Shaka International Airport in Durban, KwaZulu-Natal. It is advisable to rent a small car from the airport to drive to us and Lesotho. A 4×4 vehicle is not necessary; a standard car like a VW Polo will suffice.

    Pre-race accommodation is available at our cottages, priced at ZAR 1,400 per person per night, including dinner and breakfast. Lunch and refreshments are not included.

    Our smallholding features a fully equipped communal kitchen and dining area. Riders are welcome to arrive from the Friday before the Roof event, with access to our workshop and technicians for bike setup.

    Shakedown Ride

    A shakedown ride, led by Alfie and/or Brad, will take place on Sunday, the 24th of November. This approximately 4-hour ride allows riders to get accustomed to the bike and make any necessary adjustments.

    Alfie will depart on Tuesday, the 26th of November, at 5:00 AM to arrive in Maseru, Lesotho, around lunchtime, to lead international riders on a shakedown in Maseru.

    Please note that the extra night’s accommodation on the 26th is not included in the Avani roof package.

    Travel from Cato Ridge to Maseru

    The drive from Cato Ridge to Maseru takes approximately 6 hours. It is recommended to leave on Monday afternoon and stay overnight at Clarens, passing through the Golden Gate Nature Reserve. Alfie will pass through Clarens around 8:00 AM on Tuesday, the 26th, and riders can ride convoy with him to Lesotho.
