Tšolo steps up preps

MASERU – After sealing a coveted spot in this year’s Roof of Africa last month, Timello Tšolo is hard at work preparing for the world’s toughest off-road motorbike race which is dubbed the Mother of Hard Enduro because of its difficult terrain.
Tšolo left for South Africa with a group of local riders on Wednesday night to compete at the IMPI Enduro race in Dundee, KwaZulu-Natal.
The event starts today and ends on Saturday.

It will be the first time Tšolo races in KwaZulu-Natal as he prepares for his first-ever Roof of Africa outing in November.
He is ready for the challenge, he said.

Tšolo has not raced since completing the gruelling Roof of Africa qualifiers in May but has been training and doing short races around town.
“I have been training and testing my strengths since the qualifiers,” Tšolo told thepost before leaving for KwaZulu-Natal.
“I have not raced in any competition since the Roof qualifiers but I have been testing myself by going around to places like Qoaling. I have also been training in Soweto, South Africa so I feel ready,” he added.

The likes of Basia Maseatile will also be racing at the IMPI Enduro.
Maseatile is among five local riders that will take part in this year’s Roof of Africa along with his brother Tobatsi Maseatile, Joseph Motenane, Teboho Moretlo and Tšolo.
Tšolo said he is aiming to finish the IMPI Enduro race as he did the Roof of Africa qualifiers.

“I want to finish the race at least, just like I did in the Roof qualifiers,” he said.
“It’s for the first time I am racing in this race. Every race that I am going to participate in this year will be a first experience for me and it will also be preparation for the Roof.”
