Wrapping up a stellar 2016 season in the best possible way, Rockstar Energy Husqvarna Factory Racing‰Ûªs Graham Jarvis managed to successfully defend his Roof of Africa title taking a decisive win at the 48th edition of South Africa‰Ûªs prestigious annual extreme enduro event.
Following his winning performances at Erzberg, Romaniacs, Battle of the Vikings, GetzenRodeo and Ukupacha during 2016, Jarvis entered this year‰Ûªs Roof of Africa with only victory on his mind. Following a well-calculated plan he placed 17th at the ‰Û÷Round The Houses‰Ûª qualifying run, before going on to post the fastest outright time at the opening‰Ûªs days closing Time Trial session.
With probably two of the season‰Ûªs longest days of competition laying ahead, the British extreme enduro star knew exactly what he had to do to battle for his fourth career victory in South Africa. Launching the first bid of his attack on day two, the TE 300 mounted rider crossed the line second behind Alfredo Gomez.
