Kyle Dohne, a South African farmer by trade, is a world record

holder for 24 hour paddling record on an Epic V10. The social rider

has never raced professionally but this year he aims to conquer

Roof of Africa.

Why are you participating in ROA?

It has always been on my bucket list to do, however I am also doing

it for my best friend Matthew MacDonald (28) who was diagnosed

with Leukaemia recently, thus I am dedicating this race to him and

all other Leukaemia patients fighting this dreaded disease.

What Class are you in for this year's ROA?

Gold. With the Roof of Africa being possibly one of the most

extreme races in the world, I have decided to do the Gold Class

because nobody ever prepares or trains for Leukaemia or the very

toxic and strenuous treatment that follows it.

How many times have you participated in ROA?

This is my first attempt.

What are your goals for this year ROA?

To have enough will power to cross the finish line for my friend,

Matthew MacDonald.

What can the spectators expect from you?

Keep a sharp look out for number 65 and throw me a tow rope

please.

I am an outgoing and bubbly 17 year old who is passionate about Extreme

Enduro as well as Motocross. I’ve been riding for just over four years, in

this time I’ve represented Team South Africa at the African MX of Nations

twice, at the Southern Off-road Challenge in Namibia, was placed third in

the Enduro World Cross Country Championship in 2014, was the

youngest woman to complete Bronze at the Roof Of Africa at the age of

sixteen in 2014, placed third at the 2015 African MX of Nations in the

Ladies and was placed third in the Ladies South African National

Motocross Championship in 2015.

What Class are you in for this year's ROA?

Silver

How many times have you participated in ROA?

2014 Roof of Africa, completed Bronze.

Why are you participating in ROA?

I love extreme Enduro and the challenge of pushing myself to the limit

and beyond. An event like the Roof takes you out of your comfort zone

mentally and physically.

What are your goals for this year’s ROA?

To finish silver.

A message for spectators?

The most rewarding part of my single Roof experience is the

overwhelming support I was showered in at the finish of Roof Of Africa

2014. The Cheering and positive vibe given by the spectators is what

keeps me going. I can’t wait to be a part of this again at the finish of Roof

Of Africa 2015! So look out for me on bike number 124!!
