South African Brett Swanepoel will start first on Friday’s stage one of the Roof of Africa in Lesotho, after setting the fastest combined time on Thursday’s Round the Houses lap race and mountain time trial. The 2015 third-place finisher outclassed 41-year-old Brit and defending champ, Graham Jarvis, and compatriot Travis Teasdale.
Staged in what is affectionately known as ‘the mountain kingdom’ the day started with the traditional lap race through the streets of the capital city, Maseru. Jarvis, along with other pre-race favourites Andreas Lettenbichler and event rookie Alfredo Gómez made their intentions clear early on, however it was the locals who made most of the running.
It’s often been said that you can't win a stage race in a prologue, but you certainly can lose it. Often then, riders tend to play it safe, making sure they save enough for days two and three.
