We speak to the young South African rider who looks set to take enduro by storm.

It’s fair to say that Wade Young wasn’t high on people’s lists of potential winners for the Roof of Africa last year.

But at just sixteen years of age, the South African caused a massive upset by holding off riders like three-time Roof of Africa winner Chris Birch and current king of enduro Graham Jarvis to take victory in Lesotho last November.

We caught up with the talented youngster at last month’s Tough One in Shropshire, England to talk about his background and what he hopes to achieve now that he’s made everyone in the enduro fraternity sit up and take notice.
