Young is just twenty years old but he is already a two-time winner of the Roof of Africa Enduro, the notoriously tough multi-day event in his home country.

He will face stiff completion as Cody Webb, Taylor Robert, Colton Haaker, Mike Brown, Kyle Redmond, Max Gerston, Ty Tremaine, Cory Graffunder and a host of other top off-road racers will be hungry to take the top step on the podium for themselves.

Look for more top riders to be confirmed in the coming week.
