Could a focus 1.0 eco 125 (17 plate) handle a 4 bike roof rack?

Ive never had a bike on roof of a car let alone 4 but I seen a car last week with 4 and got me thinking.

Ford specified the maximum allowed roof load at 75 KG total. This basically means that the 4 bicycles together can weight 75 KG minus the weight of the roof bars and bicycle carriers. 

Carrying 4 bikes on top of the roof should not be a problem for the 1.0 ECOboost. However be prepared that the fuel economy will be affected drastically.

Ahh OK. Think our bikes might be a bit heavy. Have this fear I'd forget they're there anyway and rip them off.
