KTM just announced details for their 16th annual Adventure Rider Rally and we couldn't be more stoked!
Will you be joining us this September in Breckenridge, Colorado to ride with the pros and see all that the Rocky Mountains have to offer?
With something for everyone on the skill spectrum, this event is always memorable for all attendees. Guided rides ranging from mild to WILD are led by KTM pro riders and promise to be comprised of the best routes in the Rockies! Self-guided rides are also offered and encouraged to experience the scenery and terrain at your own pace.
Beaver Run Resort & Conference Center in beautiful Breckenridge, CO is set to host this year's festivities with plentiful lodging options and amenities.
New for this year is the Campout Ride that consists of two full days of adventure riding with a catered camping experience in between. This is an exciting opportunity for those new to adventure travel and experienced riders alike. The route will not be constrained by the parameters of returning to Beaver Run Resort at the end of day one which opens up a lot of exciting route choices.
Returning this year for the second time is the Ultimate Race Qualifier for riders wishing to test their skills in the most authentic ADV bike challenge offered anywhere. More details are set to follow but for now these are the official regulations KTM has released:
