“No one’s got the time to ride to Mongolia… it’s really expensive… trying to find something you can do on a big 1200 adventure bike is quite difficult” - Jordan Gibbons
The Adventure Spec Challenge is a series of UK RallyMoto motorcycle navigation events that help you and your adventure bike get a taste of Dakar without having to remortgage the house. In fact, you can even be back at work on Monday...
The atmospheric Welsh forests of Rhayadar, the wild north of Kielder on the Scottish Borders and the iconic Isle of Man. Riders have unique access to some of the most stunning gravel tracks within Forestry Commission land across all corners of the UK.
Every rally stage has been pre-ridden by a BMW GS1200 and Triumph Explorer 1200 on showroom tyres. The stages are hard packed gravel designed to be completed by mid to heavyweight adventure bikes ridden by non-pro riders.
“The reality of rallying is that the top racers are quick. The rest of us aren’t and where we get our enjoyment from is from navigating and just having a great day out... We want to look after the bikes, we want to look after the riders. The course is fairly simple to ride. The adventure is going out and seeing the scenery, going through forests you can’t normally ride.” - Burt Hughes
The Adventure Spec Challenge comprises three events hosted by RallyMoto. The Wales 500, The Isle of Man 500 and the Kielder 500. Complete each event to score Adventure Spec Challenge points. The top three riders after three events win great prizes!
