WHO IS THIS EVENT FOR?

OpenRoads Rally is for everyone! Whether you are a complete novice, an intermediate rider with a few years under your belt or a Dakar Rally champion - this event is for you! The routes range from easy to difficult, and are designed with bigger adventure bikes in mind. If you are an advanced rider and bring a light dirt bike, you will find the route fun, but easy. We suggest you handicap yourself and bring the heaviest bike you have!
