Our advanced route this year is mostly intermediate riding, with two sections of difficulty you can opt to try. The first difficult section is a 4km hill climb rated extreme for heavy adventure bikes. You will not be able to try this section unless you are in groups of two, preferably three. We are not able to recover bikes on this section. We strongly encourage big adventure bikes to take the alternative route.
The second difficult section is towards the end, but if you pick the right line and you will breeze through. There is instructions in the roadbook to guide you. There is no alternative route.
This route will become very difficult in wet conditions as the slopes will become slippery and ruts on the valley floor will fill up with water. Be prepared for anything.
Only small dirt bikes can complete the extreme section. Heavy adventure bikes take alternative route.
Expert riders only on the extreme section. Intermediate to advanced level required to complete the rest of the route.
This route is 110km to and from the event site. Please include a fuel buffer.
