Hello Freek, excuse me for being a bit thick but i,m not sure what your saying.
Its a race, off road, between teams of riders one of whom has GPS ?
Are you taking part?
How competative is it?

Bonjour,

No, it's not a race and it's not competative.

I organize it and take part.

The route is only available as a GPS-track, so at least one rider per group have to have a GPS.

So you're welcome with or without a GPS

The unpaved parts are (legal)farm and forest roads.

Freek

Freek,

I would love to come and join in. How much experience do you need?
Don't have years of experience and 500+km off road in one day seems a lot to me if you're not that experienced.

But I'll be happy to get a Belgian delegation together and come play.

Fireboomer.

The 70% unpaved roads are easy to drive.
No 'enduro-tracks'.
But sure it is a challenge to drive 500-550 km in one day. That's why we start at 5 am on the longest day.

Thanks for the info Freek, I keep bumping into you on various threads fireboomer!!
Well I dont have a GPS but I guess if a team will have me and my Aprillia then i,m seriously interested. It could be good practise for Russian tracks...Keep me informed please this sounds like a plan.

Blackjack,

Off course you can join in. But don't expect me to be the expert.
My favorite way of learning:
Trial and error... so ;-))))

It's meant for bikes like KTM adventure, Tenere, GS etc. , but that's not an iron rule.

The 540 km has grown to 584 km.

Maybe next year a two day's 800 km trip.
