KTM Adventure Rally Canada – Sep. 27-29 2018

Epic Canadian wilderness with rally style navigation!

Published on 05.11.2018

Ready to test your navigation skills while riding in some of the most beautiful terrain in British Columbia? The KTM Adventure Rally Canada 2018 is just the ticket. Don’t have a KTM? No problem! Even though it is a KTM event, it is open to any brand of motorcycle over 600cc.

How It Works

Teams of two, three, or four riders will attempt one of three routes while trying to stay as close to the proper total milage as possible. GPS and paper maps will be used to find waypoints with special tests added along the way.

The Classes

Since it is a competition, there are three classes – R1, R2, and S. R1 is the hardest and knobby tires are required. It is also not the recommended class for the biggest of the big bikes. It is 1000 kms over three days of riding with big elevation changes, rocks, logs, single track, river crossings and mud. Not for the mellow riders.

R2 is called the Adventure Touring Route and is 900 kms over two days. This route is mellower than the R1 class but with only 20 percent paved, it is still a challenge and knobby tires are also mandatory.

The S class is the Adventure Street Route and the main challenge is to stay on course for more than 1400 kms over two days. The route is a mix of windy street roads with large gravel roads mixed in.

There will also be KTM Demo Rides and Chris Birch Riding Clinics, as well as food, drinks, and good times.

With his sights set on doing what he loved for a living, Sean left college with a BA in Journalism and dirt bike in his truck. After five years at a dirt-only motorcycle magazine shooting, testing, writing, editing, and a little off-road racing, he has switched gears to bigger bikes and longer adventures. He’ll probably get lost a few times but he’ll always have fun doing it. Two wheels and adventure is all he needs.
