KTM Adventure Rally Europe: Exploring The Rugged Beauty of Greece

Orange army takes on Greece’s rugged backcountry over three days of epic riding.

Published on 10.13.2021

While the pandemic has struck down many events, KTM’s European Adventure Rally is back in action again, offering attendees a “Ready to Race’ experience in the incredible landscapes of Greece. From gravel roads to enduro-style trails, participants experienced three days of breath-taking riding in some of the most epic and challenging terrain the country has to offer.

Tailored to suit all rider abilities, from beginners up to seasoned Adventure pros, the event welcomed self-navigating adventurers riding alongside guided group riders. Guiding the groups of orange bleeders were KTM R&D Street Test Manager and four-time Baja 1000 winner, Quinn Cody, together with six-time Enduro World Champion Giovanni Sala among other KTM ambassadors and KTM staff from Mattighofen, Austria.

Rolling out from the event’s basecamp in the beachside town of Nafpaktos, participants were treated with three long and challenging days of riding, clocking over 700 km in changing mountainous terrain. The first day of off-road riding saw attendees head toward the historic destination of Delphi through a series of mountain peaks and valleys. For the second day of riding, participants had to cross the Corinth Canal as they headed towards Kalavryta.

On their way back to Nafpaktos, riders were provided with the option to climb a rocky and somewhat extreme uphill section for a few hundred meters. Challenging as it was, this section quickly became the source of many epic stories with participants trying out their skills on their way to the top. Heading towards the north for off road day three, participants ventured through a network of forest trails towards the village of Ano Chora.

KTM’s Adventure Rallies are a place for riders to come together and share their passion for adventure riding in some of the most breathtaking scenery in the world. It’s an opportunity to form lasting friendships and create unforgettable memories with like-minded riders – including KTM ambassadors and employees. Unfortunately, the event on this side of the pond has been cancelled for the last two years. Let’s hope KTM puts this premier Adventure Riding event back on the calendar in North America for 2022!
