KTM Adventure Rally Hits the Rockies for 2019

A fun weekend with KTM Staff and fellow ADV riders in beautiful Colorado.

Published on 02.20.2019

The U.S. Adventure Rider Rally is set to return for its 16th year in 2019 for an adrenaline seeking weekend at the picturesque Beaver Run Resort in Breckenridge, Colorado. This rally offers riders of all skill levels the opportunity to ride with professional KTM factory racers and explore the Rocky Mountains in its purest form – on two wheels. This is the only national festival for KTM owners and enthusiasts but is open to all street-legal motorcycle brands.

The KTM Adventure Rally includes spectacular riding opportunities, demo rides on KTM’s latest Adventure lineup, the opportunity to speak with KTM’s factory technicians, enjoy an awards dinner and take a first look at the brand new KTM 790 Adventure. Open to all brands, KTM’s ADVENTURE Rallies are a place for like-minded enthusiasts to come together and share their passion for adventure riding in some of the most breathtaking scenery in the world.

Routes will include various single-track trails and backroads for all skill levels throughout the Rocky Mountains. There will be an option for riders to go on self-guided rides with fellow enthusiasts. There will also be the option to ‘Ride With the Pros’ on guided rides led by offroad legends and KTM Ambassadors Mike Lafferty, Scott Bright, Taylor Robert, Russell Bobbitt and Paul Krause. Jimmy Lewis Riding Schools will be on-site conducting lessons and hosting nightly activities along vendor row with a ton of Adventure motorcycle aftermarket companies and KTM’s Factory R&D team will be answering technical questions all weekend long.

This year, an all-new element has been added with an overnight camping option following a day-long offroad adventure. Participants will depart Beaver Run Resort’s basecamp on Friday morning to set out on a 100-150-mile ride, ending at the overnight campsite with dinner provided. The next day, participants will head out on another excursion that will bring them back to basecamp for Saturday night’s awards ceremony.

Ultimate Race Qualifier

KTM will welcome back the Ultimate Race Qualifier for the second-straight year. Participants must be amateur riders not having held a professional racing license or having competed at the professional level within the past 10 years in any motorcycle racing organization. More details will follow regarding this part of the event, but you can sign up now to secure a spot. In the meantime, you can read about last year’s Qualifier here.

The 2019 KTM Adventure Rally will be held Sept. 13-15. For more information or to register visit the official page here.
