Adventure Rally Rockies Edition

Get ready to ride! 70+ points to find, 5 special tests, 1 epic weekend of riding, July 24–27, 2014!

Not being in Gunnison, Colorado, to take part in the first-ever Adventure Rally - Rockies Edition could possibly be the biggest mistake of your life.

You will miss out on riding to some amazing points of interest.

  • Do you really want to miss going to Pie Town?
  • Does skipping the barbecue in Tin Cup make any sense to you?

The custom map by Butler Maps is ready to go, and Double Take Mirror’s Ned Suesse has put together an amazing clue book for the event. Together they outline near endless riding possibilities covering everything from sick single-track to awesome asphalt.

Additionally the whole team has dreamt up some amazing special tests taking place at The Inn at Tomichi Village. These include the Motion Pro Tire Challenge and the first-ever (that we know of) Adventure Gymkhana on Saturday the 26th. Details on the Motion Pro Tire Challenge are top secret—in fact, we might have already said too much. Adventure Gymkhana is a special test, taking place on a closed course defined by cones and obstacles to challenge your motorcycle handling skills. Attempts are timed and guaranteed to generate big grins from both riders and observers.

Thursday through Friday are for Adventure Rally participants only, but all riders and motorcycle fans are invited to stop by The Inn at Tomichi Village on Saturday the 26th. You can check out displays from our sponsors and even give Adventure Gymkhana a try!
