Gibraltar Race – The Gibraltar Race is a race that generates great curiosity among lovers of knobby wheels. A year ago, the Moto Raid Experience tour operator showed this formula. So, it allows enthusiastic travelers and Enduro riders to walk the most beautiful roads of Europe through a mixed route.
From Athens to Gibraltar, passing through Italy
From Athens to Gibraltar, passing through Italy, the “European Dakar” allows you to live the experience of the great raid to amateur riders. With their bike, they take part with determination and strength. They have completed 9000 kilometers between asphalt and gravel. After the edition of last June, the organization wants to repeat the experience. But with some improvements.
So, during EICMA 2016, Moto Raid Experience presented the 2017 Gibraltar Race. It will not leave from Athens. Not from Burgas, on the Black Sea. 8000 kilometers of asphalt and dirt tracks. The formula remains the same. So, a regularity race dedicated to amateurs. An adventure to be faced with a maxi Enduro bike on a mixed path. With about 30% off at each stop.
2017 Gibraltar Race ha a new path
500 trip distance to go in two weeks. From 24 June to 8 July. It’s a new path, with two ferry crossings. They allow participants to take a rest. The Black Sea-Gibraltar will head to Macedonia, passing through Montenegro and Albania. Then, they embark to Bari. Some Italian stage and, then, in Civitavecchia. There will be a ferry from Barcelona.
In Spain, the riders will continue to the French and Spanish Pyrenees. So, they will arrive in Portugal. All routes of Spain, leading up to the arrival at Gibraltar, will be different from those of the first edition. With some new special test stages.
The Express version
Also for the 2017 there will be an option to subscribe to the Express version. It allows to do only half of the raid. Either the first or the second part. In this case, Civitavecchia will serve as a watershed city. Registration fee: 2500 euro. More information at www.gibraltarrace.com
