Evia Rally Raid 2012 - Greece

Evia Rally Raid 2012

Rental Options for KTM bikes with cockpit installed (Touratech IMO & RB-TT)


5 Days
1300klm
9 special stages
-10% of tarmac
200klm beach driving
Right at the peak of Greek Spring

All combined in a spectacular island in Central Greece. This year Evia Rally is using some of the top special stages in the continental part of the country.
A perfect combination for family vacations and racing in one of the most beautiful cities, the capital of Evia Island, Halkida.
A great package of comforts, infrastructures, support, shopping and most of all food, lodging and entertainment.
This year the 100% tracks can offer excitement not only to cars or bikes, but also trucks, buggies and SSV.
For the enthusiasts, a 2 days race is included within the race with only 500klm of racing.
For supporters or just tourists and visitors of the Rally, a big variety of activities such as water sports, excursions, trekking and other.
This year a joint venture between 3 organizers in Balkans will provide an high end result in all aspects of race.
Edvin Kasimati from Rally Albania will be our Roadbook consultant and with some assistance from our Bulgarian friends from Balkan Off Road Marathon in timing equipment and management, everything aims to top of racing and competition.

So, the new poster is finished
(shameless plug - designed by yours trully),

this is shaping up to be quite an event...
Expecting lots of Italians, Bulgarians, plus
the not-too-insignificant contingent of me &
my Greek riding pals...

Have a look and let me know what you think:

Noob

Can anyone tell me if this Rally is race that I could do as a beginner? I'm looking to get my feet wet in the world of rally.

Sure,

how familiar/proficient are you with navigation? The riding should be fairly easy, it's all doable assuming you're not gunning for a podium finish... all roads need to accomodate cars as well, and there is only one small section of sand (beach) riding from what I've heard

I just need to point out that navigation here in Greece is not exactly tricky, but plentiful.
Meaning that for every rally I have raced here, there are a lot of directions (tulips) and don't even think of
navigating without using the second decimal on your ICO computer...

The longest day is about 350kms, and average speeds (because of the twisty mountain roads here) should be around the 45km/h - 50km/h range, so I am expecting 6-7 hour days on the longer stages of days 2 to 5 (day 1 is the prologue of 100kms).

Last year my buddy (and I) rode our first 5 day rally in Serres, and while it wasn't a breeze, a reasonable finishing place
was quite easy to achieve...

hope that helps!

noob wants to go racing.

Thanks for the reply. It sounds like a good event for me to start with. The down side is that I have never raced with a road book so I better get looking for a good post on how thats done. Second. I don't have a road book holder so I better get hot on that, Third; finding a way to get my bike down to the event from Germany. I guess I could rent a van but I sure would like to link up with some people to help off set the cost. and fourth; I better sign up!!:)

check the entry list on their website, I see a bunch of Austrians coming down for the race,
maybe you could hook up with them?

And, yes, get started with navigation! A simple set up like the ones discussed here:
http://www.advrider.com/forums/showt...684282&page=14
are all that is necessary... find any type of rally that has been organized in your area, beg, borrow or steal a roadbook
and get started!

The rest will come naturally at the race

A few more questions

I was reading the EVIA site info on the rally and I have a few questions.
First: Will I stay at the same place every night or will I have to to have someone drive my gear to the next stop. (I plan on hauling my bike down with the car)
Second: Proof of physical fitness. I have a yearly physical completed since Im a pilot will this proof work for when I pay my one day license fee of 50euro.
Third: What tires should I run. I have a set of deserts with only 400 miles on them.
Fourth: Should I consider pay a support company!
Im also looking for anyone who would like to ride along and help with the transportation costs.

The bivouac is the same for all 5 days... at Kimi (eastern Evia)

Not sure about proof of physical fitness, do you have a race license from your federation? I think that should be enough,
but don't take my word for it

I was thinking of running deserts as well but someone who knows the terrain well told me not to... April is still spring, mountain snow will be melting and the terrain there might be a bit muddy (or slippery wet rocks) in more than a few places... I plan on running a Pirelli Scorpion Mid hard, one front should be more than enough, I might take a second rear with me if I trash the first on the first three days

Will you be riding a KTM? Not sure about Evia this year, but in Serres last year KTM SouthEast Europe had a support truck at the race with lots of spares and mechanics. If they are in Evia I don't think you will need to pay for a support package... The organization here in Greece has helped more than a few competitors out in the past, it's a bit like a family

hope that helps, for any further info try getting in touch with the organizer directly at meletis[at]eviarally[dot]com
