I haven't secured anything yet but I'm guessing I can find something I'll probably end up on a Vespa but it will still be fun!

We have some good riders with us but unfortunatly I´m not one of them I´ll be at the end of the list.

This is our team logo


If someone from Spain wants to come with us, contact me. msrgg arroba hotmail.com

Are these guys going to the Albania Rally? It seems like a long ways away to get a rental bike.

It might make more sense to rent a bike from Greece... I know that Meletis (organizer of Evia Rally) will have KTM rentals available for that race, and he has strong ties with Edvin (organizer of Rally Albania).

I can ask around if you want

edit: Apparently KTM bikes will be available for rent through the organizers at Rally Albania...

I would love to do this event, however, I am recovering from the Australian rally this year...so no more big bike events until 2013.

We are really anticipating this rally now! We are 16 swedish riders of Rally Raid Sweden with support from Scandinavian Offroad Service that are rolling into Albania. 4 of us did it last year and loved it! I know the imperfections of last year will have been smoothed out and that we can expect a great track! We will have a few contenders for the overall win and a heap of top10 riders with us. Looks like the dutch team will be the one to beat..?
But don't think that we are nationalistic, just because half of us are Husaberg riders. It's just a great rally bike!

Off to the mx-track for some training, see you all in 90 days, my friends!

Eaob does service at the Albania rallye, so RBC would prepare the bike, bring it and the spares to EAOB who then transport it to Albania and help with support.

You can get a rental bike from RBC or from EAO itself. Recently EAO added a KTM 530 2011 to its fleet as rental bike.

Time flies! Now we are already into the last minute panic tinkering! Only a few weeks remain before we are once again back in Albania for a wonderful rally with wonderful friends!

We will pack the support truck on the 2nd of June which will then only a few days later begin its journey downwards and the rest of the team will fly in.

Can't wait to get there! See you all soon!

Does anybody kow the minimum fuel range required for this rally?

I have a 3 gallon Clarke tank on my 520, which gives me a range of a little over 150kms... do I need more?

Something came up and I might be joining the party at the last minute

@Brodovitch - Must be enough. 3 gallons is 12 liters? My EXC always consumed on this hard pack between 1 liter on 18/20 km's. So you can ride far more than the stated 130 km or suggested 160 km; http://www.rallyalbania.org/ra_12/d_regulats_en.html

@David - Really looking forward to Albania as well. I chickened out with the SE project and treated me to a 530. Tested it in Morocco 2 weeks ago and had a great time.
Hopefully Albania will be as nice. See you there!

Great Brodovitch, will be good to meet you there! If you can manage 150km you will be ok. Usually fuel is every 100km, but many stations were without fuel last year, so sometimes I was cutting it very close with my 950 with stock 14l.

Looks great, Died! Make sure the suspension is serviced, or you will get My Berg 570 has done 60 hard hours without service now and will get a complete overhaul front and rear. We will build up our bikes on Sunday and make them ready for the podium. We will leave some room in the top 20 position for you other guys..

Soon we'll catch up in the pool bar at Rogner Hotel!
