    Can't do it this year but am wondering, as the Regs say "singles and Twins" whether that's a hard and fast rule or whether a Triumph Tiger800XC would be acceptable, being a Triple? :ear

    A xc800 is fine, that's what my team mate has.

    So you haven't heard that MV makes a 675 triple now? Benelli? Italy has a history with triples. More so than England probably.:D

    Anyway, good to hear the Regs are not written in stone.

    we will be arriving some days before and staying in limone piemonte doing the LGKS and other routes as a shake down, heading over to the start, staying a few days at the finish for some more trails and then heading back.

    who else is planning on staying on for a few days before/after?

    Nic: any idea of how many teams have entered ?

    we have bikes with limited fuel Range 11/12 Ltr and a Range of about 200 Km at max , is there fuel along the Route , or what do the entrants do to complete the distance

    Thanks

    Won't be a problem , usually in every small town there's a pump; just have some small euro notes (10 , 20 euro) for the self-service ones , and take note of the locations of them (viamichelin.com could aid) respect the ride so to don't have to do big detours.

    Hi all,

    I am sorry for such late replay. I was on holiday with very little access to internet.

    200k kms of autonomy are perfect. What Giorgio said it is right 100%.

    I sent some specific dettails about the rally to each rider. There will be 7 UK/EIRE teams including a MCN official team testing some bikes.

    There will be a total of 100 teams (300 riders).

    The following week I will stay in that area for riding off and on road.

    Please contact me for any question.
