    I ride a 2019 250 xcw, or 2017 1090 Adventure R.

    Looking to join or make a Dacre team for this year. As of right now I’m leaning towards doing Bronze on the big bike as I want to try to be the first person to complete Bronze on a big bike.

    I can be convinced to do silver or gold though on the smaller bike.

    I completed Bronze in 2019 on a 450 exc.

    I finished Bronze on 690 Rally. I guess that is considered a small bike? :D

    Yup! Was yours the one with the rally fairing and extra gas tanks? Your bike would of been heavy but still not big Adv bike class.

    Yes that was me, the no class bike. People on small bikes say it's a big bike and big bike people say it's a small bike. :dunno:lol3

    In line with what @mikel42 says, no one has finished Dacre bronze on anything bigger than a 690 Rally. :D

    He did on a 950 Adventure, and so did his teammate on a 950 SE. But that was in the way-tougher-than-now 2012 event. Everyone had one route, big bike or small. :deal

    For now, northern Ontario.
    I have entered in the Bronze class this year, my first event in Canada. Going solo and not yet chosen which bike. Currently setting up an SE, which is the fvoured choice and have the Adventure as back up. I will make the decision after some more running around on the SE.

    Are there any old race reports and position tables anywhere? Information seems to be thin on the ground regarding the history of this event.

    Yes. I rode and finished the 2010, '12, and '14. He is fast. Birch was fastest.

    I rode and finished the bronze with Mike in 2019. Different event than before. They are all tough.
