Dear ADV Gang, Its official. The 3rd Annual KTM Adventure Rider Rally will be held Aug 4-6 in Elko, NV. We just returned from a site inspection and meeting with the Elko Convention and Visitors Authority and we have literally been given the keys to the city. Elko is almost exactly centrally located in the western U.S. and is easily accessible from all points. Our host hotel will be the Red Lion Inn. Official invitations along with registration forms will be maiiled to all our Adventure customers on or about April 1st. This is going to be an awesome event. Last year's event in Ouray exceeded all expectations. The turnout was fantastic and the events we scheduled were all well received. One drawback to the Ouray event was the heavy vehicular traffic we experienced on the trails. Too many jeep caravans, ATVs, and other people. It was hard to really relax and enjoy riding, you were always too busy keeping an eye out for others. Since the KTM Adventure Rider Rally is first and foremost about adventure riding we wanted to go some place where we could really stretch our legs. Elko is perfect for this. Few people with thousands of miles of remote, lightly traveled trails and forest service roads, this is going to be an epic riding experience. You will get to see the Ruby Mtns (Nevada's best kept secret), Jarbidge, Tuscarora, the Pony Express Trail, Lamoille Canyon, Spruce Mtn, Merrit Mtn, Secret Pass, the Donner Trail, the list goes on and on. In addition to the rides we will be providing a full range of activities and events from Technical Seminars, Dakar Presentations, Demo Rides, Welcome Parties, and if you missed it last year a very fun banquet and awards party. I will also be holding a very special and unique Adventure Camp in conjunction with the Rally We are expecting a great turnout this year. As mentioned earlier invitations and other information will be mailed to all KTM Adventure owners on or about April 1st. There will be a nominal entry fee for this years event. Make your plans now to attend. We will post additional information on this site as it becomes available.
