    I know the Russians are planning it for early May this year ... PM Pate ... or hopefully he will pop on here to let people know the score

    Yes, this ride is on annual schedule for more than ten years, no excuses.
    This year off-road stage begins at Zirgan town (between Ufa and Orenburg) on April, 29
    and it will last hopefully not more than ten days.
    This time the biggest bikes are ktm 690's (it is not the rule, but for mighty liters long detours are too often).

    Outsiders are welcome, but probably best to bring your own bike

    Good, I think there will be quite a few outsiders that will be interested on coming to see that gorgeous part of the world and do some truly hard core riding. I better start looking for a KLR 650 for Russian offroad challenge 2013 pronto!

    This is dirt bike heaven! A skate park for enduro bikes.

    Colebatch,

    What's a good US source for your DVD's? I will probably pick up a few as Christmas Gifts, and I'd rather not pay shipping from the UK if possible.

    I dont think you have a choice. Adventure Spec are the global distributors

    Sorry mate.

    Feedback on the shipping is very good. No idea what it costs, but its a 2-3 day service.

    No worries. I was hoping I could get it stateside, but it's by no means a deal breaker.
