"Adventure Class" - looking for info
« on: May 06, 2010, 02:51:47 pm »
Hey guys - I know a while back we were talking about the new "Adventure" class at the National Off-Roads - singles and twins over 600. Has anyone competed, does anyone know what the course is like? When are the races and where? What license do you need? What do you need for your pits? etc

Some of us are keen to get involved...

If you want to do a enduro or offroad, you need to be member of a club affiliated with that type of racing. Enduroworld csmx, wpatv etc

cocky, which KTM site? KTM SA or KTM Cape Town

found a list of National Offroads and dates:

12 /13 Feb Ermelo 400 National Offroad
19 / 20 Mar Vryburg National Offroad
7 / 8 May Mafikeng National Offroad
18 / 19 Jun Lesotho National Offroad
23 / 24 Jul Hluhluwe National Offroad
20 / 21 Aug Brits National Offroad
1 / 2 Oct Ceres WPATV National Offroad

If I understood correctly, the adventure class only runs at Nationals...

Montague is an enduro. AFAIK the adv class only runs at NATIONAL OFFROADS

if that's the case, it's really slim pickings - 1 race a year

Not worth it to get into the 'adventure class' seeing as there is only 1 race in the wc
