  • Ensure your motorcycle is in top running condition before participating in the event. Regular maintenance checks, including oil, brakes, and chain, are recommended to ensure optimal performance and safety.

  • Large panniers and top boxes should be removed prior to riding the “Off-Road” courses to ensure maneuverability and safety.

  • Tires should be suitable for riding the course, with a minimum requirement of 50/50 tires. Avoid excessively worn tires or those unsuitable for off-road conditions to maintain traction and control during the event.

Additional Information:

  • Safety Briefing: A mandatory safety briefing will be conducted in the mornings before the start of the event and after lunch breaks. All participants must attend to review important rules, regulations, and safety guidelines.
