This year ALPEN was not just part of the event but rather in the middle of it! And this happened with 25 customers from South Africa, Sambia and Botswana. In addition, Ryan Hunt from our sales partner Vermont Sales and his friend Guillaume Hardy from South Africa entered the spectacular race as the ALPEN RACING team.
Imagine 1500 dirtbike maniacs from all over the world, setting their sails towards a tiny, quaint city in the heart of Europe to challenge one mighty „iron mountain“. Imagine there‘s nothing such as serious price money, a lucrative factory contract or a championship title.
These guys trade thousands of miles of travel for four days of adrenaline, sweat and - disappointment. Because at the end of the day only a handful of riders will even see the finish line of this outstanding and hardest enduro-race of the world.
It‘s the Myth of Erzbergrodeo, which attracts thousands of ambitious dirtbike athletes to return to Erzberg each year - since more than 2 decades. 23 years of Erzbergrodeo have also developed motorcycle offroadsports into a worldwide established type of action-sports - followed by millions of enthusiastic fans.
Our racer Ryan Hunt succeeded to qualify for the main race. We congratulate our ALPEN RACING Team to participation and are happy that both are fine and mastered an action-packed experience!
