The European KTM Adventure Rally heads to Greece in 2020
KTM is proud to announce the venue for the fourth annual edition of the European KTM Adventure Rally, which will take place in Nafpaktos, Greece, on June 9-12, 2020. With the 2020 KTM Adventure Rally basecamp set in the beachside town of Nafpaktos, 200 attendees will be able to join an exclusive READY TO RACE community event that will include three full days of riding in some of the best mountain trails Greece has to offer.
Following two successful editions in Italy and one in Bosnia in 2019, the European KTM Adventure Rally is complementing established KTM Adventure events that have been taking place in Australia, New Zealand, USA, Canada and South Africa. With its latest edition in Bosnia receiving raving reviews by participants and media, the European KTM Adventure Rally sets sails for the historic city of Nafpaktos, the starting point for a three-day-long exploration of the heart of mountainous Greece.
Starting right next to the crystal-clear waters of the Corinthian Gulf, it will take no time for 2020 European KTM Adventure Rally participants to find themselves in the sun-drenched trails and the endless mountain roads of mainland Greece. Nafpaktos and the surrounding mountains hold a special place in Chris Birch’s heart, with the KTM ambassador earning a remarkable fourth overall at the last edition of the Hellas Rally aboard a KTM 790 Adventure R.
Organized by KTM, the European KTM Adventure Rally is a community event designed to suit all rider abilities – from beginners to seasoned Adventure professionals. For 2020, participants can join one of the guided riding groups and enjoy three days of hardcore riding alongside like-minded KTM fans or select the self-navigating option and test their skills exploring the hidden paths of Greece at their own pace. The event will be open to 200 motorcyclists with the following KTM bikes: 640, 690, 390, 790, 950, 990, 1050, 1090, 1190 and 1290 Adventure models.
Hubert Trunkenpolz (CMO KTM AG): “The European KTM Adventure Rally - as part of the global KTM Adventure Rally calendar - is a perfect opportunity for us to engage with the flourishing Travel motorcycling community at ground level and collect feedback that will influence the development of the KTM Adventure range. With our range of products enjoying remarkable growth in sales worldwide, READY TO RACE community events such as the European KTM Adventure Rally allow a wide range of customers to explore the potential of their machines in varied conditions while riding alongside KTM Ambassadors, top-level offroad racers and KTM staff. After an immensely successful 2019 European KTM Adventure Rally in Bosnia, I’m eager to see adventure-spirited motorcyclists from every part of the world try out their KTM machines in the mountains of Greece in June 2020.”
