Finally – the spring is here and the snow has almost disappeared which means only one thing: We can leave the office and head to the nature to scout the terrain for Balkan Offroad Rallye 2017.
We are entering an area which has never been used for such big events – the mountains of the south-eastern part of Bulgaria – the Strandja Mountain.
This unique terrain offers incredible diversity of tracks, sceneries and feeling without the rocks what we know from Rila, Rodopi and Stara Planina mountains. There will be plenty for everyone: Enduro and ATV will have the chance to ride some of the ridge’s foot paths, while the Cross Country cars and trucks will get on the twisty and smooth gravel and dirt roads in the ravines. The Extreme will plunge into rocky rivers, old logging roads, extreme wild areas where except the wild life and the roadbook teams, no one else enters.
Even though It was not an easy weekend ride, due to the still melting snow, the heavy rain and the soaked ground, the scouting team managed to categorize over 550 km of offroad tracks and can surely say that this will be the new “sweet spot” in this year’s edition of the Balkan Offroad Rallye.
