At approximately 100 km in length, this tour will follow the enduro throughout the day. Be Ready to depart at 9am out side the Rally Connex Tent. We will actually be riding some of the route (limited sections) along with the competitors. You will also have the chance to ride some of the tramsit sections if you choose (proper bike setup and skills required). We will leave Sunday morning, just ahead of the enduro competitors. We have to get ahead of the enduro riders so that we have a good viewing spot at the first special test area.
