Update Rally Raid Sweden to Mongolia

On Sunday we had our first official team meeting at Åmme's Swedish place. We sorted out a zillion things that need to be fixed, ordered, bought, booked and so on. In the pic you see from left to right Anders "Åmme" Berglund, Mikael "Mike the Swede" Berglund and Staffan "Blutor" Johansson. Missing in the Picture is Christina Berglund Team-Manager.

Åmme who lives in UB has his Berg 570 Rally already race ready and is hitting the Mongolian dirt every weekend. He is rebuilding an KTM 660 Rally that I will use in the rally. In the pic you see the bike Staffan will ride, an KTM 660 Rally from 2007 borrowed from his friend Lelle Jonsson. It will soon be put in crate and shipped to Mongolia.

Well we are getting closer to the start, Staffan the third rider in our team is out, crashed during practice in Sweden with a brooken leg as the result.

Brother have packed a box in Sweden with some spare wheels and tires the same will be shiped by air next week.

The 660 is almost ready mainly cosmetic stuff remining and it will be a tribute to P-G Lundmark theme in the cosmetics.

Comming weekend will it be a crash couse in RB riding with all notes and warnings in Cyrilic it's the Master Rally 1 200 km in three days with start on Friday.

A bit of an update from Sweden

In a month time we are pinning it across the Mongolian flats.
Åmme tells me that the bikes are almost race ready in UB. That normally means at least a few more long nights work left. The 660 have been taken out for a short test spin.
Åmme had a proper shake-down on the Rally Berg two weeks ago on the Master Rally, three days and 1200 km. He did well, ended up midfield, had a few detours but nothing major. Same guy who did the RB will do the RB for Rally Mongolia. It is Always good to know how the writer of the RB "thinks".
All paper work done, visas approved, shots taken aso. Box with spare tires, Wheels and Heater Meals has arrived in UB.

You ca follow our progress by the GPS spots using these links:

Might be a few more things to do on the 660 & the 570, during the quick test of the 660 I found that the the rear shock there leaking it's now delivered to Ljungrens Motor for a overhaul, the last minute fixing is part of getting in to rally mode, the problem in Mongolia is if you need any more spares.
