Touratech UK Travel Event 2013

The Touratech trophy has been designed to be a fun competition open to anyone, no matter what their ability or what type of bike they ride. The competition will take place at the Touratech UK Flagship store in South Wales. It will be held during the Annual Touratech Travel Event which runs from Friday the 3rd May to Monday the 6th May 2013 in Ystradgynlais, South Wales.

To enter the Touratech Trophy competitors must pay 20 plus the 10 to attend the Travel Event. The entrance fee for the competition includes a T-shirt, Competitors medal, camping, access to all the talks, ride outs and Walters Arena on the Sunday.

The teams will be picked out of a hat on the Friday evening. This is to ensure the teams are equal and have a good mix of experienced riders and beginner riders within each team, to win, team mates will have to work together and help each other.

The Touratech Trophy Tasks

Task 1: Quiz
The quiz will be in standard Pub quiz fashion. The questions will be broken into 5 sections with 5 questions in each.

Task 2: Trials Course
The trials course will be a simple course involving some basic obstacles and precision riding. All competitors will use AJP motorcycles provided for the event by AJP.

Task 3: Motogymkhana

Task 4: Marked Rideout
The ride out will take place on the road using the competitors own bikes. The team will be asked to follow a route that should take about 30minutes during which they will be followed and marked by a qualified instructor.

Task 5: Timed Tyre Change and Camp setup
Teams will have to unpack 2 panniers and set up camp, wash you hair in a home made shower then change the front tyre of a bike. Finally the team must break camp and pack it all back into the panniers.
