KTM Adventure Rallye: Tasmania

12 months ago | Words: KTM Australia

For the next chapter of KTM adventure, the fourth annual KTM Australia Adventure Rallye trades the endless horizons and red dirt of the Outback for twisting turns, rugged mountains and spectacular coastlines in Tasmania on March 24–29, 2019. For 2019, the Rallye returns to the five-day format with the focus on offering riders a truly memorable week exploring the stunning Apple Isle.
Here’s what to expect from the KTM Tassie Rallye…

Pick a road, any road, in Tasmania and it’s likely to be an awesome one for adventure motorcycling. So many twists, turns, mountains, summits, forests and coastlines to explore. The difficulty with Tassie is trying to fit it all in and not miss anything. But the 2019 KTM Rallye will incorporate many of the top “must see” adventure icons – the ones every rider comes back raving about; Cradle Mountain, Macquarie Harbour at Strahan, Queenstown, Jacobs Ladder, Western Explorer, Fatman Ferry over Pieman River, The Hazards at the Freycinet Peninsula and Bay Of Fires just to name a few.

And aside from the well-known landmarks, are the tucked away surprise tracks that you’ve never heard of. Along with KTM’s experience Rallye Route Coordinator, they’ve enlisted some local experts to ensure you get a truly unique Tasmania experience. The route has been set to offer a variety of options for riders, ensuring everyone can make their own adventure. The Main Route will cater for riders who want a more relaxed day with less technically challenging tracks than we have seen in previous years. Don’t think for a second that we are going soft though. The Breakout options will have some serious riding, with our first ever four Chili options for the truly brave.

The Rallye will kick off at the iconic Cradle Mountain, before heading down to Strahan, Hobart, Swansea and St Helens before finishing in Launceston, meaning riders have easy access back to the Ferry or the airport for transport home. With diverse terrain, a truly unique atmosphere created by the camaraderie of exploring one of the most beautiful parts of Australia with like-minded adventurers, the 2019 KTM Australia Adventure Rallye is all about offering a great experience to our Orange Adventure Riders.

Rosie Lalonde, KTM Rallye Event Coordinator: “Backing up from the Outback Run in 2018 was always going to be a challenge. Where would we go? So we decided to replace the red dirt, open skies and pure unbridled adventure of the Outback with the green, lush, twisty turns of Tasmania.  You couldn’t get more different! We’ve gone from one extreme to the other, from the North of Australia to the South, with another big logistics operation ahead of us, but we can’t wait to explore this amazing Island with our Rallye riders. When choosing the location, it was made easy when Nick Selleck simply stated – Tasmania has the best adventure riding I’ve ever done!”

Registrations open to the public at 6pm AEDT on Thursday November 1, 2018.  Those wishing to get Dealer Priority Registration information need to contact their local authorised KTM Australia Dealership.
