The Cup from Hell

The North Loop (“Nordschleife”) of the Nurburgring is one of the most famous, and probably the most notorious, of all race tracks in the world. The Nordschleife itself is more than 21 kilometers in length, but if we include the grand-prix circuit completed during the 80s, then a complete lap extends over 24 kilometers.

And a really spectacular treat was added in the middle of this season, the “KTM X-BOW CUP powered by MICHELIN”.

At KTM, ADVENTURE means much more than a big tank or a chrome-plated exhaust, and bikes adorned with stickers reminiscent of Rally successes – ADVENTURE has been KTM’s philosophy since 1997, back when the 640 LC4 ADVENTURE made its debut.



The Riding Reporters #3

It’s not hard to choose a route because there are very few roads and just as few overnight accommodation options. In Brazil there were countless hotels, hostels and B&B’s but in Uruguay you need to go in one of the sparse cities to find a place to sleep. The road surfaces are reasonable and there’s hardly any traffic. However, that changes immediately when we enter the capital, where almost half of the entire 3.5 million population of the country lives; a nation four times bigger than the Netherlands.
