What an event – – amazing weather, great riders and epic terrain. We could not have asked for a better way to kick off Orange Adventure events in NZ with the inaugural KTM New Zealand Adventure Rallye “Coast to Coast”!
80 KTM riders, plus 24 support staff, made their way across the North Island from Papamoa Beach to New Plymouth across five outstanding days at the beginning of December.
With overnight stops in Gisborne, Taupo and Taumaranui, riders were met with a variety of terrain, from sweeping metal roads, forest tracks and even untouched farmland, there was something for everyone at this event! Chris Birch and his crew put on a sensational route and unique overnight stops meant great food and plenty of laughs every night.
We want to say a massive THANK YOU to all the KTM adventure riders who attended and made this event what it was.
But as they say – a picture says a thousand words, so we are going to let the photo gallery do the talking for us. Enjoy!
