@BMWMotorrad •(January 3, 2017)- The 4th annual Fundy Adventure Rally (F.A.R.) is returning to Adair’s Wilderness Lodge near Sussex, NB and the beautiful Bay of Fundy area on August 17-20, 2017. New for this year is the 2018 BMW Motorrad GS Trophy Qualifier for Canada. The three best riders of the 2017 GS Challenge East (Montreal) will join the Central (Ontario) and Rocky Mountain (Alberta) winners to form a team of nine finalists. During the final at the Fundy Adventure Rally, BMW Motorrad Canada will pick three riders to represent Canada at the 2018 BMW Motorrad International GS Trophy. It is possible that all three winners of the final come from the same region.
The main event of the rally, the A-B-C Team Ride, consists of a 500-plus kilometre GPS route through the spectacular Fundy area featuring ideal terrain for the adventure rider: varied, challenging, and scenic. Teams have added safety courtesy of Spot GPS trackers. Riders have the option of easier gravel roads or gnarlier dirt ones at each leg along the loop, the gnarlier options gaining more points. The number of points attained will determine if a team leaves with a Bronze, Silver or Gold level certificate.
As with previous years, day one will offer self-guided tours, rider training sessions, workshops, and demo rides from BMW. Day two has the addition of the first six special exercises for the BMW Motorrad GS Trophy Qualifier. The A-B-C Team and Scavenger rides kick off day 3 and are followed by a post-ride BBQ for food and tall tales.
The completion of the BMW Motorrad GS Trophy Qualifier exercises, awards banquet and prizes will be held on Sunday. Registration closes on May 30th.
