Anyone heading to the Adventure Rider Challenge?

Who wants to join us in Castaic, California for the Adventure Rider Challenge?









Its one of the most difficult competitions in North America, with mud pits, bogs, teeter totters, suspension bridges and more. But the top three competitors will be named Team USA and sent to South Africa to compete for the second biennial BMW International GS Trophy.

This is our first year sponsoring the event, and were excited to go down and participate in the challenges Jim Hyde has cooked up for everyone. But we also want to meet up with people in the area if we can, so are you going to make it out?

Jim Hyde just shared this video with us, and I wanted to have you see it, too.

There had been some discussion about only two riders going to South Africa (the third being a journalist). It was confirmed that there are definitely three competitors AND a journalist going.

Just got off the phone with Jim, and the prizes are looking good -- and not just the top ones. There's still time to register if you've changed your mind.

Hope we'll see some of you there!

We had a great time at the Adventure Rider Challenge -- it was wonderful meeting so many good riders and good people. If you want to check out our blog post about the experience, head over to The AltRider Story to read what happened to us and see a few pictures.
