For 2018 the course will consist of a varied terrain, including gravel based tracks of varying degrees of difficulty mixed with some more demanding single track and complex navigation. 85% – 90% of the course will be off road.
For the Pro Rally Class there will be additional loops with more challenging terrain and tougher navigation via roadbook and a small degree of CAP navigation.
The course will be 100% rideable with no “Show stoppers” for all classes.
This is true rally bike terrain with long tracks and good navigation being key to the event. The course will have secret check points en route and these will be verified by GPS tracking so accurate navigation is vital.
The course will be set by Rui Matias, Director of Portugal Off Road and checked by Robert Hughes of RallyMoto to ensure the roadbook conforms to existing standards for the Tour of Portugal.
