I just looked at the Participants List and 21 are already signed up.
12 of those are from USA/Canada.   :great:

This event is limited to X number of people. (I'll try to find out that number}

So if your interested, don't wait.

Ride safe, Ted

Again; Look here for more info and the Video.

The Combe Laval Road in the French Alps is one of the most spectacular in the world.  It doesn't appear that it will be included in this rally but would be well worth the effort to visit if you have some extra time before or after the rally.

I was looking for other video's in the area Mike posted and came across a trip that others made last year.
     Unlike some of the other video's we've posted, these are not all "blitz and go".

These have lots of scenery and (if you watch the differing conditions) it will give you an idea of many things that you will see/experience.
NOTE: These are pretty long so bounce around if you get bored....

On the 3rd video; pay particular attention to the narrow road's and 180* switchbacks.
Those of us that go <GRIN> will definitely test our skills on roads identical to these!!

Great Links Ted!! 177 days to go till the start! Woohoo! Does anybody have any experience riding on this road in Romania- Top Gear selected the Transfagarasan Highway the best road in the world and our group may try to ride it before the Rally as we go to visit Hungary first! Love to hear from any riders on this and any great roads (back roads) to take from Munich to Budapest on the way! Thank you!
