Want to ride offroad with Cyril Despres? The Orange CRUSH rally is your big chance!

If you fancy a fantastic dual sport ride in early September, KTM might have just the thing.

Marc Fontaine is putting together a fun, but competitive, dual sport rally for KTM, Sept. 7-9, open for three-man teams on all motorcycle makes and models, whether you’re a novice or a seasoned pro. This rally should give you a chance for some great riding in Quebec, but you’ll also have the chance to meet Dakar rally hero Cyril Despres, who’ll be attending the event.

The event starts in Montreal’s Old Port on Day 1, running to Parent in Haute Maurice, mostly on asphalt, with special test sections along the way, then heads out to the village of Parent, with more gravel roads thrown in along the way. There will be two different routes, to keep riders of all abilities happy, and Despres will be showing his skills aboard KTM’s 450 Dakar.

Day 2’s dual sport riding will require a high level of concentration, with the day ending in La Tuque, with a special awards ceremony with food, drinks and live music for all the riders. If you still haven’t had your dual sport fill, Sunday will feature special demonstrations to prove true riding skill.
