First 2021 plans
As recently announced, the 43rd edition of the Rallye Dakar, which will again be held in Saudi Arabia, will welcome the participants from January 02, 2021 onwards with 12 stages, 4,767 km of special stages and a total distance of 7,640 km - one day more than this year. Another new feature is that the focus will be less on high speeds and more on the safety, riding technique and navigation skills of the participants. Among the 321 vehicles that are expected to start, another surprise is waiting for us: it seems as if Rieju is going to send three riders to the starting line in 2021.
After eight successful years, KTM and Jonny Walker are ending their cooperation as a result of an internal restructuring - it is not yet known how things will continue on both sides in the coming year. Fabio Farioli, the KTM Factory Team Manager, commented on the decision as follows: "First of all we would like to say goodbye to Jonny with a big thank you after he was able to celebrate so many successes together with the KTM Factory team. We've had some good times over the years and equally outstanding successes. He has been a very important part of our team and was partly responsible for our continued success. Despite this fact, we are unfortunately no longer able to keep Jonny on the team. We therefore wish him all the best for the future". We remain curious if and if so, in which colors we will see Walker riding in 2021!

The next edition of the traditional SuperEnduro Riesa race should have taken place on January 9, 2021 - as recently announced, however, the race now had to be cancelled due to the ongoing pandemic. Until the very end, the organizers had hoped that they would be able to hold the event, given that it is a professional sports event, and finance it through media coverage, however by now, these plans could not be realized, leading to the short notice cancellation of the event. Nevertheless, the organizers are not losing their hope so quickly: the next date has already been set, which means that the next edition of the exciting race will probably take place on January 8, 2022. Let’s keep our fingers crossed that it will work out as planned!
Things are not only moving in the travel sector, but we are also happy to present new dates for the upcoming season to you within the German borders! As usual, we will again offer our trainings in Hof in the Westerwald as well as in Warching in Bavaria, and in each case you can choose between our enduro beginners, enduro advanced, ladies only enduro and travel enduro trainings. It pays to be fast however – else, before you know, everything might again be fully booked before you were able to secure your spot.
We hope that you're enjoying your day by riding your bike and keeping your distance. See you again soon!
