2009 Trans Americas Challenge began July 26th
The GlobeBusters Trans Americas 2009 expedition started on July 16, 2009 from Anchorage Alaska. A record breaking 30 bikes will be taking part in the various stages of this year’s five month adventure.
The first week on the trip is one of the hardest, with long days and the infamous Haul Road (Dalton Highway) ahead to Prudhoe Bay. It’s not a road to be taken lightly, every year, many riders struggle to make it to the furthest point north without a slip. At Prudhoe Bay, the group will watch the midnight sun, take a skinny dip in the Arctic Ocean, before turning south for 19 weeks and 22,000 miles of adventure.
Spirits are high – many riders booked to do the trip two years ago and find it hard to believe that they are finally at the start line in Anchorage.
For GlobeBusters, this is the biggest expedition yet and for the third time, Kevin Sanders will lead a group of riders on this epic journey. "Alaska is one of the last frontiers of adventure motorcycling and riding up to Prudhoe Bay is the only true way to say that you’ve ridden the Trans Americas. For our riders, reaching Prudhoe Bay is their first big goal and it’s my job to prepare them so that the very best chance of getting there!"
GlobeBusters is the only overland adventure company to have successfully led riders on the Trans Americas route and as Sanders says, "it gives us a wealth of accumulated knowledge and expertise to ensure that riders get the very best experience."
