2017 KTM Adventure Rider Rally

Last month, KTM adventure-riding enthusiasts headed to the village of Crested Butte, Colo., for the three-day 2017 KTM Adventure Rider Rally.

The 14th-annual event, which is the only national festival for KTM owners and enthusiasts, featured riding with some of KTM’s top racers, including:

  • FMF KTM Factory Racing Team’s Taylor Robert
  • Eight-time AMA National Enduro Champion Mike Lafferty
  • Four-time Baja 1000 winner and Dakar competitor Quinn Cody

Besides the vendors and areas where participants can test new bikes like the 1090 Adventure R, Dakar podium-finisher and Baja 1000 Champion Jimmy Lewis also put on a riding school.

Most riders were on KTM machinery, including the 1190/1290 Adventures and EXC-Fs, though the rally doesn’t discriminate against other models.
