LC8 Rally Western Alps

Let’s meet the 1st week of July 2019250px-hautes-alpes-position-svg
at Camping Gran Bosco Salbertrand
Susa Valley, Piedmont, 34 km from Briançon.

In 2014, two LC8 enthusiasts decided it would be nice meeting
to meet with a bunch of other LC8 riders in an area which has a lot of gravel roads to offer. You don’t need to be an offroad crack to join in, as there are also a lot of wonderful onroad trips in this region.

About the campsite see the ACSI rating. frankreich-spezial-grandes-alpes-karte
More information is published on our Facebook page.
This is a non-commercial event, no registration fee,
just book your stay at the camping.

The area is located in the middle
of the Route des grandes Alpes.
In a 30 km range there are
dozens of legal gravel tracks.
Some gpx data here. Impressions of 2018.

Please wear appropriate protection gear
as shit happens sometimes.

As an alternative to your own tent
they got mobile homes or pods.

    Hi, planning on coming over from the UK. Is everyone staying at the campsite all week and riding out from there every day?

      Exactly, the campsite is our “basecamp”. There are already several from UK planning to come, do you’ve got facebook ?

    How experienced do you actually have to be to do this?
    Say that I just got a 990adv last month and it’s the first motorbike I ever owned… is it feasible?
    That said, the roads in the pictures look like something I have been riding before on a smaller machine…

      There are tracks for every experience level.
      I rode the Assietta with a girlfriend who drove a Suzuki GS500. So everyone with an Enduro should be able to do this. (Well, her profession was sports teacher).
      You find an overview here :

      SG means “level of difficulty”, 5 is the hardest…
