15 POINTS TO PREPARE FOR THE 1000 DUNAS RAID 2021

In this 2020 edition there are six individual categories. The categories are CLASSICS, TRAIL, HARD TRAIL, ADVENTURE, PRO and ELITE. There is also an option to do the 1000 DUNAS by teams of three riders within the CLASSIC, TRAIL, HARD TRAIL and ADVENTURE categories.

To decide which category is the most appropriate for a rider, you should take into account the following factors: -The type of motor bike and the navigation equipment you have -navigation level -riding level; and -level of physical preparation. The solid combination of these four factors will allow you to live the 1000 DUNAS to its fullest. If you have any doubt in your choice, please contact us at competitors@1000dunas.com

This category was born for the riders who want to share and support each other during the 1000 DUNAS RAID. The teams of the TEAM RAIDERS category have the following characteristics:

-This is an option only for the CLASSICS, TRAIL, HARD TRAIL and ADVENTURE categories.

-Teams must be of three riders and can be mixed

-To score in the final classification, all riders must finish the challenge together

- It is a category where teamwork is valued

All the categories are made with ROADBOOK, except for the CLASSIC and TRAIL RAIDERS categories, where the navigation system is by GPS, both individually and in teams.

In the CLASSICS and TRAIL RAIDERS categories you need: GPS, Stella pre-installation kit together with its support and the Stella.

In the HARD TRAIL, ADVENTURE, PRO and ELITE categories you need: roadbook holder, distance trip, Stella pre-installation kit together with its support and the Stella, this option is also possible for the CLASSICS category.

The Stella must be rented by each rider from the company Anube, http://www.anube.es/ . Once registered in the 1000 DUNAS RAID we would facilitate you the contact of the person in Anube in charge of this subject.
