Motorcycles – these vehicles have always been associated with freedom of movement, brutality and insane speed, so many still gravitate towards them. Interestingly, men do not always become motor owners. Many of the fairer sex are also happy to give themselves up to this dangerous but attractive hobby. By the way, special biggest bike rallies are held annually for such “motorcycle freaks”, which is impossible to miss if you consider yourself a real connoisseur of two-wheeled powerful transport.
What is the biggest motorcycle rally?
The biggest biker rally should not be confused with races, but it is also not just a tourist rally. Rather, it is something in between, between a friendly meeting of interests and a demonstration of the strength of his two-wheeled “horse”.
All participants must pre-register in order to complete the track on motorcycles. In this case, the race of the winners, as such, may not be, as well as the prize. The very essence of the collective arrival is important here. If the championship is somehow established and rewarded, then this can happen not only in terms of the speed of overcoming, but also according to other criteria.
Examples of major rallies in the world
Sturgis is the largest motorcycle rallies held in America in the Black Hill Mountains and has a fairly long history – more than 70 years. Every time, winners in various nominations are awarded here, for example, the most reckless motorcyclist. To do this, within the big motorcycle rallies, it is suggested to perform stunts. Naturally, a simple amateur cannot participate in such promotions. He needs sports and specialized training. These are found all over the world and every year they come to the States to measure their strength. By the way, the first Sturgis motorcycle rally gathered only two dozen people, and the first meeting in the new millennium (2000) gathered more than half a million.
Denmark does not lag behind and also has a similar tradition – to collect motorcyclists every year since 1934. One meeting brings together 200 or more fans of extreme motorcycle racing. Here the task is always the same – overcoming the Skagen – Copenhagen route. It is about 700 km along a wide highway. However, no one limits the participants in choosing a route and they can always cheat, the main thing is to know where to go. The victory is won not only by the fastest, but also by the smartest motorcyclist, who can timely calculate the length of the path and the speed of the motorcycle, for a certain type of road surface.
Well, one more motorcycle rally, which, for sure, everyone has heard about at least once in his life – Dakar. Here the choice of transport is much wider. Biggest motorcycle rallies bring together motorcycle, jeep and even heavy truck drivers. A large-scale event is taking place on a grand scale, because people from all over the world come to it. The route for passing is difficult and long – more than 10 thousand km. It affects many parts of the European and African continents. Surprisingly, there are very few professionals here – about 1/5 of the total number of registered participants. Often, the championship is earned practically by amateur amateurs. As for the largest motorcycle rally, there are always a lot of French people here. Moreover, they manage to demonstrate perfect results, taking away the winner’s insignia in 19 out of 29 races.
