RAID MINES

RAID TRANSPIRITA 2021

2 - 3 OCTOBER

MINES RAID - Mars Edition, will be held on January 27 and 28 inRIOTINTO MINES, Huelva with the unconditional support of del Hon. City hall de Minas de Riotinto. They have given us logistical and financial support, for which we are very grateful.

OurOfficial sponsoris the KTM Seville DealerTRT MOTORCYCLE TEAM, who provides all the logistics of the test. We appreciate all your support, the contribution of material: tents, mechanics, supplies, 4x4 truck and the transfer of motorcycles for exploration. There will be an official presentation in Seville, at the dealership itself, the date of which will be published soon.

MINES RAID is a NON-COMPETITIVE orienteering route. There is no time classification, for that you must look for federated tests or amateur rallies. Therefore, we ask the utmost respect for the rest of the participants who come to enjoy a route specially designed to enjoy nature, orienteering and riding the off-road motorcycle. If you do not agree with this concept, you can request your return before the indicated period.

The categories in which you can participate are 2:

-GPS/ENDURO.Intended for enduro motorcycles up to 530 cc. This category will have interspersed in the route, some enduro areas at different points of the track.

-GPS/TRAIL.For trail and maxitrail motorcycles with some technical areas.

-GPS/MAXITRAIL. Basically it will be the TRAIL route but without the more technical options.

- ROADBOOK (enduro and trail bikes). A roadbook edited by LYNDON POSKITT RACING and marked by Frederik Ghijselinck and Federico Gómez.

-RAID.A roadbook specially prepared to experience a rally simulation with the RALLYCOMP satellite system. Validation of waypoints, hidden waypoints, oblics, and all the elements that are included in a rally/raid.

In this 1st edition we chose the spectacular area of the MINING REGION of Huelva, a paradise for off-road motorcycles. 

Thelogistics basewill be located in theMINAS DE RIOTINTO MUNICIPAL SPORTS CENTER. The night from Friday to Saturday the motorcycles can stay in the pavilion.


The arrival time limit will have a wide margin and will be the same for all categories, since it is in no way a competitive test. Regularity, perseverance and navigation skills will be your tactics to complete the tour and enjoy the landscapes that you will travel. The broom car will mark the times, which will have a lot of margin, since the only objective is that the night does not catch you in the field. 

If you are out of time at any of the checkpoints, you will be off the route and without assistance, therefore you must return to the PADDOCK.

You must attend the general briefing, which will take place at 7:30 in the morning on Saturday the 29th, to be aware of all the latest information and regulations.Not attending does not exclude you from compliance with the participation rules of the regulation.

The teams will be formed, in the GPS category, by a minimum of 2 pilots and a maximum of 3. The ROADBOOK category pilots will have to participate individually, which does not exclude that they can be grouped during the route (maximum 4 pilots).

To avoid crowds at the  exit, each participant will receive an email indicating their departure time. This schedule can be modified according to the criteria of the organization, therefore last-minute instructions may be given in the briefing that modify the departure time or any other aspect not contemplated in the published regulations.

Those people who intend to do the route illegally will be exposed to controls by the organization and even by Seprona at points where authorization is required to circulate. Although the field belongs to everyone, in this event there are many hours of work for the organization, with volunteers who participate selflessly so that everything goes perfectly. So,It will be ESSENTIAL that you wear the MINAS RAID number on the front of your motorcycle.

Do not forget to go well equipped, it is a very isolated area and it will probably be cold. Bring your raincoat, thermal clothing, camelback, and even a thermal blanket.

There is health care that will treat you in the event of an accident and you will be transferred to the road where a medicalized ambulance will be waiting.

En route there will be several 0 motorcycles opening and closing the route, one of them is a mechanic, but you must be autonomous for common breakdowns on the route. Waiting for assistance can mean hours of waiting, keep in mind that priority must be given in case of several simultaneous INCIDENTS.

At an INTERMEDIATE POINT of the route you will find the TRT assistance and provisioning tent, where you will have basic mechanical assistance and energy bars, fruit, water or isotonic drinks. It will also have spare material at special prices for the participants and free labor, but it will depend on the degree of complexity of your fault, whether or not it is feasible to repair your motorcycle on site.

The speed limits will be clearly established and exceeding them will AUTOMATICALLY mean exclusion from the route. The beacon records and instantly uploads the data to the server, so the organization will have real-time knowledge.

The previous Friday, during the verifications, an area for shop stands and everything related to the motorcycle world will be set up in the paddock. Interested companies or organizers should contact the organization atinfo@fosiltrips.com.

GPS CATEGORY

Each participant must bring a GPS or phone with specific software. The recording of the route will be recorded in the beacon.
