This year’s Baltic-Atlantic Gibraltar rally event was held over 16 days, as participants saw themselves compete over a 7,000 kilometre route divided into 14 stages. As the event began in Gdansk, Poland riders saw themselves through a number of countries, namely Czech Republic, Germany, Italy, and France ending their rally at the Cape Finisterre Lighthouse in Spain.

Not designed for the faint hearted the rally required riders to give it their all while showcasing their offroad skills. Serving also as a unique way to experience new countries, during their journeys riders were given the choice of resting in their own tents or hotels along the way.
