A new edition of the Hellas Rally starts tomorrow. It is one of the most popular and multitudinary raid in Europe. Isaac Feliu (2016, 2017, 2018) and Carles Falcón (2018) have already participated at this spectacular rally in Greece, while it will be the first edition for Albert Martín.
The rally covers around 2.000km for many fascinating areas of the hellenic country, from high mountain areas and the sand of the beach. A raid in which navigation is a key element and combines it with technical trails, forest, big rivers and rocky areas.
Getting ready for Dakar 2022
Racing the Hellas Rally is part of the preparation of the TwinTrail Racing Team on its Road to Dakar 2022. It is a really good training for different reasons.
First of all, it is a 7day rally and, even it is only the half days of the Dakar, the riders can find in it the fatigue feeling both physically and mentally after so many days of racing.
On the other hand, the riders are competing in the Trail category. Isaac Feliu and Carles Falcon will do it with ther BMW 800GS (M6) and Albert Martín with his Husqvarna 701 Enduro (M5). It is a handicap for them, but Adventure bikes is what TwinTrail promotes. This race with the heavy bikes will help the team in their Dakar training.
Last but not least, the navigation is quite tricky at the Hellas Rally and will challenge the youngest rider of the team Albert Martín. The rider from Valls has just raced for the first time in a rally raid the week before (Andalucía Rally), so this week will be an express roadbook masterclass for him.
Joined by four amateur riders
The TwinTrail Racing Team will not be alone in Greece. Together with the team have travelled four motorbike and raid fans to race Hellas Rally. It is one of the adventures that TwinTrail Experience offers as a company for its customers.
