10-day 'arrive & drive' Rallyraid tour

This 'Arrive & Drive' Caminos del Colono 2016 RallyRaid Tour is something special.  Ride or race at your own pace up high in the Andes to low in the Amazon of Peru.  In 1857 Austrian-German colonists sailed across the seas and walked over the Andes to found new settlements in a virgin part of the eastern mountain jungles of the Peruvian Amazon.  This RallyRaid of more than 800 kms attempts to follow the same routes used by the colonists over 160 years ago.  You will ride over highland roads, jungle trails, beaches and river crossings.

The goal is to FINISH!  Only about 40% of the colonists made it to their final destination.  The event is a test of man, machine, and will.  About the same percentage of competitors will make the finish line.


Control timing is made easy to follow and not too difficult to make the time goals.  The Liaison and Special Stages are about 40%-60%.  But completing the 819 km and 15 competitive stages is the key!

You will not ride alone.  Eight other riders will form your team, with the support of a Team Leader, two pickup trucks, four mechanics, and an English/Spanish translator assigned to the group!


You will compete in the 'Origen Chino' category where 250cc is the largest dislacement of the group. You will race either our race-prepared 250cc bikes:  SUMO Torque 250 / CROSS Triton 250.  A medal for you if you FINISH the course!

Imagine arriving in Oxapampa in the midst of the Austrian-German Heritage week!  You will be received in the main plaza by 20,000 spectators, dancing girls in traditional garb, and musical bands!  Then on to the awards celebrations laced with traditional German food and drink!
