We’re just like you. We’re looking for adventure. 4 people, 4 Enduros, 7 days, hundreds of kilometres from coast to coast and zero support. We’re neither professional motorcyclists nor experienced adventurers. We’re a TV chef, a newly-qualified driver, a mother of three and an ex-mountain bike professional. We’re going to leave our familiar everyday lives behind us and push ourselves to our limits.
This adventure is a lifetime dream for some of us, but for others it means sleepless nights. We couldn’t be more different, but we have a common goal: we want to ride our motorcycles from Benicassim to Bilbao, no matter what it costs. Although we can hardly wait for the day of departure, we all have contrasting feelings – anticipation, respect, doubt and even fear… but we’re also courageous and determined, and we have the irrepressible will to take it to the limit – and that’s exactly what will carry us through Spain, from Benicassim to Bilbao.
Our equipment has to be as strong as our willpower and just as durable. The daily stages will take us through the most impassable terrain, far away from workshops and civilisation. We must be able to rely 100% on our machines. That’s why we’ll be riding on Husqvarna Enduros equipped ex works with MAGURA clutch and brake systems. The rest of the equipment is manageable: 4-5 kg per person, that’s it. There’s no escort vehicle, no super-expensive special solutions or spontaneous care packages. We’ll be on our own, not knowing what the next day will bring.
In the past few weeks, friends and relatives have often asked us… “What is it that’s driving you to do this?” Of course it’s also about very personal goals, no question about it – but that’s only one aspect. We’re not individualists, we’re all team players with a bigger picture in mind, a picture that includes everyone who is brave enough to dream of challenges, adventures, journeys and projects. Our message is simple: #WHOSTOPSYOU? Just go for it! You don’t have to be a professional or have unlimited resources to pursue your dreams and achieve your goals.
We’re just like you. We’re down-to-earth, family people who do our jobs every day – and like you, we’re caught in that place between our dreams and our obligations. If we met at the pub, we’d probably get along great.
So… let us inspire you! Follow us #fromcoast2coast from Benicassim to Bilbao! Experience #WHOSTOPSYOU? – The MAGURA Experience.
