Taste of Dakar 2020

Join AltRider for an epic ride in the desert April 16-19th, 2020!

TASTE OF DAKAR

This year's Taste of Dakar will feature brand new routes! From sand dunes to stretches of cracked sandbeds, dirt trails winding around valleys and everything in between -- the desert offers unique riding opportunities for ADV enthusiasts. Join us for an epic weekend adventure for the annual Taste of Dakar in Gold Point, Nevada on April 16-19th. This gripping adventure includes GPS-led routes, 5 square meals and snacks for the weekend, adult beverages, and nightly entertainment.

What’s New?

  • Extra Day of Riding! Drop in Thursday afternoon or evening to get settled in Gold Point, and be ready to ride first thing Friday morning! Registration will open at 5:00 PM Thursday for the earlybirds, and we will have a cold beer waiting for you after you arrive. Can’t make it Thursday? No problem! Drop in when you can, our event team will be onsite to get you signed in and set up all day Friday and Saturday.
  • New Routes! We’ve sent our pro scouting team out to pre-run and reclassify all of the routes for ToD 2020! Check out our pre-running blog post for the blow-by-blow account of what to expect on the trail with us this year. (Coming Soon!)
  • FOOD! Yes, Walt will be handling our breakfasts, and if you’re signed up for one of the clinics, your lunch is in Gold Point, however. We are bringing in a catered dinner for Friday and Saturday nights! 
  • Open Schedule! We are leaving the routes up to you- We’ll supply you with a map and GPX files, you choose your level of adventure! Pick the Scenic Route to Titus Canyon, or tackle the Intermediate route to the International Car Forest.. On any day you wish! This way no one misses out if they opt into training, or arrive later in the event. 
  • 2 Days of Clinics! Rawhyde is offering two levels of riding clinics, on both Friday and Saturday. Plenty of space in the classes to get the one-on-one experience, with tons of time left in the weekend for riding! 

The Taste of Dakar registration includes:

  • 3 nights of camping at the Gold Point Ghost Town
  • Epic GPS led routes for every skill level in the beautiful off road routes near Death Valley
  • 5 delicious catered meals
  • Beer and adult beverages
  • Exclusive AltRider Taste of Dakar t-shirt
  • Exciting prize giveaways from event sponsors

Training with Rawhyde Adventures: 

We are thrilled to be partnering with RawHyde Adventure Training for our Clinics at Taste of Dakar! RawHyde is one of the only BMW certified training centers in the US.  We will be offering two levels of clinics on-site during our event:

Our Intro Training Clinic (LVL 1) will include skill building exercises such as: Basic throttle and clutch techniques, proper braking and slide control – both front and rear, turn initiation and body position for turning, and basic turning techniques. We will break for lunch and follow up the clinic with a guided trail ride, aiming to put those newly learned skills to use.

Our Intermediate Training Clinic (LVL 2) will build on the basics, polishing your existing skills with some “refresher” exercises to include turns, figure 8’s, hard braking and advanced clutch control. We will also cover things like: Skid turns… Lock up the rear wheel then initiate a turn with the wheel locked, as well as sand basics and riding over obstacles. A short break for lunch and we will end the day with a guided trail ride on one of the intermediate GPS Routes, where you can build on your newly learned skills. 

Cancellation: 

Full refunds will be offered up to 4 weeks before the event. 50% refund will be offered up to 2 weeks before the event. After that window, we will not be allowing any refunds.

    Fabulous, well organized adventure

    Just a quick note, I attended the 2015 Taste of Dakar and had an amazing time. There were rides for each and every skill level and they seemed to match their descriptions. I opted to enjoy myself and took the beginner ride and it had just the right amount of adventure mixed with new and different dessert/mountain scenery. I'll definitely be joining AltRider next year.

    Great school and ride!

    I attended the school Friday and the rides Saturday and had the time of my life, learning and experiencing a lot and meeting great people. I will definitely be there next year!

    Great Event!!!

    Just got back from the ToD and wanted to say thanks for putting on a great event. The facility at Wine Ridge was great, the food AltRider provided was top notch, and the routes I rode were awesome. Made some new friends that I'll be looking for when I return next year...
