AltRider’s Taste of Dakar

AltRider's Taste of DakarCompeting in the Dakar will, for most of us, remain a dream for another life. Racing the Dakar requires not only lots of skill and support, but also tens of thousands of dollars and an approved application from the mysterious and secretive selection committee in Paris. Thankfully, though the actual Dakar may be out of reach, AltRider’s three-day Taste of Dakar only requires a free weekend and $269.

The event takes place February 22-24 just outside of Death Valley in Nevada and will entail plenty of adventure riding through stark desert landscapes rife with sand dunes. Participants will camp in the desert, enjoy catered meals and adult beverages, and get to learn from Dakar veteran Jimmy Lewis.
