Rally Colombres

 

Colombres Rally

 

It is an unmissable event on the classic motorcycle calendar and acclaimed internationally in several magazines as one of the best classic motorcycle rallies in Europe, the next Colombres Rally will take place from 4th to 11th October, 2020.

Only bikes registered before 1988 participate in the event.

Le lieu d'accueil sera comme toujours l'ancienne maison de tourisme de Colombres; les participants y formaliseront l'inscription, récupéreront le matériel et le distribueront aux différents hôtels.

Daily routes are scheduled for 7 days. They reach between 75 and 155 miles, and are run through some of the most beautiful landscapes of northern Spain and the highest mountains of PICOS DE EUROPA; all routes have a generous and delicious snack that will allow participants to continue enjoying themselves without worrying about anything else than riding a motorcycle. In addition, the organization provides an assistance van in order to pick up or remove the bikes in case of failure during the route.

On Friday 9th October, the famous 300 miles route will be held, in which the intrepid participants will ride 300 millas through the most demanding ports of Picos de Europa, along this route three roadblocks will be set up without knowing their location. This is a challenge only for real road racers, and former riders such as Mr. Cesar Gracia Samper (the former Spanish 125cc champion in 1959 and runner-up in Europe in 250cc) never miss it. For the remaining participants, a "lighter" version of the 300-miles route will be organized, with fewer miles, but keeping the beauty of the route.

During the weekend (10th and 11th October) all classic motorbikes lovers and supporters will be able to enjoy from 10.00 am. to 8.00 pm the "Classic Motorcycle Exhibition and Autojumble" which will be held in the Colombres sports centre; a good opportunity to find everything you need for your mounts, as well as all kind of articles related to motorbikes. Moreover, there will be a nice indoor exhibition of classic motorcycles that we recommend you to see.

On Saturday 10th October will take place the "Subida Bustio-Colombres 12+1" where riders and mounts will delight the public; every year we have the participation of a guest of honour, the last one was Mr. Carlos Cardus, ex official rider of the Repsol-Honda team and sub champion of the world in the category of 250 cc in 1990, champion of Spain of 250 cc in 1982 and 1983 and champion of Europe in 1983. Previous years also had the participation of the legendary British Ducati rider Mr. Paul Smart who, in addition to riding a Ducati, rode with us during the week in the Classic Motorcycle Rally.

On Sunday 11th October will take place the classic Motocross, a show in which we can see riders of yesteryear riding on their Bultacos, Ossas, Montesas, Puch ... in addition to a whole cast of ex-riders as Mr. Jose Angel Mendivil (3 times champion of Spain and 3 times runner), Mr. Jesus Saiz (1 time champion of Spain and runner), Mr. Jose Maria Saiz "Titin"...

As topped off this event, on Sunday we will devote an activity to the new generations with the dispute of the "Toy motorcycle race" for boys and girls where the future riders will delight the public that jellies their evolutions with great fervor, a real show in which not only the little ones but also the older ones will enjoy.

All this is just a small incentive of what the Rally de Colombres is; if you really want to feel and live the "Spirit of Colombres" you have no other choice but to sign up... we are waiting for you!
