Adventure Ride Competition

From 09-12 July 2020, riders from all over the world will once again take part in the Offroad Competition of the Year with travel enduros from all brands. It’s all about skill, team spirit, accuracy and cleverness. Over two days, more than 12 riding off-road exercises will be completed – at the end, the best women and the best men will compete in a final ride on the event site for the top 3 places and thus for the coveted ARC crown of the ARC Queen and ARC King. The riding exercises are all very varied. Every participant will have fun, no matter if he is an offroad beginner, advanced or professional.

Team spirit is also in demand. All participants are divided into different teams by drawing lots before the start. These will be guided to each practice station by our experienced instructors. This allows all participants to concentrate on their riding fun, meet new people and redefine the feeling of off-road riding fun in their team. The best team will also be chosen at the award ceremony.

Many experiences for all guests and visitors. While the ARC participants ride their exercises, you as guest and visitor can experience a lot on and around the event. Our partners have an extensive program for this. Test rides, workshops, lectures, music, up to the experience for the whole family, nobody will be bored. There is also the possibility to observe individual practice stations of the ARC and to cheer on the participants. In the evening there will be travel lectures, campfire romance, music and party. The entrance is free of charge. The exact program will be announced in the near future.

Our tip: A good preparation are our ARC trainings. (German website only)

There is a women’s and a men’s ranking. On day 2 after the two days of the competition, the top 5 will make the final decision in the RIDE course on the festival grounds in front of the audience. Here we determine the best female and male rider. The award ceremony will then take place on the festival grounds.


The participants will be divided into groups by lot. These will be led by an instructor in the On/Offroad region to various special stages. At the special stages, the best possible performance (dexterity, stamina, etc.) must be achieved with the vehicle. Once the group has finished the classification, it will ride to the next special stage.
