Motolombia owner and lead guide Mike Thomsen has been confirmed to participate in the Race to Dakar – Intercontinental Rally in January and February 2015.
Mike is fulfilling a life long dream of riding the iconic route through the Sahara desert from Spain to Senegal as part of the Intercontinental Rally with a last stage on the beaches into Dakar.
This is a huge undertaking as its Mike’s first real Rally and not only a strict diet and training program has been set up, but preparations for the making of the Rally bike are in progress, a KTM Enduro 690 R and the whole adventure will be documented on the web blog www.TeamMotolombia.com for anyone interested in following the preparations and the race.

We love meeting new and old customer at these events and would be happy to learn about other good motorcycle travel and adventure events around the world. We do both presentations and official stands at rallies to promote our tours in Colombia, but can also show up at dealerships and clubs to tell about our tours.
This year we have already been attending events in Australia, Sweden, Denmark, USA, Spain and of course Colombia.
On June 12-13, 2014 Motolombia participated in the Adventure Days Off-road event in Sweden. Motolombia owner Mike Thomsen made 2 presentations in front of an enthusiastic crowd about riding in South America.
