We've been smashed with messages and emails about the hugely successful BLITZ Series, so here's a quick update and answers to the most frequently asked questions.
1. Are they on again next year?
Yes, the Barkbusters Handguards BLITZ Series has been confirmed again for 2020.
2. Can you put them on a calendar so I can book my leave?
The 2020 dates will be available on the event page by the 13th Sep 2019.
3. Do I need to have a current NAVIG8 Plan to register?
No, the BLITZ Rides are for everyone, although plan holders do receive a discount.
4. Are they only in NSW?
At this stage yes, ....we're based in NSW and we have a great mix of trails and tourist attractions that are perfectly suited to the series.
Our trail network extends throughout Australia, we've had a big request for Vic and SA, so although a complete BLITZ series may not be possible there just yet, we are looking into single events in other states.
5. I haven't used a GPS very much, I'm a bit nervous about holding up the group or even getting lost.
Don't worry about that, it's exactly why the BLITZ Series exists, if you have any questions you can contact us
6. How hard are the rides?
Everyone's idea of difficulty is different, repeated throughout the rides is leaving out the enduro type of tracks and creating big bike friendly offroad adventure touring routes.
7. Will the 2020 series be different to this years?
Not really, the format has worked and the feedback has been extraordinary, apart from some small additions to each route, the series will be mostly a mirror image.
8. Will the entry fee change?
No, entry will remain at $115 per event or $85 for NAVIG8 Subscribers.
9. Do I have to pay when I register?
