Roadbook Experience

OffRoad Portugal - Days

2 Nights
2 Days
350 Kms
2 Riding days


Our first Roadbook events began in 2019 with an edition of TransAlenTTejo that we called TransAlenTTejo Rally.

In the following years we started a series of events under the name Roadbook Experience, held in 2 stages (Saturday and Sunday) with a length of approximately 350 km, with Roadbook navigation.

We organized one event in 2020, two events in 2021 and three events in 2022, (Roadbook Experience), with the precious collaboration of Luís Lourenço, to whom we contracted the preparation of the roadbooks.


In 2023 we joined forces with R3 - Roadbook Rally Raid in organizing the R3 Original, and for this reason, the Roadbook Experience was "parked"...


In 2024 we will resume ROADBOOK EXPERIENCE, with the novelty of having OFF-ROAD events and ON-ROAD events.



:: May, 10th - 12th             :: OFF-ROAD  :: Vila Nova de Santo André

:: June, 21st - 23rd            :: ON-ROAD   :: Location to be announced, (Municipality) - date to be confirmed

:: September, 13th - 15th  :: OFF-ROAD  :: Estremoz


The Concept

All ROADBOOK EXPERIENCE0/0 events will be non-competitive events, without timed sections, with Roadbook navigation.

The events last 2 days (Saturday and Sunday), normally with approx 200 km in the 1st stage and 150 km in the 2nd stage.

The regulations will be completely identical to those of the old hobby class, with penalties for navigation errors, speeding, failure to comply with stops, route not completed, etc. (to be made available soon).

Monitoring of participants is ensured in real time through a transponder on each bike. Data processing and summary of penalties will be made available on an App dedicated to the event.

Roadbooks are available on roll, in notebooks or in digital format (via the RDS distribution platform) - No PDF will be delivered to participants.

At each stage there will be different types of Waypoints that participants will have to validate following the instructions in the Roadbook.

Whenever a participant does not validate a Waypoint, they incur on a penalty.
