Antal Verschuuren is infected with the rally virus and participates in as many rallies a year as possible. A good position does not interest him one bit, finishing and enjoying the rally is what it’s all about for him. The Eastern Europe Rally is one of his favourites, ‘Nowhere else you get that much value for your money’, is his opinion.

Cees Siemons and Frans Daris are besides multiple NC enduro champion, also a member of the Brabo Team. They ride also often abroad. Their opinion about Leppink Adventure ‘Seldom we rode this fantastic’ says enough.

Erik Posthumus is an experienced EC enduro and 6-days rider. He states the Alentejo routes are EC-material.
The ‘Alentejo’ is a fantastic 6-day rally in a true enduro paradise of southern Portugal! The beauty of this routes, in this rough landscape, is that they are intensive and challenging for more experienced pilots, but also attainable for true dirt lovers. The rally is well organized and the atmosphere is great. At the daily specials the more competitive participants can really go for it and for the amateur it’s just enjoyment to the max. I rode with a Tripy and think the routes are very well registered, which ensures a fantastic days of riding and enjoying the nice tracks and surroundings. The adventures you have during the day, the beautiful weather combined with nice meals in the evening are a guarantee for an amazing experience which you soon long for once you’re back in the Netherlands. A great adventure and truly recommended!

Ronald, Gerbert and Gerben are the mechanics of the Maxxis Super-B Dakar team and spent quite some hours at a.o. the quad of Husseini, believe it or not, the gentlemen got infected by the rally virus at Leppink Adventure and still enjoy the memories of the Achterhoekse OER KEARLS. The EER has also helped Gerben a great deal with finishing Dakar with a Honda motorcycle.

Dutch team Dakar ! joint the EER and had a blast. ‘Truly unbelievable how this rally is put together. Besides some tough navigation, you get to ride much more technical than Dakar, this is so great and so much more fantastic than le Dakar’ was mentioned quite often!

Martin van den Brink always sets the bar high in Dakar with his beautiful Mammoet truck.
‘But with Leppink Adventure during the EER you enjoy and learn how to navigate as well!’ he smiles.

Alex van Ginkel thinks le Dakar was a great adventure, but the EER is more difficult to navigate and has not such long connecting routes, which makes the EER an even greater adventure. Therefore Alex will love to participate again in the 2013 edition of the EER.

Pascal de Baar has finished many Dakars with his truck, but is also a real motorcycle man. He really loved the Alentejo Rally and therefore also participated the Eastern Europe Rally edition 2013 together with his sponsors. His opinion about the EER: ‘Dakar has 2 great things, the pre prologue and the finish, but during the EER all days are full of fun, it is such a great rally!’

At our events it doesn’t matter who or what you are, here the more experienced Antal talks to Geert during the Alentejo Rally about his experiences in the rally sports. Both of them are 100% enthusiastic but have totally different ambitions.

Geert Mulder on the other hand, loves the competition in the NC enduro’s and got the idea by watching the 2011 edition of Dakar, ‘that’s what I want to do’. Geert calls me on the phone: ‘Gerjan, I’m gonna visit you because I want to ride le Dakar. After the EER rally weekend, Touareg Rally, Alentejo Rally and some desert stages this heroe participated in the 2012 edition of Dakar.

Besides Gerard Jimmink, Richard de Groot may be the most recommendable Dakar participant. Finishing Dakar 5 times in the boxes classification, is a great achievement. Richard owes the opinion that Leppink Adventure Rallies helped him prepare for the more difficult Dakar editions. He is also a member of the Funduro Team, which learned the rally sports with us and always enjoys to the fullest. Because of the team members’ enthusiasm, The Funduro Team is partly the founder of the Alentejo Rally and of course the Funduro Raid in Spain.

The 3 headed Quad team from Belgium is called: the Mud Bears.
These are great guys, full with humour they’ve enjoyed the Eastern Europe Rally. Their comments: ‘Gerjan we have rode many rallies, but this is unique. The EER is a great event, Libya was our number 1 but the EER is more beautiful, full with diversity and challenges and that goes together with a perfect organisation!’

Gerben Vruggink is door de Oost Europa Rally besmet geraakt met het rallyvirus. ‘Wat een geweldig evenement is de OER toch, een echte rally waar ik het navigeren en het rallyrijden geleerd hebt. De OER heeft mij zeker enorm geholpen om Le Dakar uit te rijden. 42ste word je niet zomaar even in de Dakar’.

We all know Daniel Willemsen, here you see him practising navigating together with Ronald ter Beek during the Alentejo Rally. They participate as a team at the 2012 edition of Dakar. Daniel thinks the Alentejo is indescribable great! Also they have taken care of the footage for the Alentejo Rally promotion movie.

 Evert Kroon en Teus visser trainen altijd in de Alentejo provincie. Voor ons is het een groot compliment, dat zij tijdens onze rally de provincie pas echt ontdekt hebben. ‘Nog nooit zo mooi gereden’, was het commentaar van Teus Viss

Ruud Baauw, Jan van Heugten, Wouter van Beek en Ruud van Opstal zijn zomaar wat rallyliefhebbers die allen de mening zijn toegedaan dat het volop genieten is bij Leppink Adventure. Wel jammer dat Wouter dit jaar niet net zoals vorig jaar start in Dakar.

Jeroen van Daele rides more rallies a year and can be seen as an experienced rally rider. Besides the Eastern Europe Rally he was also surprised about the Alentejo Rally. Down below his report:
“Last week I have participated in the Alentejo Rally. I like to share my experiences with you. This rally is a true enduro rally with all ingredients: great full rally days with beautiful fast tracks, (almost) impossible climbs, heavy down hill descents, stony paths, river beds, blow sand and even a part of beach.

The tests, all around 50 Kilometres, were sometimes hard to navigate by road book which made it exiting and sometimes exhausting. To be honest, I had to recover a little bit after the trails. It gets easier if you ride by track or Tripy. But most of all: what a fantastic trails through the Alentejo area with African Savanna, the rough Atlantic coast and the hills and mountains of the eucalyptus forests in the Algarve. Partly old Dakar trails.

The organisation by Gerjan is perfect. Everything has been taken care of: no daily changes at the road book, all hotels well arranged, tasteful food and a great atmosphere. Actually, this rally could be best compared with the Alto Turia, but more divers and difficult, but also more beautiful and spectacular. It would be great if we have more riders at the start next year, because the organisation could handle that easily. I for sure will be there!!
