This is difficult tour for experienced riders in offroad. We didn’t visited all the paces wa want to take you so it will be real adventure also for us. Probably we will not reach all the goals. We hope we will be able to cross Kegety pass and maybe we will reach Kul Su lake, but we don’t believe to make a loop from Barskoon to Inylchek on A364. We know this road exist only on maps. But we will try! We will use only light bikes, no support car. It will be snow, wet, we will use ropes and will have to help each other.
