The organising team behind the 74th edition of the FIM Rally has now got the keys to the area in Roskilde, Denmark and the almost 900 participants from 27 nations are on their way
Since the first FIM Rally in 1936, this major FIM classic touring event has been held in Denmark from 2002, and now it's back in Roskilde near Copenhagen.
Here the organising team is already building up what is necessary for the FIM rally, where the event is to be staged on a small part of the huge area, that also hosts the big music event -Roskilde Festival which attracts approximately 130,000 spectators.
The 74th FIM Rally is on a smaller scale, but the participants are representing the best of FIM Motorcycle touring: Friendship, interests in other cultures, helpfulness and just having a good time with good friends.
The first participants are due to arrive Monday 29th July, when they will be able to enjoy tours in the area, either by motorcycle or by rowing real Viking ships. The official reception of the countries will be in the centre of Roskilde on 31st July and after an excursion through the UNESCO site -Geopark Odsherred, the event closes with the spectacular and traditional nations parade in Roskilde City Friday 2nd August.
