Pre race training on Cazorla Tour route
Thanks to Steve and Shirley for being fantastic hosts during our buildup for Dakar 2009. The mixture of terrain was excellent to say the least, from good technical riding to being able to open up the big rally bikes. If you could say a big thanks to the hotel and everyone working there as they really went out of their way to look after us and make us all welcome, even though we had taken over their car park for 5 days. Everyone made us very welcome in the area and we hope to be back down this year for more testing and riding before we cross over into Morocco. Good luck and see you later in the year All from Front Row GB

Thanks Shirley & Steve for the great riding & hospitality, Touratrails location in a working Spanish olive growing village provides a great opportunity to experience the culture. I have no doubt the the Migas fiesta will be the highlight of my entire tour of Spain, Muchas Gracias! Mike Grainger.

Training tour combo 3 day
After various UK offroad experiences, riding with Touratrail was a complete revelation. The variety of terrain and choice of trail was overwhelming, all of the time with a backdrop of awe inspiring scenery. Add to this the provision of top class equipment (bikes and gear) with professional training and guidance, and you have a recipe for a superb experience. The warmth and enthusiasm of Steve and Shirley meant a level of service way beyond any expectations. Give it a try you won't be disappointed... Dominic

Tres Picos 5 day
Steve, It was a great trip this year and the weather was perfect with about 25 degrees and sunny blue sky. Touratrail with Steve in the lead took us on a tour full of fire. We started in Quesada north of Sierra Nevada and had 5 lowely run days with varied driving, many rallies but also with technical riverbeds, forests and monster steep slopes. Day 3 wee had rally through a riverbed where speed was measured at 100 km / h Then nice to breathed out with entertainment from Jani and Marcus. After a night on the coast of Almeria brought it up in the mountains again. Barbecues and cave accommodation awaited us on Thursday and it was the super nice. The rooms were excavated from the mo untain with the highest standards, the caves hold general a temperature of 18 degrees year round. Here we must get thank to Shirley who had made beds and food for 16 of us. We had the two Englishmen who got to experience the crazy Norwegians . Well back was all one piece and lots of experiences richer. Never have we not seen such enormous olive plantations and contrasts are large with snow on the peaks of the sierra nevada and full spring at 1000 m was otherwise up to 2200m. Well blown and 850 km were covered without accidents but with lots of humor :-) When your just thanked Trond, and Per Rune for a splendid planned training camp. Us others so did join the tour was Marcus, Randulf, Bjørn, Bent, Gunne, Jani, Rolf, Hallgi Thank you and Sherley, for the wonderful days in your kingdom :-) We are now back in Norway and life again going as usual. But we will live long on the good memories that you gave us. Driving and overnight stays were in the very highest class. The nights of the caves were just absolutely lovely. Sherley did an immersive work so we could enjoy ourselves this evening. You must thank her so much for this. I will now try to write something about the trip and it would be great if you sent me a small list of the places we visited. Hope all is well with you both! Best regards Bjorn and the rest of the crazy Norwegians :-)

Team Frontrow complete their Spanish test
With scrutineering for Dakar ’09 only 3 weeks away, Front Row GB put together a short but effective four day test in Southern Spain, in order to experiment with specific aftermarket components and in particular a revised suspension setup. For the first time, the Team would be hosted by Steve Goddard and his partner Shirley, based near the foothills of the Cazorla park near Quesada. This would be an ideal location with off-road sections starting within a few hundred metres of the hotel as the team were looking to imitate the fast tracks of North Africa. Stan and Ivan started the first leg of the adventure, driving from the UK to Southern Spain in one go, with all the spares, equipment, personal gear and 6 bikes, with the rest arriving a few hours later care of Easyjet. Once at Quesada the bikes were fitted with the parts to be tested before retirement to the bar to plan the testing program! With the 690 riders swapping bikes regularly, it was obvious, the KTM690’s suspension was working exceptionally well in comparison and finally a day of success for all. Overall on the three days all bikes got an outing being tested by Stuart, Oz Dave, Ivan, Paul, Stan and Steve, with Jon providing support. The final day was a change for the rally bikes as slight rain the evening before left the initial trails heavy and tacky. The group had an full day of testing with Steve leading the way, a good mixture of terrain with river crossings, flat out fast trails, rough rocky sections and dried river beds. A short, eventful but successful test by the end and Jon is on a good recovery and improving daily. Heavy bruising of the muscle and lung was the diagnosis and all should be back to normal for further ‘sand’ testing in the near future. A special thanks to; Steve Goddard and Shirley (watch out for their trail riding company based in Spain) The garage in Quesada who got a new clutch from Nissan and installed ready for the return trip

PRESS RELEASEOFF-ROAD BIKER IN 24 HOUR RIDING CHALLENGE FOR CHARITY
Steve Goddard, director of Touratrail Ltd has like many people vowed to do his bit for charity, but after several years of postponing it, now he’s finally committed to a 2011 fund raising campaign.
In Steve’s view asking for funds and assistance should involve a challenge of some description so hence the entry into a 24 off road event. Most of us have had friends or family affected by the dreaded cancer word at some time in our lives as have Steve and his partner Shirley, so Cancer Research UK are one of Touratrail’s chosen charities. Steve has also unfortunately seen first hand the effect that Raynauds and Scleroderma can have on a family member so RSA is the other charity that will benefit from any funds raised.
Shirley has set up a just giving page under the name of Touratrail www.justgiving.com/teams/touratrail whereby funds can be donated to either or both charities depending on your preference, 100% of any money donated will go to charity.
As the pair have already found out, setting up a fundraising campaign is swallowing far more time than they ever thought possible. Added to this the logistics of travelling from Spain to the UK has restricted somewhat the amount of riding gear they could take, this is where an amazing group of commercial and private sponsors have stepped onboard. In such difficult times the support that has been so freely given has humbled the pair, however this has bolstered their enthusiasm to reach their target figure.

Another more personal way of contributing financially whilst being part of the team at the event is to email (info@touratrail.com) the name of a loved one along with a pledge, in return your chosen name will be printed onto Steve’s race shirt, of which you’ll receive a photo taken whilst in Wales at the event.

If 24 hours through the natural undulations of Welsh countryside on a motorcycle wasn’t enough of a challenge at the age of 48, it looked like a 2 month lay off from riding was going to compound the effort involved. But once again never underestimate the good nature of the great British public, this is where top class riders Stan Watt accomplished Dakar rider and Wyn Hughes multiple British Enduro Champion, have offered their valuable time to give Steve some chance of regaining some bike fitness prior to the 27th & 28th of August.

This year sees the 10th running of one of the UK’s hardest and longest Enduro events. The 24 hour race…the Beast!
Perhaps the ultimate off-road challenge in the UK. Individuals and teams of up to 4 riders pit themselves against the Mountain, the weather, and their own physical reserves for a whole night and day.
The start of the 24 hour enduro on Saturday 27th August will be a Le Mans start with groups leaving in classes – the first wave starting at 7:00 pm. Over 500 riders and up to 5,000 spectators, team and family members and other supporters are expected to descend on the mountainside course of “Walters Arena” in the upper Neath Valley over the 2011 August Bank Holiday weekend. Aside from the excellent racing, there will be a large marquee for meeting, greeting, eating, drinking plus of course briefing and the all important presentation of silverware and prize money. With stalls for food, spares, tyres and riding gear all on hand and village stores, petrol stations and pubs nearby it’s not too far from civilization either.

Many well known racers have taken part over recent years, including many British champions, other notable entrants have included the Legendary Desert Racer Cyril Despres and fellow Dakar veteran Alfie Cox. More recently comedian and all-round bike nut Ross Noble has tried his hand and has indeed said he’ll be coming again this year! Charley Boorman raced in Dawn to Dusk in preparation and training for his assault on the 2006 Dakar.

If you would like to give a donation go to www.justgiving.com/teams/touratrail or text for free to 70070 and write TOUR63 for Cancer Research or TOUR64 for RSA and then add in your donation amount in pounds i.e. TOUR64£1 or contact him at info@touratrail.comfor a more personal pledge or for further information.

Cheques can be sent to 20 Audley St, Great Yarmouth, Norfolk, NR30 1EW to payee “Dawn to Dusk Challenge”.

Trail Bike Tours editorial for TBM entitled “My Favourite Trail”
I get a great buzz when taking clients on my personal favourite route which is a sweeping anticlockwise loop to the village of Santo Cristo as it always seems to throw up something unexpected each time it’s ridden. The route is 137Km long, although variations are often made “on the fly” to add some extra K’s, in it’s standard form it’s ideal for all levels of rider. Being situated inland there is a huge diversity in terrain, in just this one day the scenery changes by the hour, starting from olive groves, to a panoramic ridge trail before dropping into a yeso valley (white clay soil), through meadow land, over mountain passes. For me the pinnacle of the day is a 4 Km section of what’s best described as a goat track which skirts a small mountain which we normally reach by late morning. The approach to the trail is almost hidden from view under a carpet of Rosemary, the first 300 metres is a steady climb that is ridden trials fashion, because amongst the herbs and grass there are numerous rocks to be carefully negotiated. The trail twists and undulates whilst gaining height as it goes over the next 1200 metres, before levelling out to a spot where we stop for photos as the view is truly spectacular. Today, as we are stopped looking over the edge we are almost bowled over by a small group of mountain deer, these animals pass us and run down the slope below us at speed. We are all amazed at how they manage to stay in control on a gradient so steep and loose that we wouldn’t even contemplate trying to walk on it. Remounted we are now traversing the slope along a gnarly section of adverse cambers, gullies and numerous turns, we are taking it easy as last winters heavy rain has gouged some deep gullies across our path. This section requires forethought in line selection as the combination of a gully snaking its way along and then crossing mid corner presents some interesting scenarios. At this point the earth takes on a deep red colour, the going is easier for the next 5 minutes, which is just as well as the view opens again into the valley ahead, a truly spectacular vista as we ride along at over 1000 metres above sea level. The trail narrows as it rounds the west side of the mountain before it descends into a series of switch backs and ledges terminating on the valley floor below. Several Km’s further on, we cross a small stream with a steep bank on the far side and as we crest the rise we have to halt as our path is blocked by a massive herd of goats, the shepherd waves, not seemingly bothered by our now pedestrian progress through his herd. Whilst waiting for the goats to disperse our attention is drawn aloft to five vultures wheeling directly over our heads, we sight these several times on our way towards lunch! Heath land and forestry make up the remainder of the morning, we park up metres from the bar and already Pablo is doing his best help us stash our riding gear whilst simultaneously tune the TV to the MotoGP for us. 111 7 April 2013
Tres Picos Tour (Translated from Norwegian motorcycle press article)
We are a "bunch of guys" 11 of us in the age from 19 to 63 years from Sandnes / Stavanger area Norway who have enduro driving as a common interest. At home we train on a couple of smaller cross courts and at a local farmer`s area where we have challenges as "rock climb" and "mud-bathing" on his property. In addition, we take some longer trips on suitable and unsuitable places in the community. Some have been running for several years and participated in competitions in Denmark and Sweden, while others have run for hobby 5-6 years. The youngest "weasels", Markus and Jani have settled among the “older” guys. They are not born with "skis" but with "wheels and tires crunched". Raised on trial bikes, “we have to exhibiting the annoying courage and steel control they have on two wheels. Oldest guy Randulf, of 63 years, has a long history as an active Moto crosser and is a well-known profile. The rest of us do not have much to brag about except that we enjoy and feel comfortable between these extremes. Some of us exercise daily with bicycling and running stairs while others just have enough with buying the weekly "sixpack". We can look back on several trips, each with their own character and challenges, joy and laughter has been central. Everyone will have fun and good fellowships are central. The trips have been to Spain, areas in Malaga,Granada and Marbella. On two of the trips we included north Morocco. The tours have been organized by various English companies. This year we were going on tour for the fifth time. We was looking for new routs/area. Trond, the organizer in charge, delegated and took action. He presented "Toura Trail" with our response "Go for it" We "kept quiet", accepted and paid. Lovely situation! No liability and full complaint rights. In April we went to Andalucía to meet "Toura Trail" which consists of STEVE GODDARD and SHIRLEY BAYFIELD. 6 April In the morning we arrived at the airport of Malaga. Imaging, great atmosphere after several hours flight. We were met by Shirley and the local bus driver. After waiting for two Brits we jumped on the minibus to Quesada. 3 hour drive from Malaga northeast of Granada. After check in at the hotel we took a closer look at the nice village including some local beer and food. In bed a bit late after a long day. After a few hours sleep we woke up to cloudy Skye’s and 10-15 deg. Perfect conditions and more than ready for this year's big happening. 5 days on 2 wheels with lots of "wonderful" dust from the Andalucía mountains, forests, rivers and olive groves. After dressing and sorting out gears plus selection of bikes we were ready. Steve as the front guide, while John from Dust Devils got the job as last man. Day 1 Total distance 149 km. Height from 464 to 1201 m We started in Quesada and drove in the direction towards the Altiplano region. The terrain was gravel roads over mountain passes with forest and we ended up on some amazing beautiful mountain plains with Sierra Nevada in the background. Lowly lunch in Estacion de Cabra. It was a hard start for frozen bodies from Norway. It was almost noon before we reached the lunch spot. Obviously a popular lunch restaurant, at least 20 asphalt bikers met us in the parking lot. Crossing the river over to Alamedilla was not possible because of high water flow and therefore we had to drive a few extra km to get around via a bridge. Then we drove through the Ermita de San Jose and into a dry riverbed. Although I struggled a bit with loose river sand / gravel before but after a few minutes warming up I got up to speed. To put it this way, it became a rally. Some run with full "throttle" over 100 km/h. A powerful experience. We passed near the town of Guadix before we arrived at the hotel at Villa de Gor after 149km in the wilderness. Great hotel near a highway that was not particularly busy this Sunday. Day 2 Total distance 196.km. Minimum height 4.m up to 1803.moh From Villa de Gor we pulled up in the national park of Sierra de Baza with excellent views of the Sierra Nevada mountain. Between these mountain ranges is a large beautiful valley and a new experience was seeing the wind mill down in the valley and not at the peaks. The terrain ahead was much gravel roads through everything from forested mountains to bush vegetation. The journey this morning ended up in the sleepy village Abla where we took a late lunch after 85km. For this night Shirley booked hotel for us close to the Mediterranean, more specifically in Roquetas de Mar. We still had some km to go when the darkness started to come. It was just to speed up in the eastern part of the Sierra Nevada through new mountain passes, dry river beds before we got down to the village Rágol. Here we got a great view and probably Europe's largest range of plastic house / greenhouse. Still there were technical challenges for some of us on steep goat paths, while others relaxed in the sun and enjoyed the view. After approaching 200 km and 10-12 hours on the bike we arrive Roquetas de Mar late this evening. Time for a good brief and chat around the table. Filling up with some food and plenty of beer. Day 3 Total distance 128.km. Minimum height 4.m maximum height 1476.m A new day and a lovely breakfast. Beautiful, so no problem to get the dirty clothes on. From Roquetas de Mar we left "plastic land" Lucky to have the guide Steve with us. We climbed up the mountain to village Felix. Passing mountain ridges with windmills, challenging narrow goat trails, forests and even over a great old Roman bridge. Lunchtime in Alhama de Almeria after 81km. Then we drove down the river Rambla. Wet, but great fun driving. Suddenly we were in the "Mini Hollywood", where many old so-called spaghetti Western movies are recorded. Nature is very similar to America's Wild West. Here we experience the spectacular mountain ridges, fear of heights is not recommended. A narrow path led us to the top of a mountain and some places not more than 1 meter wide and over a hundred meter down on each side. This is not the type of mountains we are used to. It's almost like gravel . This ride is also taped on film and it gives your stomach some butterflies eventually. This was probably the the most technical day. Steep trails over mountains and through valleys and river beds. A challenging and wonderful day. The night was booked at, Almeria / Tabernas road-racing track. The hotel is often used in connection with the training camps on the field. At the hotels in Tabernas Shirley met us with ice cold beer in frozen glass. Yum yum. Excellent drink for dust faces before shower and dinner. A particularly stylish hotel, with friendly staff and exceptionally good food. Day 4 Total distance 171 km Minimum height 478m up to 1732.m From Tabernas we took the new river beds and rocky mountain paths before we dropped back in the beautiful little village Sierro with a castle from the 12th century. Here the camel bags was filled with crystal clear spring water from the fountain in the center of the village. We were interrupted by a funeral procession where they followed one of their own to the last rest. We, the muddy highway robbers, stayed tuned. It was again a great morning with varying and challenging terrain like grass, stone-soil of the river beds all the way to Freila 153 km. From Freila we drove past the dam at the end of the lake Negratin. It had rained for two months before we arrived and now the lake was so full of water that it poured steam and splattered across the road. A little wet but we got further into a narrow river to Barranco. Off course with full speed through bamboo bush and difficulties like large rocks and muddy terrain. When we finally got out of bamboo, we drove into the grassy mountain. Very special scenery and panorama at the top. On the horizon we could see huge mountains ahead of them was a huge flat plateaus and below these plateaus were again big mountains. Have never seen anything like it. We were now close to the accommodation and the sun was on the way down. Steve had told us that we had to stay in caves and the food we had to make our self so we feared the worst. More than exhausted , full of dust and vet, no shower and so-so with food. Oh, this is not good. But not this time. Here we met Shirley with beer, wine and nice starters, she also prepared the beds. The caves were amazing. Four units with private bathroom, kitchen and four bedrooms. Whitewashed caves with historic furniture, it was incredibly special and wonderful. The fridge was filled with Spanish cerveza. Steve lit the grill, while the guys chatting on about the day's adventures. When darkness fell, the food was ready and we could enjoy delicious grilled BBQ and perfect red wine. Well some were skeptical of the Spanish blood sausages, but in the dark they truly disappeared. A special, pleasant and wonderful experience. Day 5 Total distance 118.km. Height 426m to 982.m Last Day and foggy. Breakfast this day we got in a hotel a ½ hour drive away and yes It was cold and wet in the fog, but lucky for us after breakfast the sun shine again. Steve had planned an exciting trip for our last day. It turned out that crossing the river was too dangerous. But he found an alternate route that become a challenge. A landslide blocked the road / trail. We were warned about the mud but Jani just had to try. Of course he came over. For the rest of us, it was a laugh. All was stuck and it was an hour of hard work to get the bikes over. After a bit of driving in a river to get some mud off the bikes we rally through the olive groves until we reached our lunch in Quesada at Boca Pizza. After lunch, we still had a few hours left before the evening and Steve took us on a great tour of the Castillo la Toya, the ruins of a castle. It was a great ending with challenges on grass driving on steep slopes. Time for a little nap in the grass in front of the castle with spectacular views of olive groves, Finally next was to get back to our hotel in Quesada. The round trip was completed and no serious injuries. Big laugh’s and better stories through the night of course. In summary, it was another great and memorable trip. Steve was a really nice guy and a very good guide, and our safety was in good hands. We got real value for money inc. long days. Great driving experiences, accommodation places with character and natural beauty. Shirley drove from hotel to hotel with our luggage and arranged things so we should have it as good as possible. Touratrail performed excellent! The tour is highly recommended! For every level. Steve will find suitable routes and give you a lifetime experience Bjørn Tjessem 111
