Why is Assistance a good idea ?
Totally exhausted, after a hard day’s riding, with the same again tomorrow, the last thing you want to do is start changing tyres and servicing your bike when you get into camp. But, the benefits of a good assistance team are much more wide reaching than that. The logistics of rallies can be quite daunting, especially for a first timer. Your bike needs to be built to the correct technical spec, the safety equipment needs to meet requirements, your paperwork needs to be in order, you need to understand your road book and navigation equipment, you need to carry the right tools and spares and you need back-up tyres, mousses and spares to be available when you need them and so on… Having someone with you who has all the knowledge and technical ability to help you with any of these issues is priceless and takes away the stress so you can concentrate on your riding and enjoying the event which is why you are there in the first place.
