Edelweiss MotoGP Tours Going To Brno And Sachsenring In 2014
If you’re a MotoGP fanatic with wads of cash burning a hole in your wallet and two weeks of vacation you don’t know what to do with, Edelweiss, one of the world’s leading motorcycle-tour companies, has just what you’re looking for. In 2014, Edelweiss has two grand prix tours lined up. The first is the Sachsenring Grand Prix in Germany, July 9-16, and the second is the Brno Grand Prix in the Czech Republic, August 13-20.
Part of this exclusive touring package is a 3-day paddock pass. So if you ever wanted to have a look behind the scenes and watch Valentino Rossi, Marc Marquez, or Jorge Lorenzo live at work, then this is your opportunity. Don’t miss any of the excitement of a Moto Grand Prix race at Sachsenring or Brno and get yourself treated like a VIP when enjoying the all inclusive catering at the hospitality center.
Tour prices start at $5310.00 and steadily climb depending on the type of motorcycle or accommodations you seek. Keep in mind: the price does not include the price of airfare. Each tour lasts eight days, with six days of riding. Space is limited, as Edelweiss has limited the number of participants on each tour to six. Edelweiss also rates the difficulty level of the route as intermediate, so evaluate your riding proficiency before joining.
Having done an Edelweiss MotoGP tour in the past, I can say with confidence that this trip will be one of the most memorable experiences you ever take part in on two wheels. The routes are challenging, the accommodations are top notch, and best of all, the people you meet and sights you see are spectacular.
