10-18 October 2020 – 1st Edition


Birth of HAT MASTER BALKANS, the Academy of Adventurism signed HAT, an event that takes the world of HAT out of national borders and launches the MASTER CHALLENGE, a new participation formula that, maintaining the spirit of tourism, adds moments of challenge for the participants.

A journey through beautiful and unexplored places that, in mid-October, will bring 50 drivers, by invitation only, from Trieste to Tirana, to test their best driving and navigation skills. A rather difficult circuit reserved for experienced bikers looking for new horizons, new experiences and new limits.

Each rider will be able to take part in the new Master Challenge formula, a strictly personal challenge to the course and its traps, with no general or particular ranking, where the qualities of perseverance in driving and precision in navigation will be rewarded.

A new event in the panorama of adventure tourism, where the difficulties will not be on the type of tracks, on mostly smooth and moderately easy roads, but where it will be necessary above all to show endurance and respect for the course over particularly long distances.

An unmissable event for true lovers of the discipline.

The best drivers will get the MASTER OF ADVENTOURING.
