BACK COUNTRY DISCOVERY ROUTES ANNOUNCES KTM 1090 WINNER

We would like to thank everyone who has entered into the BDR KTM1090R Drawing!  Over 2,000 people participated, helping raise over $130,000 for the BDR causes.

The winner of the Ultimate  Adventure Package was chosen on Facebook Live yesterday.  

We are happy to announce that Michael Tune of Fayetteville, AR is the winner of this Ultimate Adventure Package.  Michael has ridden both COBDR and UTBDR twice, and last year rode the MABDR. He was a BDR fan and supporter prior to entering into the drawing two weeks ago. Michael takes home a well deserved prize!

Congratulations to Michael, and huge thanks to the BDR community for making this the most successful fundraising campaign in the BDR history!  

PLANNING FOR THE FUTURE

At the upcoming BDR SoCal Adventure Fundraiser Ride in Borrego Springs, CA on March 28-31, we will discuss our plans for funding Access, Preservation, and Safety programs and initiatives to be delivered by BDR and our partner organizations, as well as preview new BDR routes currently in development.  We will provide more information and a report to the community following the Fundraiser Ride.
