RIGS OF THE 2022 HURACAN CHALLENGE
Written By Myles Arbour
Kicking off our 2022 “Rigs of” series is the Huracan 300 Challenge, a grueling off-road event in Florida known for rough terrain, tough climbs, and alligator-infested river crossings. Check out our gallery of more than 50 race rigs of the 2022 Huracan 300 Challenge here, featuring bag and gear highlights for each.
Every year, we select a handful of bikepacking events and showcase the riders (and their rigs) who are participating. The list of riders is always so interesting to pick through, from the ultralight race setups of those chasing records to more casual riders who are simply in pursuit of time outside in beautiful a location.
We’re kicking off our 2022 series with an event and route put on by our friend Karlos Bernart in Florida, the Huracan 300 Challenge. The Huracan Challenge is offered in either a 330-mile “lite” version or a 360-mile route and has quite the reputation down south. The route features over 100 miles of singletrack, many remote miles of doubletrack forest roads and abandoned paths, and a few miles of pavement here and there.
There are more than 70 riders registered to participate, and with their help, we’ve collected bike and gear info for around 50 riders who are tackling the route. Scroll through and get a good look at everyone’s rig and then head over to the 2022 Huracan Challenge event page to follow along live. Find the full article here.
