Responsible for the international rally “Silk Way” Vladimir Chagin said that in 2024 it is possible to trace the course of the race through China, Mongolia or Kazakhstan.
The Silk Way Rally-2023 will be held from July 5 to July 15 on the Kazan-Moscow route. The total race distance will be 5,230 kilometers, including 2,350 kilometers of high-speed special stages. The last time the Silk Road passed through the territory of other countries was in 2019.
– Why is there no marathon stage?
– The course of the race is linear, quite long. We only have one special of rings, it’s convenient to do a marathon when there are more rings of this type. And we decided to save our participants to go to Red Square in Moscow. Marathons will be back next year.
– When China returns to the racing calendar, will Chinese riders start?
— China attracts us and the participants in the race. Previously, the race was held in five countries. But today the covid situation is not quite stable. From the next edition we will consider participation by territory in China, Mongolia, Kazakhstan. Chinese runners plan to participate in the race.
— Should we wait for the stars of the world rally raid?
— We understand the foreign policy conditions in which we live today. There are many who want to, but there are circumstances that do not allow them to participate. We all want everything to be back to normal as soon as possible and everything to be as before, ”reports the correspondent according to Chagin’s words.
