The event takes place every year and attracts competitors from more than 52 + nations. The competition is spread over five days, the first being the In-city Prolog. The four Offroad race days take place on enduro trails in the regions around Sibiu and Southern Carpathian Mountains.

The event is a round of the F.I.M hard enduro World championship Series.

The hard enduro rallye

Organizer Martin Freinademetz had the idea for a hard enduro rallye in the Transilvania region after he visited the Carpathian Mountains that surround the historic city of Sibiu.

The Red Bull Romaniacs hard enduro rallye is organized under the patronage of the Romanian National Tourism Authority.

Prolog

The Prolog of Red Bull Romaniacs hard enduro rallye[1] is held on the "Bulevardul Coposu", the main street in the city centre of Sibiu and moves to the nearby mountains and forests where the competitors have to prove their endurance and riding skills. A different Prolog course and Offroad race tracks are created every year.

Offroad tracks

The tracks crosses mountain areas, rocky ground, hills and valleys; tarmac is avoided as much as possible. The length varies between 100 km and 180 km each day depending on the class that the competitor enters.[2] The main challenges are the technical parts, which lead through wooded areas, where competitors are challenged with natural terrain obstacles, they traverse over trees, rocks, mud, and mountains.[2] Petrol fuel stops, or tank stops, are placed at intervals of approximately 70 km, where contestants refuel their motorcycles and have the opportunity to refresh themselves.

The track is marked with banners, signs and coloured markings, and is loaded onto a GPS in order to guarantee safety. There are also specially designed spectator points.
