Mountaincross Adventure 3 happening on Feb 9 to 11 2024
Filipinos love adventure riding. In fact, adventure bikes continue to be the best-selling big bikes in the Philippines from both European and Japanese motorcycle brands.
In the spirit of pure adventure, FJMOTO brings back the ultimate adventure challenge of a lifetime this coming February 2024: the FJMOTO Mountaincross Adventure 3 (FJMMA3).
Now on its 3rd year, participants will be riding around the hardest rideable parts of the Cordilleras through Nueva Vizcaya, Abra, Cagayan Valley, Apayao, Kalinga, Isabela, Ilocos Norte and Ilocos Sur.
How to join
The FJMMA3 is open to adventure bikes with at least 400cc displacement. This is also a team event only – meaning that participants must form a team of at least 3 riders in order to join.
Participants will be given 3 days and 2 nights to accomplish the route that will be given by the organizers through coordinates, so it is vital to be knowledgeable on how to use a GPS.
Just like the 2023 edition of the FJMMA, participants will need to be self-sufficient and must also bring their own camping gear, food, tools and first aid kit. The route will be composed of approximately 80% pavement while 20% will be off-road. The full event mechanics can be found here.
As mentioned above, the FJMOTO Mountaincross Adventure is a 3-day riding challenge like no other in the Philippine adventure bike scene. With the help of The Long Riders (TLR) – an adventure riding group who loves exploring the mountains – the route will take participants deep into the Cordilleras and will pass by the Ancestral Lands of the Indigenous Peoples.
There will be no event marshals at most of the checkpoints, no police or other riding clubs who would point participants to the road that would lead to the next checkpoint. No spoon-feeding whatsoever as participants will only have the coordinates of the next destination which will be given after completing the last checkpoint.
For the benefit of the Gubang Tribe
It’s incredible to see the growth FJMMA. From 88 participants in the first Mountaincross in 2022, it jumped to 160 participants in its 2023 edition and has steadily gained traction among hardcore adventure riding enthusiasts.
As with the 2022 and 2023 FJMMA editions, the funds raised will be used to help improve the lives of a beneficiary tribal community. For the 2024 edition, the proceeds will be used for the construction of the Gubang Tribe Cultural Hub and Research Center in Bangilo District, Malibcong, Abra.
