KTM has revealed the results of its 2022 World Adventure Week, including the total distance covered between all participants and other statistics.

The KTM World Adventure Week saw more than 90 countries featured in the list of participants. Combined, those who took part covered more than one million kilometres, which is the equivalent of a trip to the Moon, coming back to Earth, and then going just over halfway back to the Moon again. 

Additionally, those million kilometres were completed in a total time across all participants of over 16,000 hours, which is the equivalent of - ominously - 666 days. Perhaps the next KTM Adventure special edition will be called “Devil,” or “Teufel,” or “Damien.”

The highest altitude reached by any of the WAW participants was 4,796 metres, which is 1,020 metres higher than Mount Fuji, and there were an impressive 495 group rides recorded.

Furthermore, 27% of people taking part covered more than 1,000km, and each of the participants who did so were entered into a prize draw. 

From that draw, five people were picked, and will go alongside the riders who covered the most distance in the 2021 and 2022 editions of the WAW as invitees to “an all-expenses-paid riding experience that will take place at the end of November in an undisclosed location,” KTM says. More details about the prize, including the location, will be revealed “in the coming weeks,” according to KTM.

KTM will also be sending each of the riders who covered 1,000km or more across WAW a personalised award.
