After consultation with the incoming riders, we’ve decided to take the central route across Mongolia. From Ulan Bator that takes is across to Tsetserleg, then over to Olgi prior to exiting into Russia on the road to Novosibirsk.
The road to Tsetserleg is all tarmac, with the odd section of roadworks where it’s all dirt. After that it’s tracks and sand until we’re close to the border. When we hit the sand the tyre pressures will come down and we’ll have to take it easy – but with any luck we should be OK.
