Say, what is a privateer?
Chasseur Boom
Well, I'm glad you asked.

The first of us emerged long ago… out at sea…

Wooden ships full of salty prospectors sailed the oceans on ‘official business’…

…n’ that business was stealing enemy galleons ‘n their cargo… collecting stories ‘n glories in equal measure.

Nowadays… most Privateers have swapped their boats for bikes and their hardtack for donut handups… But their salty hearts remain the same.

If your heart’s screwed on and your head’s in the right place… then you belong with us.

A great many privateers have gone before you and a great many will follow.
Never forget, the Legends of Privateer will always be Privateers of Legend.
So, the legacy continues ad infinitum.

Answer the Call

Plant A Flag

Forget the path of least resistance. Where’s the fun in that anyway? Whether we’re talking about your bi-cycle or your life-cycle: Lumps and bumps make the whole thing more interesting. So plant that flag, puff out that chest and start pumping through those chicanes. You might find you like it.

All The Funs

Fun’s complicated… You’ll realize this once you’ve tasted every single kind like the connoisseur you deserve to be. Some of the funs may be bitter, others may be dehydrating… some might even send you to a dream like space somewhere between catastrophic low blood sugar and accidental walkabout. Whatever your experience, we 83% guarantee you’ll be a better person once you make it home.

Story vs Glory

Breaking News: Winning races feels good. But y’know what feels bad? Realizing you have no personality. But hey don’t sweat it. Why? Because with a little luck and a solid commitment to the big picture we can all win the day. And so the battle between performance and experience continues, you’ve got this soldier.

Be Like Mike

This is Mike Thompson from St Louis, Missouri. Mike got his first bike three months ago, but that didn’t stop him from entering the DK200 lottery this morning. Let’s all take a page from Mike’s book, what does it say? Page1: ‘Never let reality get in the way of your goals’. Page2: Always do what you’re doing with at least 100%. Good job mike.

So you’ve Planted A Flag. Congratulations! You got this! But now the real work begins. Months of training, visualizing and preparing your mind, body and spirit for the big day. But what about your rig? Great question. A large part of Privateer Campaigning will come down to managing a vast and nebulous constellation of gear Known Knowns, Known Unknowns and Unknown Unknowns. That’s why we created a visual guide to managing Stuff.
