THE JOY OF RIDING A TRAIL OR ADVENTURE BIKE IN THE MOROCCAN DESERT
MOROCCO. OCTOBER 4-9, 2018
Discover over 5 days, aboard your modern or classic trail bike, the roads and tracks of Morocco. Your bike takes you back to where it all began, through incredible scenery, in the company of experienced professionals. 50% piste, 30 % road and 20% off-piste, a careful mix designed to get the very best adventure out of your bike.
On the Trail Desert Challenge there’s room for everyone: a vintage class for pre-1990 bikes, classes depending on engine size, different routes depending on your level, advice from ex-factory riders, workshops at the end of the day… a variety of options for an adventure adapted to your ability and experience, an adventure made to measure for you.
5 DAYS, 50% PISTE, 40% ROAD, 10% OFF
THE TRAIL DESERT CHALLENGE IN PARALLEL WITH THE RALLYE DU MAROC
No more paper road books but a Tripy GPS with its own battery that will allow you to follow the itinerary prepared by our reconnaissance team. It will show you, using the same type of designs as traditional road books, the route to follow, moving automatically to the next note if you are on the right track. If you get lost it will help you get back on the right route!
In addition to guiding you, the Tripy electronic road book will record where you have been and your speed, sending your exact location every 10 minutes to our race control, so that your safety can be assured.
The Rallye du Maroc, running nearby, will provide you with helicopter medical cover, while the raid’s own medical staff will be alongside you on the piste.
BUT A RESULT
The Trai Desert Challenge isn’t a race, there’s no question of a stopwatch! So no element of speed, but a range of challenges: navigation exercises, where the winner will be the one that covers the least distance, regularity tests, bike control tests and other surprises that will pepper the route. Together they will all go towards a final result, based on the total number of points obtained overall.
AN ADVENTURE WITH
‘A LA CARTE’ ASSISTANCE…
All forms of assistance are possible. You can enter your own assistance just for yourself or with a group of friends, benefit from the assistance from one of the manufacturers, from the partners of the Trai Desert Challenge (list to be published), or rely on the assistance put in place by the organisers and discover the solidarity of the ‘Motorcycle Trunk’ class.
A RAID FAITHFUL TO ITS ORIGINS DURING THE DAY, BUT WITH MODERN COMFORT AT NIGHT…
A reflection of the many facets of the desert, the Trai Desert Challenge offers you two sides. In the day it plunges you into ‘real’ Morocco, while at night it cradles you in modern comfort. The best hotels have been selected for four nights of luxury, contrasted by two VIP bivouacs under the stars, one shared with the bike competitors in the Rallye du Maroc.
All the midday lunches will be under Berber tents in typical villages, or in the middle of the desert, with local style food provided by catering professionals.
A TURNKEY EVENT
The entry fee is all inclusive, hotels, bivouacs, meals, the Tripy electronic road book, safety cover, repatriation cover, refuelling in the desert… everything is included. All you have to do is get yourself to Morocco. And we can help you get there with flights and transporting your bike, wherever you are in the world.
The concierge of the desert is open!
