MOROCCO

Morocco is the perfect destination to explore the desert by motorcycle. Travel through the legendary Erg Chebbi, with its imposing dunes surrounded by wadis partly lined with palm trees, strange rocky plateaus marked by extreme weather conditions and vast deserts of stone and lost canyons: here the diversity of the desert knows no limits.

THE MOROCCO DESERT CHALLENGE

The Morocco Desert Challenge 2024 will link Agadir to Saïdia for a new “coast to coast” route of around 3000 kms. Stimulating new routes, always with the shortest possible connections, to link the Atlantic Ocean to the Mediterranean Sea. A condensed version of the best riding Morocco has to offer, in 8 adventurous days.

In the Raid category, two options are available: an easier one, on tarmac roads and easy tracks running parallel to the rally, and a slightly more demanding one, partly on the main racing line, but without the difficult dune crossings. You can switch from one to the other on a daily basis and for as far as possible, as navigation is easy to manage with a Tripy GPS. Every evening the organizers’ bivouac and our hospitality area are open to you, so you can spend time with the team and the official riders. Our goals: your safety and an unforgettable experience in a professional team atmosphere!
