More about the Rally
A rally raid always has the same ingredients, but they can be combined in a thousand different ways!
This is what the Merzouga Rally has been doing for almost a decade, exploring new formats and turning the screws on elite competitors while providing a springboard for newbies. The gambit paid off in 2018, with Joan Barreda winning the motorbike race after a fierce five-day battle with other Dakar stars. At the same time, the rally was an opportunity for young talents to gain experience and the S×S class to keep growing. The sharing spirit and friendly atmosphere were in tune with the values that bring competitors together in the Moroccan desert.
Already in its tenth edition, scheduled for 31 March to 5 April 2019, the Merzouga Rally continues to build its profile, improve sporting aspects and bolster safety conditions. The S×S class will continue growing, thanks in no small part to the launch of the UTV Open class in the 2019 Dakar. Crews will be able to join the other competitors in the evening lessons given by elite coaches.
