Here's another Afriquia Merzouga Rally experience!

🎙️ Amaury Baratin 🇫🇷: ''After 20 years of road-bike racing, I realized my dream with Merzouga Rally. I took few lessons to improve my skills in Moroccan dunes and in navigation, helped by Jean Brucy, an experienced rally-raid competitor. In the first special, I arrived too fast on the top of a dune and crashed, flipping over with the bike: I wasn’t concentrate on the roadbook, and the carbon tower, holding GPS, roadbook and other navigation instruments were away from the bike. It was a really bad start, and it took two hours to fix everything and restart, with the roadbook and other concurrents behind me.

I was really more attentive in the next stages, focusing on the roadbook. I took much pleasure in riding, than in navigating. I worked hardly with my Swiss army knife, and I was able to leave in the next stages and finish in the middle of the pack, living many beautiful moments and gaining great results. In summary, I lived one of my best and beautiful motorcycle experiences. I learned a lot about the bike, the navigation and is pitfalls, and a lot about what to do and not to do. I’ll come again in 2020, with the goal to participate in Dakar 2021 in Malle moto, when I’ll be ready’’.

Here's another Afriquia Merzouga Rally experience!

🎙️ Toni Vingut 🇪🇸: ''After many years racing in other disciplines, I had complete new grateful feelings at Merzouga Rally. Merzouga Rally has been for me a mixture between racing and some sort of adventure game, where knowing how to do a good chrono is not the most important thing. There are other things that take place like handling navigation, saving the machine, administrating resources, etc...

When I was racing there, in all types of terrains, I felt as if I was racing in Dakar Rally. I still haven't raced Dakar Rally yet, but when I was racing all alone in the middle of the desert in those amazing landscapes I felt as if I was participating in Dakar Rally. At Merzouga Rally I have lived many unexpected situations that will help me be more prepared for next Dakar Rally 2020, where I expect to race''.
