6-9 days in length
Mandatory bivouacs, maybe in the middle of nowhere
3-5 race hours, 2-3 hour liaisons
Terrain....use distance to make it diabolical not enduro terrain
Terrain suitable for rally bikes, not just small endure bikes
No shakedown, just an short easy day one maybe.
Make it old school Dakar style. Long days, the challenge being the navigation, remoteness and distance as opposed to a sprint / hard enduro race like many rallies seem to be turning into. Malle moto as the only option...
In the end, make it what you want and are passionate about
Depending on what you decide I am quite interested
