It might seem like early days, but yes, with less only five months to go now before the start of the 2014 Tuareg Rallye (traditionally the 'season opener' for Pro-Am level rallies), it would be great to find out who's going, or at least planning to go... I know I am!

Once again it is my intention to provide a similar (or indeed improved!) daily media service and reportage from the event, and feed the hungry F5 machine direct from the bivouac and the stage start/finish!

For prospective competitors, it's worth noting that the organisation have listened to criticisms and suggestions from this year, and have re-structured the rider groups to allow for the limitations of full (faired) rallye bikes in the profi class (compared to regular enduro bikes), and are specifically encouraging 'big bikes' and twins in that class - so dust off those 690 Rally Replicas, 950 Super Enduros and HP2s and let's seem them in action!

Similarly, new for 2014 will be the opportunity to ride selected sectors of the rally route with a guide in a non-competitive 'Raid' category - ideal for those riders who want to experience the atmosphere of the rallye and see the action up close, but without the requirement of a fully prepared race-bike... it's ideal for big trailies and dual-sports, and you can either make a holiday/trip of it riding to and from Tunisia, or arrange transport with a number of the European assistance teams in attendance...

There is even a reduced entry fee if you apply before the end of this year! - so what are you waiting for?!

You bet! - I actually arrived in San Francisco last night - I'm here for a few weeks now - we must get together for a lunch soon, gas about next season, and maybe get some riding in too?!

As I was lamenting before, I dont know if I can get a proper twin ready in time for this- But I have a plan! and hopefully the same thing will repeat here in 2015.

Any idea of there will be a "fly in and ride" option ? Who offers such packages ? desert rose ?

Shipping my bike from UAE might be more expensive than renting it out for the rally ...

Torque Racing Services can rent you a KTM450 EXC. Please contact us for details. We have a customer already flying in from UAE for the same event :-)

Equally your bike can be collected from the port for you.

In and out again. Very sorry that I have to cancel next yrs Tuareg but none of my rallye buddies could join.
So now we ride the Albania RAID instead.

Will miss the soft sand! ;-)

Hey Joerg,

AFAIK one or two guys there were talking of going to do the Tuareg 2014

Hi Stefan and thanks for the info.
But I already booked the Albania RAID. So no way for a Tuareg in 2014 for me. I will try to come back in '15.

Just a quick heads-up with the Tuareg Rallye less than 12 weeks away...

Once again I'll be supporting a number of riders with a personal media service, together with daily updates here on ADVrider (and the Jennydakar.com Facebook page of course!)...

Two of my featured riders for 2014 will be the 'Team Dirtpunk' riders and fellow Mondo Sahara participants, Paul Castle and Gabriel Bolton...

Both are already accomplished overland and adventure riders, but this will be their first competitive Rally... if last year is another to go by, then it will be a real baptism of fire!

Paul is producing a series of short videos covering the prep and participation in the 2014 event, here is the first instalment - enjoy!
