Seem's like a good idea... similar to "shakedown" on WRC rallies...

especially for the "amateur" riders who perhaps don't get a chance as often to do dunes/navigation. A good safety aspect before letting everyone loose on stage one under "competition" conditions.


The final MX stage in the Erg Chebbi dunes will be good...


Yeah... I'll put a quid on Yosemite for that one as well Too Old.

Hmmmm... wonder where they got that idea from?!

(Hint: The Tuareg Rallye has had that format on one of the Dune days for years - called the King Stage - basically a mass run-to-your-bike start, then three laps of the dunes with an increasingly tightening time schedule - then the finish is on top of the cathedral dune...)

Good to see the Merzouga Rally organization running with a good idea when they see one!

The riders I'm interested in (other than the bun-fight at the sharp end, actually, not so much... although 'Go Helder') - including ADV inmates, and rally friends are:

#33 Patsy Quick - GBR - Desert Rose Racing

#45 Paul Carlyle - GBR - Desert Rose Racing

#52 Lyndon Poskitt - GBR - Lyndon Poskitt Racing

#53 Kurt Burroughs - GBR - Lyndon Poskitt Racing

#57 Ollie Lloyd - GBR - OWL Racing/Speedbrain

#71 Mike Sheperd - NZ - Desert Rose Racing

Looking forward to it all kicking off soon - Patsy already has an injury - a tyre lever sprung up and hit her in the eye yesterday!

Jx
Rider #66 Phil Page is worth keeping an eye on - he hails from the 'other' Channel Island of Guernsey, where offroading is limited to a few hundred yards of muddy farm tracks and the overall island speed limit is 35mph !

Don't expect him to set winning stage times but he is doing the event it to raise funds for a local hospice in Guernsey

More info on his website here http://www.offroadraising.co.uk/news-updates/

Suppose, although for the lads who raced last week i'm sure another rest day would be beneficial over a day of risking body and machine....but indeed a brilliant idea for the amateurs to get accustomed to the terrain and shake the cobwebs out of their bodies and bikes.

fearless for sure, not very famous but Pegoraro has made almost all the existant rallyes, included the Dakar (in 1991, finished 34th with a Dominator) and the Australian Safari Rally

Just hope is a iritrack problem
