Un raid Aventure 100% féminin !



A competition made for women, the Trophée Roses des Sables follows the tradition of the grand African rallies. Every day, the participants start the race on a 4WD, a ROV, a quad or a motorcycle, and follow the Moroccan tracks thanks to their Road Book and their compass. Their goal is to reach the arrival arch, following as carefully as possible the established route (but not as fast as possible). Along the stage, they will have to pass through control points (the famous CP), where race commissionaires wait for them. Each CP should be validated in order to win the race; one missed CP will probably mean a dropdown in the ranking.

The Trophée Roses des Sables is not a speed race (time counters are not used to establish the race results), but it is an orientation race. When in the middle of the desert, there are three different tracks in front of you, reading the road book carefully is essential and not that easy…. The pilots will have to show their talent when defying the wet and soft wadis and of course in front of the feared but eagerly awaited dunes. After the daily race, the Roses relax in the organized bivouacs or in the hotels on the days of departure and arrival.
