THE COURSE

The route will be extremely variable, on brand news tracks with a lot of driving, in the heart of unforgettable landscapes with a real resting in Morocco and two loop stages in Mauritania.

For the second consecutive year and after last year’s success, the “500 Miles” stage without assistance will be renewed in Mauritania. It’s a safe bet that this stage could shake the ranks, a few days before the finish line!
