Here's another Afriquia Merzouga Rally experience!

🎙️ Jack Lundin 🇨🇦: ''My Merzouga rally ended on stage three. I had a high-speed crash and broke my right femur and left forearm. I had to have a helicopter evacuation and then ended up having to take a medivac flight to Switzerland for surgery.

I was very impressed with how the Merzouga medical team responded to my injury and was happy that they were able to remain with me until I flew out of the country. I'll come back stronger".

Here's another Afriquia Merzouga Rally experience!

🎙️ Amaury Baratin 🇫🇷: ''After 20 years of road-bike racing, I realized my dream with Merzouga Rally. I took few lessons to improve my skills in Moroccan dunes and in navigation, helped by Jean Brucy, an experienced rally-raid competitor. In the first special, I arrived too fast on the top of a dune and crashed, flipping over with the bike: I wasn’t concentrate on the roadbook, and the carbon tower, holding GPS, roadbook and other navigation instruments were away from the bike. It was a really bad start, and it took two hours to fix everything and restart, with the roadbook and other concurrents behind me.

I was really more attentive in the next stages, focusing on the roadbook. I took much pleasure in riding, than in navigating. I worked hardly with my Swiss army knife, and I was able to leave in the next stages and finish in the middle of the pack, living many beautiful moments and gaining great results. In summary, I lived one of my best and beautiful motorcycle experiences. I learned a lot about the bike, the navigation and is pitfalls, and a lot about what to do and not to do. I’ll come again in 2020, with the goal to participate in Dakar 2021 in Malle moto, when I’ll be ready’’.
