EdoMossi presents the 2016 Merzouga Rally2015-12-18 02:55
New dates and a renewed formula for the 2016 edition
Two months after the finish of the Merzouga Rally 2015, the new edition is taking shape and EdoMossi is delighted to announce that the Rally will take place from the 21st to the 27th of May 2016.
It’s not a simple change of dates, shifting from October to May, but a radical transformation. May is the ideal month to organize a Rally in Morocco and the 5 race days + Prologue formula rediscovers the original idea of the first adventurous Merzouga Rally: a technical and navigated race to discover Morocco, articulated on three different bivouacs:
• Merzouga - Hotel Tombuctu
• Atlas Bivouac (new)
• Erfoud - Xaluca hotel
During the scouting, EdoMossi looked for new tracks, away from the touristic routes and the paths covered by other events. A new world came up. From this innovative route comes the idea of the ATLAS BIVOUAC. In 2016 the arrival of the traditional Marathon stage will be at almost 2000 mt of altitude in the middle of the Moroccan Atlas Mountains.
EdoMossi, Promoter of the Merzouga Rally: “Year after year the Rally has seen an exponential growth both in terms of participants as well as nations represented. With the 2016 edition we are ready for a radical change, a CAP change, without distorting the true nature of the Rally. We aim at making an even more daring and fascinating race. More than a challenge, it’s the start of a new adventure and I’m sure that all the competitors that have believed in me throughout all these years, will follow me and many others will join us”.
Competition, challenge, adventure but also a professional organization focused on all the small details that puts the competitor at the center of the event. Thanks to the experience gained in all these years, the Merzouga Rally 2016 will continue to be a competitors-oriented rally re-descovering the adventure and the ultimate challenge of its beginnings.
