    Again this year, I will be riding the Raid de l'Amitié, a navigation race from Agadir to Marrakesh, passing through Smara in the Western Sahara, and through the most beautiful tracks you can find at Morocco.

    From 24th April to 1st May.

    From Portugal will start a big entourage of 20 bikes from small enduro bikes to the blast 990 Adventure, quads and side-by-side Polaris :)

    In french language check here for more info.

    First update direct from Ned just received.


    I had no idea how big the event is; so i wasn't prepared as well as i
    wish for spreading the word about the race: looks like it will be
    awesome; 120 bikes in the field; i think 50 or more cars;

    this is perfect exposure for me; all the elements without the pressure
    of money: roadbooks look great and pretty cool to be loading my stuff
    into a giant race truck: bike is Carlos Martins ktm 640, fresh Michelin
    Deserts and mousses;

    cant wait to start riding tomorrow;

    Whoa, wifi that works! A first and maybe a last. Yes, only American in 24 years. Today was the usual pre race craziness, but I think we made it through.

    Another adver here is Per, the viking, from norway, who organized last years European adv gathering.

    Awesome group, very excited to actually ride tomorrow. Don't anticipate more connectivity, so Chris and Nate will be the sources. They should have iritrack up and running tomorrow, if my wiring works.

    I am at the riders meeting now, but since I don't speak French, it is academic.

    Braapp!
