    Me too. A top ten for sure. This stage I was 5:th or something. I have one jumping the Merzouga hausdune with the Zebra, but maybe it's enough zebras already.... :norton

    Day 1 looks like its split 50km in the morning and 50km in the afternoon. i presume they are using it to ease everyone into it and work out the seeding for everyone.
    From the photo's on google earth it looks like mini dunes, probably only 4-6ft high.

    Does anyone (Jenny?) have a list of advRider inmates who will be on this rally?
    It would be really nice to meet as many of them as possible. Who knows, maybe we can all get together for one big photo.

    fun fun

    no, those are just the ones that Jenny is officially following. There are quite a few other advRiders on this rally. (Beaney, Krynock, JoeJanas, me, and probably 10 more.)

    Team Rally Raid Sweden loaded the support truck today with 12 bikes and all the gear. Mattias from Scandinavia Off-Road Service will hit the road tomorrow to catch the ferry on Tuesday to Tunis.
