Heroes Legend

スティファン・ペテランセルが昨年主催者を務めたことで注目を集めたのが、このHeroes Legend というラリーだ。

Road book preparation

After a first trip to Mauritania in February, the "recce" team comes back from  Morocco. In spite of a 'catastrophic' weather there,  snow, heavy rain and a mud in abundance, they validated the first 4 stages. Day 1- Nador-Fez, Day 2 Fes-Marrakech, Day 3 Marrakech-tan Tan, Day 4 Tan Tan - Tan Tan in buckle.

Next trip is  planned in May.

The Route

The first reconnaissance trips have been made and a number of routes has been prepared. In the next months the Heroes Legend reconnaissance team with Anne-Marie Gerandi and Dominique Rochette will headoff to Africa to prepare roadbooks, look for bivouac locations and make appointments with local authorities to valid the route.

A new  route for this 6th edition which will bring the participants in Fes for the first bivouac and then in Marrakech for the second. A selectif route  on the West of Morocco to arrive faster in the 'big' desert, far fromwell  known tracks( very used already  by the numerous rallies in Morocco.

After the crossing of Morocco, 5 stages in Mauritania which will cross incredible dunes and which should be the scene of the most beautiful stories of the 2011 rally .

The difficulty to draw a rally is to find a compromise which can satisfy as well 'pro' as the novice amateurs. Dominique Rochette, who is the person in charge of this challenge, opted for a "spicy" route, " tehnical " and "virile" but always faithful to the tradition of Heroes Legend, the biggest difficulty can be by-passed for the beginners with penalties.
