WEDNESDAY, MAY 1ST. MAADID – ERG CHEBBI (80 KM.)
Our first day on the bike will lead us to discover one of the most breathtaking landscapes in the area, the dunes of Erg Chebbi. After breakfast at our hotel, we will ride along a local road towards the city of Rissani, where we will stop to visit its colorful market, unique in these latitudes. This market supplies products to the tribes and nomads of the desert.
We’ll grab a snack here to recharge and venture through the alleys of Rissani until we reach a spectacular palm grove. From there, we’ll take a track that leads us to the majestic Erg Chebbi. At this location, we’ll get to know the iconic Titan camp, where participants will sleep during the 4th and 5th stages.
THURSDAY, MAY 2ND. ERG CHEBBI – ERG CHEBBI (75 KM.)
The second stage will take us to the breathtaking Oasis Tissermine. After lunch, we will venture with our e-bikes through a circuit among dunes that will lead us to the impressive Erg Chebbi, the location of the Titan camp.
FRIDAY, MAY 3RD. ERG CHEBBI – MAADID (70 KM.)
The final stage of the race becomes the grand celebration for the Titans, marking the end of over 600 km covered over 6 days. The circuit for the eBike Experience program will begin before the start of the main participants. We will ride the last stage up to a specific point, where we will stop to witness the passage of the first competitors. Afterward, we will deviate from the official race route, taking a different track until rejoining it in the final part of the course, sharing the last kilometers of the race. Crossing the finish line arch will mark the end of these three days on our e-bikes in Morocco.
