Sandro arrived to the finish with the best tan line of the event!

We welcomed Sandro in Sidi Ifni on Saturday.

He jumped into the Atlantic Ocean right after finishing his beer and avocado smoothie.

We envy his well-earned tan lines!

Sandro started on the piste route in Tanger. From Merzouga, he continued almost entirely on the road route.

Congratulations Sandro!

Ernst and Johan rode into Merzouga today’s morning.

Ernst and Johan rode into Merzouga today’s morning. They are catching up with their scheduled plan fast and should reach the CP4 soon.

Maze changed his tactics and now making huge progress. He is only 60km behind Sofiane. Sandro has to make another 50km to the end of the 160km stretch with no services, no water, and no mobile network. We are expecting him to be in Merzouga today afternoon.

Radislav took his time at the checkpoint at Aouli mines. Had tea and a good time with the miners.

The adventure is in full swing! And the weather is perfect!

The adventure is in full swing! And the weather is perfect!

Roadies departed from Tangier yesterday morning and now both groups – roadies and piste route riders are spread across 200km along the route.

Soufiane was the first one to reach CP1 and is now leading the rest of the roadies.Sandro had some early mechanical issues almost instantly after the start, despite that he reached the CP1 in Chefchaouen as the first rider and he is untouchable since then.

Till is in 2nd position and only 50km behind Sandro. He is keeping strong even though still feeling unwell after overheating on day one.

The pair riders Ernst and Johan are now on a 246km and will camp by the lake. Good idea!

Probably the most challenging adventure one can do!

Two Continents Bike Adventure will kick off in just three weeks.

Stage one will follow the Iberica Traversa route: 1720km across the Iberian Peninsula mostly unpaved routes and trails.

Stage two will start in Tangier following the Morocco-BikeAdventure route to Sidi Ifni. 2300km through the Riff Mountains and over the Middle Atlas to the Sahara desert.

A total of 4000km and 60,000 meters of climbing makes it probably the most challenging adventure one can do!

The route is simply breathtaking!

“It’s a great adventure for anyone and also a serious test for any competitive racer who can hold it together physically and mentally. The route combines a diverse range of incredible scenery and surfaces including shifting desert sands, rough piste, and gravel. Strategy, logistics, planning, adaptability, and resilience will be needed as riders will be seriously isolated with few and meager options for resupply in rural Morocco where on occasions you may only find a few packets of wafer biscuits and tins of tuna. The route is simply breathtaking” – Donncha Cuttriss
