SET YOUR OWN PACE
Start behind a waving race flag each morning. Navigate your way towards the finish line. After a day in the saddle or on the footpegs, you’ll arrive at Ténéré Town. Soak up the bustling atmosphere of the bivouac while riders arrive after the daily stage. Experience it all during the Ténéré Travel Trophy, without the race element of a rally. The stages were made from an adventure rider’s perspective. This results in challenging daily routes off the beaten track, with a variety of remarkable highlights to enjoy. Your time spent between start and finish has no consequences for the ranking, set your own pace throughout the days.
PUSH YOUR LIMITS
Niet vet: The Ténéré Travel Trophy is designed for adventure riders with off road experience. To make sure everyone gets the maximum out of themself and their Ténéré, the first day of the Ténéré Travel Trophy is an experience day full of master classes, clinics and rideouts to sharpen your skills for the journey ahead. During the 5 stages you can expect routes off the beaten track, a combination of paved and unpaved sections. The unpaved sections exist mostly of double tracks and some single tracks, river crossings and unpaved mountain passes. For every off road section, there will be an on road alternative. This way, beginner off road riders can take paved detours when they find their limits.
After you cross the finish flag of that day’s stage, you ride into the bivouac at a new location. You can pitch your tent and get refreshed with a shower. Take your time to relax with a refreshing drink and enjoy the local gastronomy. Share your stories around the campfire and finally sleep in your tent underneath the stars. The bivouac, which is called Ténéré Town, is the place to be at the end of each stage. If you don’t like camping and prefer more luxury, we still like you to participate. You can book a room each night. Sometimes this is possible at the finish location, but always in close proximity.
