The race is on in Morocco!

The wait is over! The 2022 Rallye Du Maroc started today in Agadir with the small special (SSA1). As expected, the Monster Energy Honda team was on the start line with four CRF450 RALLY motorcycles. The one entrusted to Pablo Quintanilla (Chile) was certainly in the spotlight, since he won here last year. Ricky Brabec (USA), José Ignacio Cornejo (Chile) and Adrien Van Beveren (France) complete the quartet. Adrien – who finished fourth in the last Dakar – is doing his first race here with Honda.

Breaking the ice, this SSA1 was mostly seen by runners strategically. It is therefore not surprising that few people wanted to be in a position to open tomorrow’s stage. Van Beveren finished 6th, Quintanilla 8th, Brabec 13th and Cornejo 18th.

This Sunday, it’s time for the real kick-off of the competition, with the first stage leaving Agadir for the landscapes of southern Morocco. The day starts early with a 241 kilometer section, followed by 316 kilometers of special. Destination: Tan Tan. Mixing hard and soft tracks, navigation should be of great importance in this kick-off.
