From the 29th of April to the 4th of May, Morocco awaits for the best MTB bikers of the world to enjoy an unbelievable adventure which will celebrate 13 years of history.
In sporting terms, and after a 100% desert edition, the Titan will go to ride the mountains of Boulmalne Dades to complete the two first stages. In that area, the canyons and the big slopes will make this edition one of the most attractive ones of the race’s history. The first stage of the race will reach the 2.525 meters of accumulated high, the highest in its 13 years.
The four next stages will be happening in the Desert and the dunes until reach the area of Erfoud. In fact, the last 3 stages will have different tracks of dune, each one very important to the general classification. This will be a new incentive for the desert’s race.
Furthermore, the Titan 2018 will have the concepts of navigation and adventure as the strongest points.There will be a stage only for navigating with the GPD where the participants must guide themselves with theirs GPD navigators and they won’t find marks along the stage. During that stage the bikers who know how to use the GPS, will go through to the most unknown places in order to get the first.
So, in 2018 the race will have 6 stages plus more than 600 km to ride on under very extreme temperatures and with over 5.500 vertical accumulated meters.
In the other hand, the titans will rest in amazing camps, more than 22.000 m2. A bivouac with all the services they need in the middle of the desert. The participants will sleep in authentic berebers’ tents able to hold up to 3 people. In general numbers, the camps will accommodate more than 1.000 people (participants, assistances, staff and the mass media).
Undoubtedly, the Titan Desert by Garmin is more than a simply MTB race by stages. And in 2018 will definitely keep improving in order to be one of the best sporting adventures.
For that reason, the Titan has the best partners. Garmin, which has renewed its commitment with the race as the main sponsor for one more year, has been sponsoring the Titan Desert by Garmin for 5 years already.
