The past year and a half has been an epic adventure. Outside of launching the Rebelle Rally, working to promote it, raise awareness, build the format and checkpoint concepts, researching the best support technology, map planning, and assembling a large and incredible team….there was the development of the backbone of the Rebelle – the course. Sleepless nights, several hundred hours on the trails, back roads, and dunes, countless hours on Google Earth until my eyeballs bled, weeks upon weeks of land management research and permitting work. The result? A jaw dropping beautiful route, that was true to the mission – long, diverse, challenging at key times, and fun to drive.
