WHO TRAVELS ADD TO HIS LIFE

 

Who?

Marion Duplain and Sylvie Pregevole – team #110.

Bold and full of energy, our common passion for adventure, challenge and our desire to share beautiful moments together naturally led us to this adventure.

When?

From the 13th to 28th March 2020.

What?

Rallye Aïcha des Gazelles du Maroc.

30th edition of the 100% women off-road rally in Morocco, from Nice to Essaouira through the Moroccan desert and mountains where the rally is held: 1,300 km in 9 days of competition.

Why?

Challenge ourselves, live a dream, share our beliefs and values with others and support women and their communities.

How long to go?

Until the start of the rally

Marion, 36, Navigator, Director at Advenia, London

A pragmatic and fervorous entrepreneur living in the UK for nearly 15 years, Marion has been able to hone her ambition towards meeting every challenge offered to her. Between security or adventures, Marion always chooses to live her dreams. The hardiness Marion has inherited from the Brits will be very useful to face the Moroccan desert, tougher than the deserts of Namib and Oman. Conquering Atlas is a challenge of epic proportions, but Marion – who grew up in the Auvergne region – knows mountains and is ready to guide her team through them.

“Embrace the intensity of life.”

Sylvie, 50, Pilot, Founder at Maison Pregevole 1968, Lyon

Proud mother and great lover of beautiful escapes, especially road trips in vintage cars. The world is made to be discovered, and challenges to be taken. Italian of origin and having grown up in the North of France, Sylvie brings experience, calm, strength and ambition to meet this new challenge. Setting aside her epicurean nature, this race is a time to embrace the beauty of nature and Sylvie is ready to drive her team of Gazelles towards success.

“Take the risk of getting lost, to better discover yourself.”
