After 2 years spent in the Alps conquering the most legendary passes in the history of the Tour de France and contemplating the most beautiful peaks of the French mountains, it was time to search a new location for the BikingMan X ! The “X” is the summit of our series, the crown jewel for every ultra cyclist willing to tackle a special event with ingredients you won’t find on other destinations. It is far from being just “the toughest” or the “longest”, this is simply meant to be one of the best ultracycling experience of the BikingMan series.
In 2023, our choice fell on Morocco, a country full of mysteries where Axel bike toured 9 years ago riding across the Atlas Mountains. We have been working with the greatest care on the course to combine physical challenge and a discovery of this spectacular country full of captivating atmospheres. Morocco also hides some of the greatest gravel and secondary roads with an impressive variety of landscapes.
As you probably know with all BikingMan X events, the course will remain secret until the very last minutes before the start, only unveiled during the race briefing, so you discover the places as you ride and get the deepest experience as possible.
But even though we want to keep the race course secret, we couldn’t wait to share with you those gorgeous landscapes we have crossed when doing the reconnaissance of the route a few weeks ago. That’s why Cedric, our beloved filmmaker, has put all his heart into preparing this short teaser (because we shouldn’t show too much anyway) of the adventure that awaits you in Morocco. Enjoy!
And to make this BikingMan X 2023 a unique moment, we’ve given it the place it deserves. The X in Morocco will therefore take place in October to conclude in style a 2023 season that we hope will be just as grandiose.
If you too have been charmed by the beauty of these images, there are still a few places left to join us in Marrakech and discover this route which will undoubtedly takes your breathe away.
