Two Quebec women who completed the Trophy Roses des Sables rally in Africa last month were the only motorcyclists in the event.
Chantal Cournoyer and Stephanie Chagnon rode 450X off-road motorcycles provided by BMW and are reported as the first motorcycle riders to cross the finish line in the rally’s eight-year history.
The Trophy Roses des Sables is a women-only rally that takes place in Morocco.
This year, the vast majority of entrants rode in SUVs in the rally, which ran Oct. 9 – 17.
