E A O Desert Dakar Training

You want to go to the Dakar Rally and other desert rally's but you still do not feel that confident? In this case EAO can provide you with a good desert training!
Ever since 1997 we cross the Moroccan desert. Martin Fontyn (read EAO) will be happy to learn you many tricks and tips to increase your driving skills over infernal dunes and slopes.
We had the honor of training the Yamaha Holland team for several years (some big riders were present) . As Daniel Willemsen and Mirjam Pol which I still recommend and to be grateful for what they have learned with EAO.


We offer a package tailored to your needs consisting of time, hotels and type of training.
You just get on the plane and we'll do the rest.
You can use the EAO service truck or own service truck and own mechanics if desired.

As you can see in the picture this year we had the honor of training the Europ Honda team from Henk Helligers. Again with top pilots like Bolivian Juan Carlos Salvatierra and Dutch Jan van Woerkum, Marco van Geel, Ronald Ter Beek, Ebert Dollevoet, Geert Mulder,

Daniel Willemsen unfortunately could not attend due to a wrist injury..

EAO  can also train you  with motors locally ie rent motorcycles ktm 450.

Daily learn to cope with the heat and your stamina.
Preparation and doctors guidance in Europe belongs to the possibilities.
In short everything you need to know to successfully complete a long and extensive desert rally.

One of the most important things in a rally is navigation. We will teach you how to learn to read a roadbook and learn how to assess local situations.
Rally driving is more than mindless driving at full speed.
A golden Tip 
  1. Drive at your own pace.
  2. Just do your own thing do not chase someone else. Your direction was probably the right one anyway.

We also recommend participating in our annual Morocco raid in late April.
2500km through the Moroccan desert. More info also on this site.

Mail us and we will create a training package for yourself or your team!
