STAGE 1: April 29th.
The Titan Desert by Garmin 2018 starts with a main dish. A high mountain stage, in a loop, with a great climb and a section that runs through an absolutely spectacular gorge. Most of the tracks will be in good condition, and the difficulty of the stage lies in the high accumulated drop, which is the absolute record in a stage of the Titan Desert.
STAGE 2: April 30st.
The second stage of the Titan Desert by Garmin will also be the first part of the marathon stage. That means that the participants will have to take the start line with everything necessary to spend the night in the desert and to make the necessary adjustments and repairs on their bicycle since they will not be able to receive any kind of external help. In the first part of the route you will travel through a mountainous area and with very uneven moments and at the end you will reach the lower part of the valley to spend the night.
Second part of the marathon stage. The titans will start after having slept in the desert and without being able to receive assistance. In terms of the route will be a typical stage of the Titan Desert, with large extensions, first contact with the sandy tracks and without technical difficulty.
First 100% desert stage. With a first part that runs sandy and rocky tracks and a second part in which a string of dunes is surrounded, faces the passage of a very sandy area and ends up arriving at the camp on foot of the dunes of Erg Chebbi.
Garmin Stage, without track facilitated by the organization. The titans will have to pass through 4 CP’s and 3 hydration stations but using the path that their intuition marks them. As soon as you leave, you will have to cross a large string of dunes, before going through a large plate before heading back. to the point of departure.
Final stage with a fast start for some sandy tracks. At the middle of the stage riders have to face a hard but short climbing. The tracks change and it becomes a stony and deteriorate path. Before reaching the final goal, riders will have to attack a small string of dunes that will close the incredible route of the Titan Desert 2018.
