What is the Titan Desert? It is a MTB race with 6 stages and +600 km aimed at fans who want to improve themselves and live a unique experience. It is celebrated every year in MOROCCO and passes through incredible landscapes (dunes, desert plains, mountains...). This year it will take place from October 10 to 15th. Read daily chronicles

"This year I take part equipped with the new TwoNav's Cross"

Why does TwoNav identify so much with the Titan Desert?
It is a route without signage, where the use of GPS is the most important thing. Participants must go through all checkpoints. The adventure does not end at the end of each stage, when arriving at the camp, the organization announces the coordinates of the next day... and the participants begin to prepare the route.

The first stage of the Titan Desert was somewhat bumpy for the KH 7 team.
The Titans team has us used to victory, that’s true. However, not even the winner of the last four titans on Moroccan soil, Josep Betalú, could do anything in the face of a major breakdown that made him lose positions in the overall standings. The winner of the stage was Konny Looser, a Swiss cyclist who made his debut in this race in a big way.
As for the women, Núria Picas was the first of the team to cross the finish line. He did it together with his coach and partner Pau Bartoló, who compete in the mixed duo category.Read more
The longest stage has arrived, the one with the greatest unevenness. The KH 7 team managed to recover after an opening day marked by the breakdowns suffered.
At this stage, Núria Picas and Pau Bartoló won first place in a mixed duo, beating Misha Sekulova and the double world champion, Tomi Misser. Nine minutes marked the difference with the seconds to reach the finish line, quite an achievement for the KH 7 team.Read more
Josep Betalú added his first victory of this 2021 edition, removing that thorn that had been nailed since the start of the race.
Those who follow at the highest level are Núria Picas and Pau Bartoló and the first three classified in the general: Ramona Gabriel, Ariadna Ródenas and Sílvia Roura.
It should be noted that the 27 members of KH 7 have reached the goal of this third stage.Read more
Four stages, four different winners. Miguel Muñoz, KH 7 team cyclist, has won this fourth stage alone, surely the longest stage.
Towards the middle of the race the peloton broke down. Josep Betalú, Konny Looser and Miguel Muñoz took the lead, gaining a two and a half minute lead although the pursuers managed to catch them close to the goal.
As for the mixed duo, it was not their day. A mechanical breakdown left Núria Picas and Pau Bartoló with a significant loss of time in the face of leading their classification.Read more
If in the fourth stage Núria Picas and Pau Bartoló suffered from a breakdown, in this fifth stage it was up to the couple formed by Misha Sekulova and Tomi Misser. This has taken them away from the first position.
In the men’s category, highlight the role of Josep Betalú, king of the desert for his great experience in this field. He made risky decisions at this stage, and not all of them turned out well for him. Finally he achieved the fourth position.
Abraham Olano was in eleventh position, Óscar Carrasco and Miguel Muñoz have qualified in fifteenth and sixteenth place. Sara Gay, Genís Zapater and Melcior Mauri have practically entered the Top60 together.Read more
The final stage in the Titan Desert 2021 arrived. The KH 7 team, led by Melcior Mauri and accompanied by the TwoNav Cross and Trail 2 Bike GPS, managed to overcome the breakdowns of the first days, managing to meet most of its objectives.
Mixed Duo victory by Núria Picas and Pau Bartoló join the three stage victories, one by Miguel Muñoz and two by the four-time Titan winner, Josep Betalú. All this accompanied by the excellent work of the team of the 27 members that make up the largest team in the Titan Desert 2021.Read more
