Triumph Tiger 900 & Ivan Cervantes Master Hard Trail Category of Morocco’s 1000 Dunas RAID

Triumph have added to the trophy cabinet with their ultra-popular and ultra-capable Tiger 900 Rally Pro winning the Hard Trail category of the 2022 1000 Dunas Raid in Morocco, piloted by none other than Ivan Cervantes.

Triumph’s off-road ambassador claimed almost all available points throughout the seven stages with 1390 out of 1455 total points.

Riding the same Tiger 900 Rally Pro – on which he won the Trail category of the Baja Aragón in July – Cervantes’ achievement at this incredibly technical and challenging seven-day, 1500km-long rally showcases his determination and the Tiger’s class-leading capability.

“It was an incredible, 1500km-long adventure where the Tiger 900 Rally Pro behaved perfectly. We encountered every type of terrain that we could possibly imagine – gravel, sand, mud, rocks, and river crossings – without having any issue, proving how capable the Tiger 900 Rally Pro is,” Ivan Cervantes said.

“I would like to thank Triumph Spain for their constant support during the rally which enabled me to focus on achieving the best possible result.”

Adding to the Tiger’s growing roster of racing achievements, Aled Price and Vanessa Ruck also both completed the 1000 Dunas riding standard Tiger 900 Rally Pros in the same Hard Trail category as Cervantes, making Ruck the first female rider to complete the challenge on a standard adventure bike.

Triumph enthusiast and mechanic Josu Orozko added to the impressive list of achievements with third position in the Trail category on his own 10-year-old Tiger 800 XC, which he prepared for the race personally.

The 1000 Dunas Raid is designed to test the physical and psychological capabilities of each of the riders taking part, stretching their endurance, concentration, and ability to navigate challenging terrain with roadbooks to the limit.

Taking in some of the most spectacular terrain in Northern Africa, the 66 riders in the 2022 edition completed long stages through the heat and dust, reaching the Recam Plateau, the infinite slopes of Bouarfa, and the great Erg dunes of Merzouga.
