Mohamed EL MORABITY (D008-MAR)

ALWAYS IN THE SHADOW OF HIS BROTHER ...

If the relationship between the brothers Ahansal in MARATHON DES SABLES was marked by a real rivalry, that between Mohamed El Morabity and his old brother Rachid is, however, inspired by a deep respect. To the point that the cadet refuses to seriously tease his elder when both are in the running in a competition.

This attitude, which is too reverential, hurts the minds fundamentally attached to fair play, but Mohamed does not care; especially since he knows that Rachid, six-time winner of the MARATHON DES SABLES, is obsessed with the record of Lahcen Ahansal - 10 wins - he intends to reach or even exceed. "I will never fight to beat my brother. On the contrary, I will do everything to make his wish, that of marking more than anyone else the history of the MDS, "he slices.

As a result, Mohamed, who has enormous potential, continues to play the role of second knife since his first participation in this race two years ago: he placed 2nd in 2017 and 2018, and is preparing for year again to retain his title of dolphin.

But how long will it last to be satisfied with this folding seat? At 27 years old and facing the emergence of young long-haired wolves like his compatriot Abdelaziz Baghazza, or the formidable French rider Merile Robert, it is perhaps the moment to violate his oath and to try to inscribe his name the winners of the MARATHON DES SABLES winners ...
