At just the tender age of 15, British e-bike rider Robert Adams claimed victory at the inaugural E-Bike Desert Challenge, which saw competitors ride for four days across the Morroccan Desert battling extreme heat and super challenging terrain.
Taking place between boxing day and new year's day, riders faced huge sand dunes and had to navigate the vast course themselves using GPS to pick the best route, using their motors where neccessary. Robert competed in the E-Bike 25 class, which permits 250W bikes that can reach 25 km/h (the same restrictions placed on UK e-bikes).
Robert told CNN Sport: "The navigation is a skill in itself, I think that's what makes this event so unique. You could be the fastest rider there but if your navigation isn't up to scratch you're not going to do well.
"Just traveling through Morocco is an experience in itself. At first, it seems very different to home and very busy. The further you go from the big cities the friendlier and more interesting the people seemed to become."
The E-Bike Desert Challenge also has a 450W class and an open class which allows bikes of up to 2000W, and organisers say they expect it to grow to 300 entrants next year. Head over to the Desert Challenge website here, and check out Robert's instagram for more of his intrepid e-bike adventures.
