A LARGER GLOBAL MEDIA REACH
This 11th edition was extremely present on French and International media which led to a strong increase of visibility for the rally. Indeed, programs dedicated to the race were broadcasted on international channels such as Eurosport, Sky TV, Sport 5 CZ, Canal + Afrique…

On the social media side, unavoidable these days, the Facebook Live “Bivouac Inside”was yet another success in terms of views. Our fans were very active on our plateforms during the race.

More information related to the media reach will be communicated in our 2019 Media Report, soon downloadable on our website.
