During the third stage of the Tunisia Desert Challenge 2022 around Matous, 35-year-old French KTM rider De Saint-Exupéry (#114) sadly passed away. During the dune stage in southern Tunisia, the victim ran into problems at kilometer 144 and was overcome by the heat. After an emergency call, the organization's emergency medical services arrived quickly by helicopter, but all help was unavailing.
As a tribute, the organization will have a minute of silence in the evening in the bivouac. The fourth stage between Kambout and Ksar Ghilane will be shortened.
The entire organization and organizer Gert Duson in particular would like to express their condolences to the family and relatives of this wonderful young man. He will be dearly missed.
Don't limit your challenges. Challenge your limits.
