The long-awaited race begins. The Titan Desert Morocco 2022 begins.
This year TwoNav collaborates with several teams and runners, since this year more than ever, the importance of preparing the route and the use of GPS is greater than ever. Our teams and riders have previously worked with our Land software and are equipped with the GPS Cross. We wish you all the best of luck!
Yesterday the first stage of the Titan Desert 2022 was held.
Within the KH7 team, led by Melcior Mauri, there is a great team of champions who have been training hard for this moment.
Unfortunately, in the first stage one of them, the favorite Josep Betalú, had to leave due to a knee injury.
We also find Constantino in the team, winner of 4 editions of the TITAN DESERT from 2016 to 2019, being his team leader. He will be supported by Óscar Carrasco Fernández and Luis Enrique López. Óscar Carrasco has achieved, among other victories, the XCN championship in Castilla La Mancha, and Luís Enrique López, a 24-year-old Honduran runner, was, in 2021, the Honduran National Champion in the MTB XCO and Road modalities.
In the Women’s Category we have seven members, where Anna Ramírez stands out, current Ultramarathon European Champion and winner of 3 editions of the TITAN DESERT 2015, 2017 and 2019. Anna won yesterday in the first stage of the race, so It was an incredible start.
In Mixed Duo we have Núria Picas and Eduard Barceló who also came first in the first stage of the mixed duo modality. Núria Picas has a great track record as a Trail Running runner and once she retired she has continued practicing sports and cycling. Regarding Eduard Barceló, he stood out as a professional in the world of Adventure Raids with the Salomon and Buff teams, being World Champion of Adventure Raids 2000 and 2001, 19th Ironman Nice 2009, 9th. Swimrun World Championship 2019.
The Swiss Konny Looser, TwoNav ambassador, started as the favorite in this race, the queen of the BTT in stages.
Konny started mountain biking at the age of 10 after going on an MTB backpacking trip with his family. He spent his entire youth on the bike and always wanted to be a professional cyclist! He became a professional at the age of 22 after winning the European Under-23 Marathon Championship twice and the famous BIKE-Transalp back in 2011.
Over the years, he has been successfully racing all over the world and could pull off many big wins. His goals for this year are once again to win some Ultra Races like the Salzkammergut Trophy and Desert Dash Namibia, but also to defend his title at Titan Desert in Morocco and hopefully podium finishes at the Cape Epic and Swiss Epic.
In the first stage of the Titan Desert 2022 he was second, so we will closely follow his evolution. We wish you the best of luck!

For the team, participating in the Titan Desert is a big step full of ambition for a team full of energy.
