Montana adventurers featured on NBC News

Rally

Two Bozeman women who competed in a grueling off-road rally in Morocco were featured on NBC News on Sunday.

Don’t miss this great piece from NBC News on two of the most amazing women in Montana.

Rhonda Cahill and Rachelle Croft, both of Bozeman, make up Team X Elles, and they came in 14th out of 125 teams competing in the Rallye Aicha Des Gazelles in Morocco, which concluded over the weekend.

The race through the Sahara Desert is billed as “the longest, most difficult, all-female off-road rally in the world.” It’s not just the harsh terrain that makes the race so tough. Competitors are allowed to use dead reckoning only—which means employing only a compass, outdated maps and plotters. No GPS, no service crews, no communication with the outside world.

This was the third rally for Croft, the driver, and the second year that Croft and Cahill, the navigator, have competed together. They were racing partly to raise awareness of sexual abuse.

You can read about them in a story the Bozeman Chronicle ran before the rally last year, or go to their website for more information.
