Though the first leg of the Gazelle Rally across the Moroccan desert proved rocky (or sandy, as the case may be) for Emily Miller and her navigator, they have since righted the ship. The duo stands in third place halfway through the event.
Emily Miller and her new navigator hit a bit of a snag during the Prologue stage (darn those dead ends!), but they have a good team rapport heading into the women-only Rallye des Gazelles. The Prologue was practice, but the next stage counts.
What kind of women choose to travel from far and wide to compete against each other -- and, occasionally, dig each other out of sand dunes -- during a two-week off-road auto race across Morocco? Driven ones, naturally.
