In 2014 and for the first time for Omar to not ride alone in one of this journeys, he rode the Cross Egypt Challenge, one of the most difficult and challenging motorcycle rallies in the region in a 3000 km rally across Egypt.
The challenge started from the Mediterranean’s largest coastal city, Alexandria then passed through the Capital – Cairo – en route to the Red Sea’s resort Sokhna before it went South to visit the amazing resort cities of El Gouna and Marsa Alam on the Red Sea shore. The challenge then headed west to the Nile valley to visit Aswan and went south to visit the magnificent Abu Simbel temple on the southern borders of Egypt.
From Abu Simbel the riders headed back North again back to Aswan, then to the ancient city of Luxor, the world’s largest open air museum city, and the capital of Ancient Egypt before riding further North to Assiout then the final leg of of the 2014 season of Cross Egypt Challenge took place between Assiout and Cairo to end this amazing season under the Great Pyramids of Giza.
In 2015, Omar joined Cross Egypt Challenge for the second consecutive time, where he rode as a sweeper for the motorcycle formation.
