When the dust settled, this all-women’s rally drew the greatest number of teams—and wins—ever from the U.S.
By Sue Mead
It’s the only rally for “women-only” and the toughest all-women’s sporting event in the world. I learned about it first from my dear friend Emily Miller, a true entrepreneur with talents that range the gamut from being an accomplished off-road racer to running a PR firm that provides sports marketing and helps build brands. Miller placed 21st that year and returned for two more rallies, placing 11th and 2nd consecutively.
Since, she has been the U.S. team trainer for the legendary Rallye Aicha des Gazelles, known as the Gazelle Rally in the United States. Miller is mentor and an ardent cheerleader for the off-road rally, encouraging other women from all walks of life to participate in this “life-changing” event that takes place in southern Morocco’s majestic and challenging landscape.
