The Rebelle Rally 2016 is the first women’s off-road navigation rally raid in the United States, coming together in large part by the efforts of off-road pro Emily Miller, visionary and leader.
Teams of two women (driver/navigator) will spend seven days driving mostly off-road from Lake Tahoe to the sand dunes of Southern California. Best of all, you get to leave your cell phone, computer, GPS, & headaches behind. It’s all about YOU. And your endless abilities.
Two girls from France will be joining a race of endless possibilities. To achieve something with your own strength and concentration!
New adventures! This is what Chris and Hélène were looking for when they decided to be part of the first Rebelle Rally. These two off-track racing lovers met in 2014 when they were both looking for a team mate to enter an all female navigation race held in the south of Morocco. Sand, rocks, mountains, heat…
Nothing stopped them! Now let’s add rivers, forest and maybe snow and they have a fantastic opportunity to discover another less known side of Nevada and California through navigation, TSD and blind check points. Drawn to sane competition, they come to this first edition humble, knowing that US contenders will be the best emulation there is to do their best on this unique off-road race.

“I have a true passion for life, and new challenges do not scare me! Everyday at work, I have to find solutions to technical problems, so finding myself in the great US ourdoor driving a 4×4 is a challenge I look forward to facing. I want to combine pleasure with adventure, and doing so in the US is just a dream come true. I enterered the Rose des Sables Trophy in 2013 and then the Rallye des Gazelles in 2015, both taking place in Morocco. Now, my motivation for this first Rebelle could not be higher.”
Navigator – 46 – French
Singer, Producer, Communication officer
“I am a 12 time Rallye des Gazelles participant where I have been both a navigator and a pilot and was often sponsored by Nissan. My best ranking was 3rd in the general ranking and a 1st place in the Media challenge, offering Nissan and M6 (TV) a first victory, and a 30.000€ prize to a French charity. My first Gazelles with Hélène was the opportunity to built a great team, with her behind the wheel and me holding the compass. No doubt our first Rebelle will be a terrific new challenge. In 2010, I won the Rallye des Princesses (TSD) in the best class possible : History.”
We hope they will experience a great success and enjoy this girls-only event! Best of luck!
