The logistics is a key point on la Boliviana.
If the lacks can find some solutions easily in our western cities, it is not the same on the Bolivian Altiplano or in the middle of the Salar of Uyuni.
Every day, there are 200 people who move, eat, live…
For this, more than 60 people are working daily, in narrow collaboration during 10 days but there is also 6 people working all year long with more of 3 months of reconnaissance in Bolivia.
Management of the competition:
The organisation is independent and is not affiliated to any sporty federation. The competition has its own sporty rules with a race director, a jury of commissioners, a computer based management of the ranking and a vehicle PC.
The management of the competition is handled by Gilles GAUBERT, director of race, attended by Patrice GRIMARD and 6 race commissioners, 2 flaggers/orienters, a rope team of 6 people.
Philippe CORDERO is in charge of this primordial sector for our organization with under his responsibility, not less than 8 vehicles of assistance, 3 ambulances, 3 doctors, 2 physiotherapists, 1 nurse, and 7 French firemen who follow the raid permanently.
The organization benefits from the logistical and friendly support of the Police and the firemen of LA PAZ.
A bivouac is set up every evening in the Bolivian villages and Eric LACOSTE organisation is providing more than 1000 meals during the race.
The organisation is providing daily coverage of the race through its own video production, photos and journalist with a daily update on the Internet but is also delivering all these Medias free of charge to any interested media. This is under the responsibility of Jean-François JOBERT (assisted by Miguel FLORES regarding Bolivian Medias). Jean-Francois JOBERT also insures the follow up of the teams.
Loïc MAUBRAS in Bolivia, assisted by Sylvain SCOCCIA in France are supervising the needs and the means in the domain of the humanitarian. Their work consists to reference the needs, to coordinate the actions in coordination with the local authorities but also to help the teams on the humanitarian projects.
