TELLURIDERS TEAM TACKLES TOUGH OFF-ROAD REBELLE RALLY
“Bring it!” said Alyssa Roenigk, “I’m beyond charged to get going.” Roenigk, a senior writer at sports media giant ESPN, will drive a 2020 Telluride SX in the fifth annual Rebelle Rally, an all-women, off-road navigational challenge held in the deserts of California and Nevada. Starting October 8 in Lake Tahoe, California, the rally will cover 1,500 miles in eight days before reaching the finish line, October 16, in the Imperial Sand Dunes, California. Roenigk’s navigator, Sabrina Howells, has a huge job guiding the team through the course using only old-fashioned paper maps and a compass—no GPS, no cell phones, no digital devices of any kind. “I can’t wait,” Howells said, “I really geek out on this stuff.”
