The Rallye des Pharaons is an FIM Cross-Country Rallies World Championship event that takes place in Egypt, with Cairo being both the start and finishing point at the foot of the pyramids of Giza, and covers roughly around 3,100 kilometres (1,900 mi). It is similar in format to the Dakar Rally in that it takes place in desert conditions and cars, trucks, and motorcycles are all permitted to compete. For 2004, Rallye des Pharaons ran from September 25 to October 4.

Tragedy struck on September 29, 2004, when three-time Dakar Rally winner Richard Sainct was killed when his motorcycle ran off the course.[1][2] KTM, who Sainct rode for, pulled all other factory racers from the rest of the rally in respect for Sainct.
