Images of Raid des Alizés competitors having fun at the Habitation Depaz in Saint-Pierre roamed social networks and infuriated the Martinique. Next, event organizers want to be reassured and provide details of what really happened on Tuesday evening (November 23).
Pictures and videos yesterday evening (Tuesday 23 November) at Habitation Depaz for the Raid des Alizés have already toured the island. Images considered inappropriate in light of the health and social context affecting Martinique.
The organizer notes that it was a matter of receiving participants, which is traditionally carried out at the airport with a band. “But compared to covid, the animation was animated. There wasn’t as big a party as some people might think. It lasted 15-30 minutes max. Especially since the next day, they had a competition. It didn’t make sense, it lasted a quarter of an hour. Only,” explains Samir Boudjemaa, General Manager of TV SPORT EVENT.
This was followed by a briefing and dinner. This morning’s contestants kicked off the competition with a canoe event. The organizers ensure that all arrangements have been made at a hygienic level. Participants in a healthy bubble throughout the competition period.
