In 1996, Fusil left the Raid to begin a new adventure race series, the Elf Authentic Adventure Patrick Brignoli and Alain Gaimard continued to organize the Raid with their company RGO and Saga d'Aventures The 1997 Raid in Ecuador was the first raid organized without Fusil 2003 was the last year for the Raid Gauloises In 2004 the Raid Gauloises was retooled into the Raid World Championship
