The Roc Enduro has had special attention. A specialist was consulted, and he redrew the whole course. He has designed six “specials” which will be fantastic! Those of you who love descents and speed will get a real show! Those wanting to participate have to read the rules concerning equipment and licenses, but they should not hesitate for too long. The number of places for this competition is limited.
New this year!
For those who don’t feel the need for speed, we have other offerings. There’s the ROC FAMILLE, an event in which the whole family can participate. Or theROC GOURMAND (you read that correctly!). During this 20 km long tour we will provide a number of replenishment stations with delicious local specialties, especially for the epicureans among us! To recuperate from the Roc Marathon, or just? because it tastes so good ;-). TheE-BIKERS can sign up for the Roc Noir and the amateurs of TANDEM BIKING can participate in the Rando Roc Rouge and the Rando Roc Noir.
