What you need to know!
One of the most original features of the Gravel Trophy : The route will only be revealed 5 days before the event!
As a competitor, you will receive an invitation with all the information regarding the weekend organisation.
Timetables, checkpoints, but also a detailed description of all the paths, villages and historical monuments you will cross on your journey.
To discover is to know the history and culture of the paths taken!
Travelling is first of all knowing the history and the culture of the taken paths.
Important: the route will not be marked.
All participants will receive a roadbook and the link to download the track into their GPS.
The course will not be marked in "wild mode" with km of ribbon! Having as objective to organize an event "Eco Friendly", we will mark and will be present at the points of the course.
Finally, to remain in the spirit of discovery and adventure, while ensuring the safety of participants, several strategic checkpoints will segment the course.
Further information about the course...?
From the resort of Valberg (06), based in the heart of the Mercantour massif, participants will travel along unique roads and paths, carefully selected for their majestic panoramas.
This first stage will also be a nice warm-up, quite technical with many passages in altitude.
The challenge will stop for the night in the historic city of Vence (06).
To recover, we offer a '' Barbe'Cute Party '': Food Trucks, discovery of local and organic specialties, all in a festive atmosphere, accompanied by a private concert ... but do not forget to sleep because the next day a big challenge is waiting for you.
Sunday morning, the start of the second stage of the Adventure awaits you. It is composed of a new loop towards Valberg.
More rolling but also more ascending, this day will be the way for everyone to push his limits to the extreme.
At the end, we offer an extraordinary alpine challenge between the sea and the mountains, in the middle of a rich and exceptional nature.
