The 37th edition of the Roc d’Azur, the biggest MTB event on Earth, will take place on the nature base in Fréjus (Var) from 6 to 10 October 2021. Registration opens today at noon. Participants will get a full refund if the event has to be cancelled due to the COVID-19 epidemic.
The ability to look far ahead and anticipate obstacles is one of the basics of mountain biking, and the same holds true for the Roc d’Azur. After having to postpone the 37th edition last autumn, the Roc d’Azur immediately switched its focus to 2021. Thanks to the commitment of its partners, the volunteers and everyone else who plays a part in making the event a huge success, MTB fans are now invited to come to Fréjus from 6 to 10 October to get a new taste of the landscapes of Les Maures Massif and the hallowed grounds of the Roc d’Azur, including the Col du Bougnon with its fiery atmosphere, the Fournel and the sentier des Douaniers with its majestic view of the Mediterranean sea.
The participants will again get to stretch out the summer as they revel in the sensations of the courses, as well as getting a new sip of the cocktail that makes the Roc d’Azur a real crowd-puller. A cocktail made from sun, big open spaces and, of course, sport and a friendly atmosphere.
Races for riders of all ages, levels and genres
The programme features over 30 events in 6 categories (races, recreational rides, gravel grinders, electric-assist bikes, triathlon and kids), ensuring that mountain bikers of all ages, levels and genres get to live a unique experience riding alone, with their friends or with their families in the Roc d’Azur. The Tri Roc (Thursday), Canyon Roc Marathon (84.5 km, Friday), Roc Ruelles in Fréjus (Friday), Gravel Roc (65.4 km, Saturday), Kid Roc (from 2 to 14 years, Saturday) and Alltricks.com Rando Roc Noire and Rando Roc Noire Électrique (45.4 km Saturday) are just a few examples of the wide palette of events the Roc d’Azur has in store.
Meanwhile, the flagship event of the week, the Roc d’Azur race (Sunday), will get a revamped procedure to enhance the participants’ experience. The first wave will start at 8:30 am and there will be longer intervals between waves (25 minutes instead of 15) to ease congestion even further.
Full refund in the event of cancellation
The Roc d’Azur has got its finger on the pulse of the health situation around the globe. It stands ready to adapt and take any necessary measures both in the races and in the village to host participants, companions, exhibitors and spectators in optimal safety conditions and in strict compliance with the health regulations in force. A full refund for the 2021 edition will be issued if the event has to be cancelled due to the COVID-19 epidemic.
