Rando Races

Does mountain biking represent friends and fun, performance and scenery or family and conviviality for you?  You don’t have to choose anymore: there’s a rando race for everyone at the Roc d’Azur and there’s nothing to stop you trying several different ones, they are all one-of-a-kind races!

All the races below are timed but will not give rise to a ranking.

Technical sections, fun sections, climbs with a sting in their tail and beautiful countryside are the ingredients of this ride that demands full commitment.

A great, fairly athletic rando acts as an introduction to the hills and vegetation of the Mediterranean. Of course, it’s uphill, but stunning panoramic views await you if you can drag yourself to the top!

In the foreground, you’ll see the Gulf of Fréjus and the famous red rocks of the Esterel Massif are not far off. In the distance you’ll see the Mercantour.

So, if you like MTB as much as picture postcard scenery, the Rando Altitude is the race for you ;-)
