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.

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 ;-)

New for 2022, the Roc d'Azur sets off to discover the Massif de l'Estérel!

With this new gravel, take the start and choose your distance on D-Day. Depending on your form, your desires, the weather, etc., decide at the time if you want to do 47, 50 or 58 km! Regardless of the distance you choose, this walk will above all be an opportunity to have fun and discover this exceptional setting, made up of red rocks. These routes will take you on wide tracks, easier technically, which will allow you to take the time and admire the surroundings serenely. The "Graveleux" will be seduced by the originality of this coastal massif and its 250 million year old gravel. The Esterel is a site that is particularly well suited to the practice of Gravel, provided you respect it.

This year, you will therefore have the choice of putting yourself in competition mode on the “Gravel Roc” in the Maures, or opting for the “Gravel Esterel” hiking version.
