Since it was founded in 1984, the reputation of the Roc d'Azur has been to a large extent due to the always combative champions who come to finish their season with a bang in the Les Maures massif.
The Roc d'Azur is a powerful cocktail of emotions, both among the big guns at the front of the race and among the other 5,000 riders who came from all over France and Europe to participate in the defining event of their late season.
For them, time is not of the essence: all they want is to have fun. Fun riding in picture perfect landscapes at the heart of Les Maures massif, fun sharing intense moments with friends, fun revelling in an atmosphere unique to this high temple of MTB on a Sunday morning. It took them three, four, five or even six hours to complete the 56 km course and tackle the legendary spots of the race.
