With over 20 thousand participants and 150 thousand visitors from 50 countries around the world during the last edition, it is the number one mountain biking event in the world in terms of participation.

This year, Roc d’Azur will take place from 10th to 14th October. Four days during which two will be dedicated to the Gravel Origins 83 race. Halfway between a city and a mountain bike, the gravel or adventure road bike must adapt to all types of terrains and the new race involves a 298-kilometre course (with a total elevation climb of 6,000 metres) over a two-day period (12th and 13th October).

This race will not be timed, instead offering riders a chance to spend their time enjoying the stunning landscapes.
