What there is to know !
One of the original features of the Gravel Trophy route :
It will not be revealed until 5 days before the event !
As a participant you will receive your invitation with all the information on the organization of the weekend.
Timetables, passage checks, but also a detailed description of all the trails, villages and historic monuments that you will come across on your journey.
Traveling is above all knowing the history and culture of the paths taken !
The route will not be marked in "wild" mode with km of tapes! Aiming to organize an "Eco Friendly" event, we will mark out and be present at points along the route.
In addition, each participant will receive a roadbook and the link to download the track into their GPS. If you are not equipped, our partner GARMIN offers you a VIP discount code to get your next toy as soon as possible !
Finally, to stay in the spirit of discovery and adventure, while ensuring the safety of participants, several strategic checkpoints will segment the route and volunteers will be placed at the main intersections to secure your passages.
