Gravel

Having doubled its numbers in 2024 (to 800 participants), the event’s Gravel courses continue to build their reputation and establish themselves as a national benchmark in the field.

On the route, the Voie Verte Paris Lyon Marseille, its tunnels, and the kilometres of forest paths on the heights of the limestone retreats of Baume-les-Messieurs still provide the same sense of wonder. While these key points will remain in 2025, the routes on offer will change slightly. Head south of Lons-le-Saunier to explore some new routes!

A mix of forest tracks and farm roads. A change of scenery guaranteed!

With total autonomy by bike (GPS track) now in vogue, the organisers have decided to launch a new ‘ULTRA’ format perfectly suited to the terrain of the Jura. The ‘DISCOVERY’ format makes the discipline accessible to all.

NB: e-bikes (in touring mode, with no ranking) are permitted.
