Since 1984, Fréjus has hosted the Roc d'Azur in October, the world's largest mountain bike event. Thousands of enthusiasts meet each year for this great sporting gathering. This extraordinary event, which in just over 20 years has become the queen of all-terrain cycling.
In 1984, at a time when no one was talking about mountain biking yet, seven riders, led by Stéphane Hauvette (future president of the national mountain bike commission at the FFC), decided to challenge themselves in mountain biking. No one suspected as they kicked off one of mountain biking's greatest events.
There are now more than 20,000 participants, amateurs and professionals of all ages, lining up at the start of the various races on offer. The success of the Roc d'Azu r lies essentially in the choice and variety of the courses of the events. The varied and magnificent routes make this annual meeting the finest mountain bike event bringing together both the world's best specialists in the discipline and nature and mountain bike enthusiasts.
Fréjus, Roquebrune-sur-Argens, Sainte Maxime and now Saint-Raphaël (via the Massif de l'Estérel) , will live again this year to the rhythm of the Roc d'Azur. For five days, from October 7 to 11, many activities will be offered on the various sites of the Fréjus nature base, (BMX shows and contests on ramps with bump jumps and tricks, Dirt, etc.).
