The challenge of night racers
Specific to the Gravel culture, this nocturnal challenge breaks free from the codes of cycling. The top start of the Gravel Night will be given at the heart of the Gravel Festival Nature is Bike. On the terrain, you have to expect dirt, gravel and paths, all under a starry sky: lighting is therefore obligatory and not optional! Dear racers, you will ride several laps, each time with a relay passage in the heart of the Gravel Festival to vibrate to the rhythm of the music! During this passage, the racers in teams will pass the relay on the paddock. For the racers in teams of 4, there will always be a duo in the race and this duo will always ride together: that’s what team spirit is all about!
At each passage, the solo participants can, if they wish, stop at the paddock in the Technical Assistance area. Finally, a festive arrival is planned in the heart of the Gravel Festival to take advantage of the fervour of the public. And why not continue the evening between racers to toast to the winners! You will soon find more information about the Gravel Night event: registration, license plate collection, equipment check-up (this is carried out before the start of the race, as there are no breakdown service posts on the course, except for Technical Assistance in the paddock), optional bike deposit and compulsory briefing before the night race. Attention: this challenge is not open to mountain bikes.
