The Gravel Night, what’s on?
Like the Gravel spirit, the night-time challenge breaks free from the codes of cycling. Meet and chat with the riders in the first part of the evening around a friendly Pasta Party to gain strength and talk about tubeless tires (or beers, or weather, your choice!). Between dusk and dawn, the go-ahead of the Gravel Night will be given from the nautical base of the Maine Lake. Regarding the playing field, you can expect dirt, gravel and trails along Lake Maine, all under a starry sky: lighting not optional! Dear riders, you will perform a total of 4 rounds, each time passing through the Gravel Festival to enjoy the rhythm of the music! During this passage, teams of 4 riders will be able to take advantage to swap the riders in the heart of the paddocks: but beware the team always has a duo in the race and this duo always rides together; that’s team spirit! It’s up to you to manage the order of the relays. For their part, solo participants will have the opportunity to stop at the ravito or technical assistance space Shimano Services Center. Finally, an explosive arrival is planned on the village to take advantage of the fervour of the public. And what about continuing the evening between riders over a good beer?
