GRAVEL FONDO

Imagine this: gravel roads and trails all to yourself; a 90 km course through the Tremblant backcountry and Parc national du Mont-Tremblant with nary a car in sight; a sporting challenge and wild landscapes; food and beverage aid stations; swimming break along the way; and a party at the end!

 

Whether you’re an old hand in our Gran Fondo, a diehard gravel rider or just curious to see what it’s all about, be among the first cyclists to take part in this epic adventure.

RULES

Road bikes are accepted, but we highly recommend a minimum of traction and tires 28-35mm wide to reduce flat tires risks throughout the race. 

Some sections of the course, namely the ones in the National Park of Mont-Tremblant, might not have cellular reception.

Mechanical services will be available at aid stations and where vehicles will have access to the course. However, participants are expected to be semi-autonomous should they face a flat, a chain breakage, etc. The participant must inform the organization if anything happens on the course in order for our medical and mechanical teams to assess the situation properly.
