ULTRA RAID 360 KM (English version)

The principle
Real mountain-biking challenge in Normandy at DOMFRONT (61700) : 360 kilometers (223 miles) in single loop on a circuit with a loop of 180 kilometers.
The bike ride will start on saturday 20 of June 2020 at 6:00 am in Domfront and will finish throughout sunday 21 of June until 6:00 pm, because there is a limited time of 36 hours to complete the 360 kilometers (223 miles).

There are three possibilities to do this long ride :
– If you like biking, if you feel ultra caster, and if you want to discover your limits, even to push them, this ultra raid is for you.
– If you want to bike longer than you do it usually, come with a friend and do the 360 km in a 2 x 180 km relay.
– If you want to have fun with your friends during this beautiful week-end, but you are not sure to be able to bike these exceptional distances, do the race in a 4 x 90km relay.
One thing is sure, you will find your happiness.

This ride is not a race, it’s a bike ride with a finishing time for each participant in the style of the Paris-Brest-Paris ride.

The course

The great innovation of our ultra raid is a circuit with loops of 90 km, yes 90 km. To do the 360 km, you have to start first with the west loop which takes you to Mortain. Then the east loop will take you in the opposite side to Bagnoles-de-l’Orne. When this second loop will be finished, the course will resume these two loops, but turning in the opposite direction. Throughout the entire ride, there will be about 6000m elevation gain.

This course is divided into several sections of 30 km, and at the end of each section there is a service area to get fresh supplies, to rest and also to take a shower.

Each time is recorded every 30 kms. you can follow in real time. see the table of time
