ROC DES ALPES – LA CLUSAZ 12-14 june 2015 A weekend that will hit the heights

From 12th to 14th June 2015, 5,000 mountain-biking enthusiasts will come to participate in the third edition of Roc des Alpes – La Clusaz and enjoy an intense experience in the Aravis Mountains and the imposing setting of Haute-Savoie.

Key points

  • Registrations on the increase
  • An enhanced sporting programme
  • A tougher E-Roc for fans of electrically-assisted mountain biking
  • Sport, service and activities in keeping with the Roc spirit

Only three months left to wait… Three months to imagine riding along the tracks of Roc des Alpes – La Clusaz, for the third edition of an event that has become one of the major meetings of the mountain-biking season. The registrations launched on 12th January have met with considerable success in light of the 25% increase in relation to the 2014 edition. Once again, it promises to be a spectacular and intense occasion for all the participants, who will also be able to take advantage of a free pass to enjoy the Alpine tracks of La Clusaz once the Roc has finished.

In sporting terms, on a programme boasting twenty events, all riders will find their heart’s desire regardless of their level and discipline (with rides, cross-country, endurance and downhill events). With now two EnduRoc races on Friday and Saturday, as well as heats for an Urban Super Special on Sunday, extreme thrill seekers will be especially spoiled for choice this year.

Those who think that the booming discipline of electric mountain-biking is an easy option are likely to be surprised. The E-Roc will challenge such pre-conceived ideas. With its 38 km and almost 2,000 elevation gain to tackle, the E-Roc is a very demanding and sporty race for its participants. The reward for such efforts is access to portions where traditional mountain bikes cannot go.

Whilst the Roc des Alpes on Sunday 14th June (51 km, 2,000 m elevation gain) will be the leading event of the weekend, the Roc Marathon (80 km, 3,170 m elevation gain) on Saturday will send its participants to the Col des Aravis pass with its unique view of Mont-Blanc, providing even greater opportunities of discovery and thrills.

The Col de Merdassier and Col de la Croix-Fry passes, La Ferriaz slope, Plateau de Beauregard, Champ Giguet and Crêt du Merle ridge are all spots that are becoming essential landmarks in the world of mountain-biking. These are places where the participants of the next Roc des Alpes – La Clusaz will once again experience unique thrills with, once again, the quality of service and events that have built the reputation of the Roc.
