LA BAROUDEUSE REMAINS OPEN TO ALL MOTIVES

No La Baroudeuse clearly does not set up a selection in order to start the elite from the ultra, no this is not our goal, it is expressed in the regulations and on the website.
Six years of experience now in the organization of La Baroudeuse, so six years of observation which allowed us to see that the best profiles were not necessarily the best cyclists on our routes. Many turned out to be finishers because they had the skills, the will, the morale that allowed them to go to the end of the Adventure. The ultimate desire to be a finisher without any notion of performance led them to brandish the rudius.
La Baroudeuse is an extreme mountain adventure and even more so when you go up in distance. And the further you go, the more we want to make sure that you don't start by chance.
La Baroudeuse is a path that can also start with short distances that will make your CV of experience for future years. We are not closed!
Moreover, really motivated people do not hesitate to contact us and discuss what clearly proves a mental commitment from the start, well done that's what we are looking for.
We clearly want to pave the way for selection with diverse and varied sporting profiles. As indicated, you do not have to have only experience in cycling since we all have a different journey and in the end a very rich and complementary experience, just put it forward.
It is clear that the way we look at your file will be different if you want to participate in the 317K unpaved - 400K on the road or in the TransAlpes 2850K or 1000K unpaved.
Our goal is not only to look at your physical level but also your reactions to a given situation and also your motivation to want to participate.
People who turn back at the mere fact of being confronted with the registration stage are somewhere not ready for the adventures of La Baroudeuse.
Show us your motivation, enlighten us on your intention and the commitment that drives you to participate.
We want your experience and your investment to be complete. We are not mistaken, believe us because you will clearly live an extraordinary Adventure which will have no equal in Europe.

Yes, you can register as a team of two cyclists. The DUO will have to travel the entire trail together.

The Rudius Challenge concerns the most extreme and versatile Adventurers of ultra-endurance.
Find information about the Rudius Challenge here.

Any participant in the Challenge will receive a registration number that they will keep on each event.

The road bike is the right bike to participate in the adventure. Choose a section of comfort tires from 28. However, the choice of bike is personal to you.

For the Magnus, note that it is possible in Slovenia and parts of Austria and Italy to ride on clean gravel tracks.

In terms of gear, focus on comfort. Go with an adapted development planned for the mountain with loaded bikes and an organism that will tire over the days.

As an example, the maximum to mount for very good cyclists is a 34 (chainring) x 36 (rear cassette). We advise you to mount very flexible gears to go everywhere. Having a bad development can ruin your adventure! With a good gear, we go around the world ...
The idea is not to be able to ride very quickly with your development, on the contrary, it is to be able to go everywhere in the mountains without suffering. Don't think like a typical cyclist.

It is important that you plan the necessary before arriving at the village. You have to be autonomous from the start in order to avoid unpleasant surprises.

Nevertheless, there are many restaurants nearby to eat the day before your departure + 2 bakeries + village fountain.

Nice airport is located 25K - 500d + from the host village.

The nearest train station is 18K - 500d + from the host village.

Note that the village is 500m above sea level. You will therefore have a climb to come and a descent for the return.
