The packed weekend programme features several ROC classics like the ROC Marathon, ROC d’Ardenne (a half marathon), the Roc Ruelles, the Rando ROC Noire and the Rando ROC Gourmand. After their successful first appearance at last year’s ROC, the Mid ROC and the Rando ROC Rouge Carnaval return to the schedule. Will you be taking home the title of Roi Carnaval de VTT?
The Night ROC is a new addition to the programme this year. The party starts when the sun goes down! Bring illumination, sign up and soak up the night time atmosphere in the Ardennes woods. The Night ROC will be held as a tour and as a race.
After the premiere at the ROC d’Azur 2016, Houffalize will host its first stage race: the ROC Trophy, for competitive riders. This regularity race consists of Friday’s Night ROC, Saturday’s ROC d?Ardenne and the ROC Marathon on Sunday. At the end of each day, the leader will be celebrated on stage. Fans of the Aredennes Randonnées have a lot to look forward to. The Rando ROC Fun Pack combines the Rando Night ROC, the Rando ROC Rouge Carnaval and the Rando ROC Gourmand in a discounted package deal.
On Saturday and Sunday you will also get the chance to test the latests mountainbike models during the Happy Bike Days, presented by O2 Bikers. If you want to take part, then don’t wait too long to sign up. The number of participants is limited!
Good luck on your training programme this winter. See you in Houffalize on Friday 28 April!
