The schedule includes 30 different races, to cover different disciplines and levels.

Cycling products in the village
In its 30 year history the event has grown and become big also as far as numbers are concerned, and this is also due to the exhibitory village that accompanies the event, and which attracts thousands of visitors (about 150,000) every year. Very wide and varied is the offer of the village, which can count on many exhibitors (300) coming from different countries. It’s in the village that bike lovers can find many different cycling products, visiting the stalls dedicated to all the aspects of this sport, from accessories to food, from press to tourism, but the village is also the place where a very useful service centre is active, a benchmark for participants that need any type of information about the event.
Roc d’Azur is a complete and important event, and Gist is proud to take part in it as exhibitor in the village. Come and meet us!
