The registration capacity for this return has been increased from 40 to 60 and all seats were sold within two hours. As noted by Benoît Bloquet, vice-president of the Transes de Marie-Grauette association, even after two empty years, the faithful were still there. ” We’ve seen more than half of the participants from other releases come back, which is great. We also see locals coming to try and discover this race “.
The idea of this bistro cyclo-cross world championship came from the members of the Car Podium, an organizing association that includes real lovers of the little queen, in particular the Chasses-Patates group. They decided to embark on this adventure almost ten years ago after discovering a report from the Stade 2 program about a bistro competition filmed in Flanders.
Rudy Gallien won
The Ronde de Tartous embraced these ingredients with the authenticity of a 600-meter course, mud, and a stroll past a bistro bar. The participants had to go through qualifications in the morning, and in the afternoon the semi-finals and the grand final, which saw Rudy Gallien win the race in the cyclo-cross category.
The event was, above all, meant to be a party in an atmosphere comparable to the Belgian races, with music and fries and two colorful speakers, Jean-Paul Cheyne and Patrick Chapatte, who animated the day with passion.
