Race Across France 2021 | Holyfat

Race Across France : 2024 in preparation !

In just a few months' time, the Race Across France returns with a 2024 edition that promises some great adventures!

Experience, effort and surpassing oneself are our core values. Holyfat took part in the Race Across France in 2021, the first ultra-cycling event in the country that gave birth to the Tour de France. The Race Across France offers a fabulous 2,600 km challenge, in keeping with some of the most memorable moments in our history.

The race starts in Lille B'twin village and finishes on the Mediterranean beaches of Mandelieu la Napoule. The route takes in numerous mountain passes and crosses up to 24 different départements, depending on the distance.

Also in 2022, Olivier Maria and Alvaro Madrazo took part in the RAF 2600 and RAF 1000 respectively. The Race Across France adventure, an adventure with shared values with Holyfat!

Partners of the RAF, Holyfat was present at the start in Mandelieu and on the two points of life, Saint Didier and Saint-Jean-en-Royans.

How to approach this RAF without talking about the outstanding performances of our Holyfat ambassadors? An edition particularly marked by strong heat making the food a real challenge.

Pierre Lugat and Soralia set a new record for the relay event, with assistance, by completing the 2,600 km in 4 days, 9 hours and 11 minutes.

Thomas Hemelsdael won the 500 km and also set a new event record in 21h06.

Olivier Maria and Flavien Slordel completed the 2,600 km of the RAF in 7d17h28min and 8d3h respectively.

In 2022, Alvaro Madrazo signed up for a memorable adventure.

Laughter, tears, moments of doubt... more than a simple race, this RAF was a real human adventure.

All the Holyteam thanks you for these moments of emotion and see you in Lille for the 2024 edition of the Race Across France!
