Le Trèfle Lozérien: The Mecca of French Endurocross
Motorcycle off-road endurance (enduro) is a discipline practiced for leisure or in competition. For the latter, competitors must complete a race in a timely manner. This course is mile-stoned by timed races tests that determine the overall ranking.
In 1986, the Moto Club Lozérien imagined an innovative concept that changed the world of off-road endurance, a race over three days, with three circuits in the form of a loop around Mende, a race that gathers professional and amateur riders on a course of 600 km mile-stoned with timed special races, broad times in connection to allow participants to discover and appreciate the lozerian landscapes, far from the constraints and stress of championships, giving birth to the Trèfle Lozérien AMV, the first classic off-road endurance competition. This event quickly became successful and inspired other events including the Grappe de Cyrano, the Aveyronnaise Classic and the Val de Lorraine Classic. Today, the event welcomes 600 participants from all over Europe and registrations, traditionally taking place one evening in January or February at 11.00PM on the internet, are fully booked in less than 5 minutes.
Since 2018, the Trèfle Lozérien AMV is member of the WESS (World Enduro Super Series), a new international challenge of 8 races around the world.
