1ST WORLD AGRICULTURAL CYCLING COMPETITION
In the heart of Burgundy-Franche-Comté
June 7th-8th 9th 2024
For the first time in the agricultural world!
Welcome to the official website of the very first Agricultural Cycling World Competition!
It is with immense joy and true pride that we invite you to this unique event dedicated to the exciting world of agriculture and sport.
When talking about road cycling, the values that spontaneously spring to mind are self-improvement, discipline, hard work and, of course, passion. These values naturally resonate with those of the agricultural world.
The innovative idea of this World Competition of Cycling in Agriculture took root thanks to the collaboration between two major players in the agricultural world: Alliance BFC and the Champagne-Bourgogne and Franche-Comté regional banks of Crédit Agricole, under the driven by Pascal Choffez, experienced organizer of several international sports competitions. The cooperative spirit that unites these two institutions made this collaboration obvious, with the essential support of SCO Dijon, a renowned cycling club in Burgundy Franche-Comté, organizer of numerous regional races.
We look forward to welcoming you in June 2024 in the heart of the Côte de Nuits vineyard, a stone’s throw from Clos-de-Vougeot, for this sporting and friendly event!
