Roll’Athlon100 is an adventure. Those who did it in 2019, as well as any other edition know it well. From Ewen Fernandez and Flavie Balandras, winners of this 2019 edition toward any skater, skier or volunteers, we face ourself. Alone, sometimes, but mostly supported, would it be by a friend, a pack or a volunteer.
This spirit is the one that takes all actors, whatever its role in the event. All dimensions of the Roll’Athlon100 can be set only all together.
Thank you all for this new edition
Hélène, Margaux, Dominique, Françoise, Fanny, Cléophée, Didier, Thierry, Francis & Julien thank you for taking part and for your commitment to this adventure

DETAILED INSTRUCTIONS WITH RESPECT TO ROUTE CHANGE
Back to Seyssel shuttles:
From Yenne (finish 37km) -> Brens (finish 67km) when all athletes have reached Yenne
From Brens (finish 67km) -> Corbonod (finish 103km – Village) when all athletes have reached Brens. Depending on the number of athletes in the bus, it will either return directly to Corbonod or follow the end of the 103km to pick up dropped out athletes. The coach should reach Corbonod between 13.00 and 13.30.
From Corbonod (finish 103km – Village, Award ceremony) -> Seyssel (car parks): the coach will take athletes to Seyssel from 13.30 when full and come back as long as needed.
Small shuttles from Corbonod to Seyssel may be implemented for quick transfer of 103km skaters.
Bags for Personnal Belongings
Every athlete will receive a colored “garbage bag” (color depends on the distance you skate), for the transfer of its personnal belongings from Seyssel to the correct finish line. You must drop off this bag before 7.00 in the “Seyssel Car”s coach, in Seyssel.
WARNING: you will not be able to drop your stuffs and the start line in Motz.
The coach will then drop the bags off in Corbonod, Brens and Yenne, so that you can find them on your respective finish lines. Take care to put all your stuff within the bag for easy recognition and drop-off.
You will also receive a sticker with your bib number, to stick on your bag.
We want to remind you that followers are forbidden, whether car or cycles. This may induce severe security problems and endanger the event itself.
Water & Food Stations:
The firts WFS will be on km22 (Chanaz), and the second on km37 (Yenne). We advice most athletes to start with their own drink, and for less fast ones, maybe some food or energy bars.
From there, WFS will be more frequent: 45, 54, 67, 74, 78, 82, 90
Village & Meals:
Race Office, pasta-party & breakfast: route d’Aix-Les-Bains,74910 Seyssel. WARNING: bib pick-up will only be in Seyssel, and not in Motz (start line)
Start line: Espace Sport et Nature du Fier, 73310 MOTZ, 3km from Seyssel. We strongly advice you to skate/ski there from Seyssel, as a nice wamr-up. Shuttles from the finiish line will actually drop you off in Seyssel, not in Motz.
Village, refreshment & food bar, stands, awards ceremony, chip return: Gignez, 01420 Corbonod. Accompanying people will not be allowed to reach the finish line by the Roll’Athlon100 route. Some road signs will be there to reach the Village from Seyssel.
Please find HERE the route for reaching the village from Seyssel.
Local Changes on the Roll’Athlon100 Route
Some public works on the Roll’Athlon100 route lead to some route changes, which are mostly good news for you 🙂
Change 1: a very nice pedestrians & bike bridge is being build close to km40. We cannot use some part of the cycling road there. The standard road will then be used resulting in a 2km shortcut.
Change 2: for those who are used to Roll’Athlon100 we will take a brand new cycling path instead of standard road at km68, which road quality was not very good.
Change 3: the most critical change concerns the last 3km. Due to heavy work on the bridge crossing the road 500m before the finish line, we cannot maintain it in Seyssel. The finish will thus be in Corbonod. The last downhill will disappear and will be transformed in a 2.7km down & up finish route
So the final distance should will be between 100 & 101km, but the very end will be tougher
The Village and the award ceremony will thus be transfered to Corbonod as well. The welcoming desk of saturday, late registrations, bib pick, the pasta-party and sunday morning breakfast will be maintained in Seyssel. You will be able to drop a bag in Seyssel before the start and it will be transfered to the finish place. A shuttle system will be implemented to take you back to Seyssel after your arrival.
