The Race Calendar

Discover the 2023 BikingMan Origine season

BikingMan ultracycling races are meant to take you back to the essence of cycling: self-supported (no external assistance), no stage and beautiful natural environments.

The BikingMan Series is the 1st World Ultracycling championship, with races in many locations, the ultimate endurance challenge for athletes ready to cycle unassisted in all kinds of terrain and weather conditions.

The 2023 Championship will again feature 7 stages opening with the spring warmth of Portugal, exploring the most epic regions of France and closing with Brazil and the dreadful Atlantic forest.
To enter the championship rankings, participants need to complete 2 sprint events of the Series.

Gravel cyclists will also be able to discover the 555 events series, including the 2nd edition of the 555 Vercors.

Note: the 2023 calendar still has some secrets and surprises to reveal. Keep an eye on this page to discover what’s coming!
