The Races

Discover the 2022 calendar of the BikingMan Origine series

The BikingMan ultracycling races are unassisted (without external assistance). This is the ultimate endurance challenge for athletes that are ready to cycle unassisted in all kinds of terrain and weather conditions.

The 2022 season will feature 5 stages in France and 2 international stages. Alongside Portugal and Brazil, it will be a total of 7 sprint races and for the first time, Portugal will open the series, bringing a different visual experience with more vivid colors and a richer vegetation.
Join the 2022 BikingMan Origine series to get this new experience of Portugal, to be captivated by the incredible landscapes of Corsica, to discover the treasures of the South-East, to explore the rich geology of AURA, to face the wilderness of the Basque Country and to venture into the rich biodiversity and raw nature of Brazil.
All the ingredients are again gathered to live epic adventures.

To be ranked in the 2022 Series, you will need to be “finisher” on a minimum of 2 (two) BikingMan races.
