What do custom bike builders, off-road racers, surfers and skaters all have in common? They are all incredibly committed to their respective passions. Every year, in Biarritz on the shores of the Atlantic Ocean, a celebration of that passion takes place, bringing together enthusiasts from all corners of the world. It’s an unmissable spectacle and Motul is delighted to be a part of it.
The world of motorcycles, skaters and surfers!
For five days, the worlds of motorcycles, skaters and surfers come together and set up camp at the Cité de l’Océan, a beautifully peaceful spot looking out over the Atlantic. They show off their newest creations, discover each other’s creativity, enjoy great music and just generally hang out together.
It’s not all just relaxation, though. Visitors with motorbikes get a choice of routes, taking them either along the coastline or into the hills above. All along the route there are different events such the Punks Peak spent race, where legends like Troy Corser go flat out along mountain roads. And if off-road action is more your thing, then the El Rollo speedway race or the Swank Rally might be more to your liking.
The highlight of the event is the art ride contest. Bike builders and artists put their heads and their hands together to create the ultimate custom motorbike, and of course it’s a work of art in its own right.
