Next 55th Neige & Glace rally will run from Sunday 22nd to Wednesday 25th 2009 - Threee laps of a new route in the nice landscapes of Jura, Bugey, Ain and Doubs

 

NEW LOCATION, NEW DATES, NEW REGULATIONS

 

2009 ushers in a whole new era: the Jura… Classic!

Emphasizing authenticity & seduction

 

This coming February 22-25, the Neige & Glace Rally (Snow & Ice)will enter an exciting new era. The 55th edition of this not-to-be-missed winter event, an absolute ‘must’ for all true fans of beautiful machines and slippery trails, has completely revamped its ‘playground’. This year, we’ll be exploring the tiny back roads of the Jura and Doubs regions. There we’ll discover the many marvels of this French version of Finland. After 5 years of wonderful adventures through the Alpine mountains and across the Vercors, the Snow & Ice Rally is now ready to offer its loyal participants a taste of something new. So prepare for exhilarating new horizons! The 55th edition of this great tradition will host a full array of refreshing elements, based on the feedback we received from you all last year.

 

2009 will indeed be a year of many new aspects for the Snow & Ice Rally, to keep everyone on their toes and begging for more! The main change, of course, will be the decor. Instead of the Alps, we’ll hit the Doubs and the Jura, probing deep into the many nooks and crannies of the secluded back roads, often covered in snow! The scenery is guaranteed to enchant all who venture this way. This winter wonderland borders on Switzerland a mere 500 km from Paris and not quite 500 km from Brussels. The Doubs area is located in Franche Comté and shares the same capital, Besançon. Endowed with gloriously preserved wilderness, the Jura’s neighbor offers a host of exciting peaks, including the Mont d’Or which tops off at 1,463 m and the Morond (1,419 m).
