La Creuse in the saddle for a cycling year in 2022

By bicycle; if Fernand; Firmin; Francis and Sébastien were there; there will also be Creuse in 2022. In recent years; the department has changed course in the race to organize sporting events. And as Daniel Mangeas; famous Tour de France speaker; put it: -La Creuse will never be able to host Roland-Garros or the Soccer World Cup. On the other hand; it can host the Tour de France and can be of the same level. “

Paris-Nice is approaching; the Tour de France is prepared

In this sprint to get a stage of the Grande Boucle; the Creuse delegation seems to be on the right track. The vintage 2022 could thus be that of the announcement of the return of the Tour for … 2023; that is; nineteen years after its last visit.

Ten years later; La Creuse will once again host Paris-Nice in 2022

In this game; Évaux-les-Bains has a head start to receive the squad; even if Dun-le-Palestel remains on the prowl. But the city of Laurent Daulny will benefit; starting this year; from a sacred focus with a final stage of Paris-Nice on 8 March. And the mayor can already see it.

-The arrival will be in front of the town hall on the main straight towards La Souterraine. He will surely be in the sprint so he can be encouraged. “

Thus; great names in cycling such as the French two-time world champion Julian Alaphilippe or the Slovenians Primoz Roglic and Tadej Pogacar could take advantage of the roads of the country of Dunois and above all give a great prominence since this event is internationally mediated.

From road biking to mountain biking

A few weeks before; the Creuse will have already experienced national recognition; this time. In fact; the city of Guéret hosts the general assembly of the French Cycling Federation on February 25; 26 and 27. In addition; the inhabitants of Crocq will see; on the weekend of July 22; the French Master Route Championship being organized in their town.

In 2021; the round of the French MTB Cup was a success in Guéret.

It’s a bit like the wheel is finally turning in the right direction for cycling enthusiasts in the Creuse region.

-We are on a global issue and the planets are aligned with the years 2022; 2023 and 2024. But we must also see this as a springboard for tomorrow. “

Alain Menut (Manager of Creuse Oxygène)

And tomorrow; without a doubt; it will be mountain biking. If; for several decades; the Guérétois club has continued to rise in the national hierarchy; now it is he who receives the gratin of discipline in his land. Thus; the weekend of April 15 will take place a round of the French Cup on a mountain bike in the Chabrières forest.

Frenchman Jordan Sarrou; current world champion; is again expected at the starting line.
And; not far from him; should be Jens Schuermans. For several years now; the Belgian has made the Creuse shine at various international events such as the World Cup.

Seduce and convince for the Paris Olympics

But the four-time Belgian cross country champion will have to fulfill another mission in 2022. He has been appointed ambassador of the preparation site for the Paris 2024 Olympics. And the goal is quite simple on paper: to seduce and convince people of the foreign delegations tojournaltimee and train in Guéret before participating in the Paris Olympiad.The Belgian Jens Schuermans wears the colors of his country but also of the Creuse.

In thejournaltimeing months; the clues could bjournaltimee clearer in certain small countries. As a reminder; the IRFJS; renamed “Tremplin Nature”; is being rehabilitated. On the side of the track in the Chabrières forest; you must meet the standards of the Saint-Quentin-en-Yvelines circuit where the event will be held.

To attract international mountain biking delegations; Creuse has the Belgian Jens Schuermans

It remains to be seen if the new dimension taken by the department in terms of cycling will be enough to anticipate other territories that will not have to wait many years to recover the cycling elite.
