The Jolidon Classic
"There are many reasons why I travel such a long way with my wife for the "classic": the Jura people are wonderfully welcoming, the organiser is an old-school enthusiast, the landscapes are magnificent, the route is a "battleground" that can become a terrible ordeal when the weather plays tricks on us, the race is well organised, the registration fee is tiny compared to the experience on offer and, what's more, it is a pleasure to see the Jolidon family again once a year. I can only advise you to come next year."
Maryvonne and Michel Favre, LAUSANNE
