The first edition of Panache rally took place in 2020, with the objective of connecting the Grand Départ Tour de France of Brussels 2019 with Nice 2020. We wanted to pay tribute to the first cycling heroes who made the Tour de France in its original format.

Panache is designed as a long distance Brevet without assistance and is inspired by several legendary European races (Ronde van Vlaanderen, Paris-Roubaix, Paris-Nice …), while fostering the values ​​of solidarity which are at the roots of ultra cycling.

The rally goes through several mandatory control points and timed segments all around Belgium, and France.
