LA ROCHE ON THE MTB


Sportevents, organizer of, among others, the Grand Raid Nisramont, the Houffaraid and the EPIC 200, has created 3 unique mountain bike routes near its HQ, for a total of 60 km of mountain bike fun. The start and finish are located in the nearby village of Maboge, known for its beach. These routes (with the exception of the 8 km expert route) are accessible for all levels. A more than decent basic condition is however recommended!


What to expect:

A unique succession of natural and difficult trackss
Unknown paths and exceptionally authorized passages on one or more private properties
Descents adapted to all levels (choice between difficult and easy)

A choice of 3 beautiful and unique loops of 8 - 22 and 30km that you can combine freely. After the race, an even bigger challenge awaits you: choose from 100 different kinds of beer at Kurt's café den Erpel!
Wim, the designer of these routes, has lived in La Roche for 10 years and knows the forests like no one else. The South Loop even passes his house in Nisramont. It is certain that many parts of the routes will be 100% unknown to most of you. Fans can have a great time on the 8 km expert course and in Nisramont too, there are some nice surprises waiting for you. If you don't like steep descents, you can simply take the indicated detour!

The route consists of three different loops with a start and finish in Maboge at Café den Erpel. 

Choose one of the three loops offered, or combine them as you wish. The southern loop to the Nisramont dam is the most varied and the most beautiful.


The SOUTH loop towards Nisramont & Fily - 30km / 1000 D+ / 87% unpaved


After a long and gradual ascent to Hubermont and a nice descent, you arrive at Nisramont, where a nice loop on a private land is waiting for you. After a passage at the dam, you go up to Fily and Ollemont. After a descent and a technical passage along the Ourthe, you go up to Nadrin to join Hubermont after a fast and rocky descent by a crossing. From there, everything is downhill until Maboge!

When to ride : The best time is between April 1 and September 30. The loop should NOT be done in the winter and during high water levels.


The NORTH loop to Samree : 22km / 700 D+ / 96% unpaved


Everything takes place north of Maboge in the vast forests of Borzée, Samrée and Bérismenil. Many climbs and some steep descents are on the menu. 

When to ride : The best is between April 1st and September 30th. The loop can be walked all year round, except on certain weekends between October 1 and December 31 (hunting) and in case of snow and/or ice.



The EXTREME loop : 8km / 370 D+ / 72% unpaved


For the more hardcore mountain bikers for whom this may be just a little more. 4 technical and steep descents, the last 2 of which are famous and infamous. Expect a lot of rocks, roots and 30%+ percentages. Not for the faint of heart!

When to ride : The best is between April 1st and September 30th. The loop can be walked all year round, except on certain weekends between October 1 and December 31 (hunting) and in case of snow and/or ice.
