L’ESSENTIEL DES COMBES
This route leaves quietly in the middle of the vineyards to join the first combe at Saint Hippolyte. From there, you attack a succession of descents and climbs mixing vines, undergrowth, technical trails and zones where you try to recover. A demanding course but which will make you discover a superb panorama on the vineyards of Saint Emilion.

L’INTÉGRALE DES COMBES
This course takes the same start as the circuit of 14 km but quickly forks towards a first difficulty which will make you discover a new combe offering a panorama towards the Dordogne. After that, you will continue the climbs and descents with new areas open for the occasion. At three quarters of the circuit, once at the foot of the gates of the city of the monk Emilion you will still have to fight against the percentage of the last combes to rally the finish.
