Bol D'or 2010
The usual Relais Motards Calmos, motorcycle rest places (for those of you who need to ride long distance, and need a place to calm down, tank up, re-energize or just meet up with fellow bikers), will be present before and after the Bol d'Or Open link in a new window motorcycle race held at the Magny-Cours Nevers circuit.. (see the related articles below to see what a Relais Calmos looks like)

Some offer food, drinks, mechanics, massage or even sleeping arrangements. This service is offered, for free, by the French Government and the FFMCFederation Francaise des Motards en Colere - Angry French Biker Association, an association of bikers fighting for the rights of motorcycle riders.

So here are the motorcycle rest stops (called Relais Calmos Motards) for the Bol D'Or motorcycle race held 11-12 September.
