" It is the 40th edition of the " 160km of Florac "!!

With the two days of Montcuq, they are the only races that were organized every year since their creation, each with their identity, their specificity! But with a little step back it is difficult to dissociate them from the history of the French endurance.

In this "historic" context it is difficult also to forget those who disappeared, I think of Cherveux and Allan. These four races were for a long time the only playground of the riders, the organizers, the breeders, the leaders and the veterinarians. Thank to all of these initiators, today we can notice the evolution of the discipline.

This year it is my 16th participation as president of the organization of the race.

The Lozère Endurance Equestre association always tried to push it up. I would have wished I could gather a majority of these "pioneers" together for this birthday, but the financial context of this year (important disengagement of the Region Languedoc-Roussillon, and of the National park of the Cévennes) contrain us to get only the essential.

A big thank you at the Sultanate of Oman, which is this year still the essential partner of the races of Lozère Endurance Equestre. "
