What is a Raudax?

Description  Team Format  Route  Registration Helping Others FAQs

The RotD is part Randonnee, part Audax (latin for the audacious). Randonnees are typically ridden solo or in small groups. Audax events are ridden in large groups with a capitaine de route controlling the pace. Our first RotD was like that. With the team format we can incorporate the "allure libre" (free speed) format, thus mixing Audax and Randonnee genres. The result: Raudax (Road-axe). In Quebec, randosportif is the name used for a similar format, but without the team requirement.
