Wat temp in june approx 23 degrees celsius
bike: 20k flat until Saint-Laurent du Var, then a
very hilly course but not very steep, many guys
sucking your wheels despite the referees, the
road is not always very good, but the place is beautiful
(check  while training not during the race...)
the 20 last km are flat to go back to promenade des anglais.
usually sunny in june.
Run: flat, flat, desperatly flat...along the seashore.
the easiest 30k in the area...

wetsuits are allowed
 (you can enter until mid april)

PS watch out the motorbikes of the referees, they have the bad
habits to cut your trajectory on the bike...I know it...
