FIM touring events

The BMF is delighted to announce that we have taken over the handling of the Fédération Internationale de Motocyclisme (FIM) touring events from the Auto Cycle Union (ACU).

The first event is the 39th FIM Motocamp – this one is camping only – from 8-11 June 2022.

It will be held at Le Tiel in France, on the west bank of the river Rhone, 90 miles south of Lyon and just across the river from Montelimar.
The venue is the local rugby club which offers good level camping in a closed, secure location, as well as toilet and shower facilities. The official dates for the rally are from 8th to 11th June, however the site will be open from midday on Monday 6th June and optional excursions for the early arrivals will take place 7th and, 8th with ride outs to local historic sights on both days.

It’s a terrific opportunity to meet with other bikers from all over Europe. Traditionally around 300 riders attend the annual Motocamp and as the last two had to be cancelled due to Covid, there’s
a lot of excitement building for the 2022 event.

The great thing about Motocamp is that, once you arrive at the venue, food and activities and entertainment are all included – all you have to do is pitch your tent.

The fee includes:

  • 3 nights accommodation on the camping site for the duration of the event
  • 3 evening meals
  • 3 breakfasts and 2 lunches
  • Excursion and Parade of Nations
  • Evening entertainment (music, shows)
  • Souvenir medal or pin
