"Foire de la St Grégoire" - 4th and 5th September 2010

This is an annual fair which is organized the 1st weekend of September every year. (St Gregory is Ernée's patron saint). The aim of the Saint Grégoire Committee is to join together the representatives of several associations. Various local businesses and craftspeople take the opportunity to advertise their products on the many different stalls throughout the town.  There are also exhibitions of the local hunts, classic and vintage cars and bikes and, of course, the cattle show.

Official Poster

This year Ernée is hosting the 5th round of the championship. Over 150 riders of MX1 and MX2 are expected to be taking part. Mickaël Pichon - champion in both 2001 and 2002 - and the current leader, Marvin Musquin, have both confirmed their entry.

The event starts at 11 o'clock on Saturday 12 with the rider's briefing, and trials and racing commence at 12:35, continuing until 18:35. Racing on Sunday is from 9:15 to 18:05 with a lunch break from 11:35 to 13:30. The Podium is scheduled for 18:10.
Entry on Saturday is free and 17 euros pre-booked on the Sunday. Under 14 year olds have free entry for the whole weekend.
There are only 2 more rounds after this to decide the final placings, so competition should be fierce.

After a break in 2008, World Championship Motocross returned to Ernée in 2009 with the running of the Men's World Individual Championships in MX1 and MX2 together with Women's World Championships. The event was held on 6 and 7 June. Results for past events can be found on the bikers page as well as pictures from the final world championship event of 2006 held in Ernée.

Tour de France 2010

The 97th Tour de France is being held this year from July 3rd to July 26th. Starting at Rotterdam and finishing at the Champs Elysée in Paris, it consists of 20 stages and covers 3 600 kilometres. Although the closest point to Ernée this year will be Bordeaux, the peleton and, of course, the caravane, are well worth travelling to see.

In 2006, the Tour actually came through Ernée and the town was closed to traffic for the whole afternoon, ensuring a safe view of the awesome spectacle, with a real carnival atmosphere.
