    Discover one of the most important custom culture events in France


    • Takes place on the 12th, 13th and 14th June 2015
    • Valloire, a beautiful mountain village, hosts over 17,000 bikers
    • ‘The place to be’ for custom culture fans
    Fans of custom culture: you cannot miss Punta Bagna in France in June.

    For the past six years, bikers have ridden to Punta Bagna in Valloire on twisty mountain roads to experience an unforgettable three days. This year will be no exception.

    Punta Bagna first started to draw in international visitors in 2013 and last year more than 17,000 visitors attended, coming from all corners of Europe, as the event starts to make a name for itself as ‘the place to be’ for custom culture.

    Many biking brands have formed partnerships with Punta Bagna over time, with Victory Motorcycles now a major supporter. Punta Bagna is also the first big event for the Victory Riders Association (VRA) this year.

    A highlight of the event is a 20km ride out to the Galibier pass (2,640m) and one of the rules for those entering the ‘best bike’ competition is that they have to bring a machine that can actually be ridden to the pass.

    As well as the ride out, visitors get to wander the streets of this beautiful mountain resort, which are lined either side with bikes, drink and food stands while loud music is played, all coming together to create an incredible atmosphere.

    Here is the program for Victory Motorcycles over the weekend:

    Friday 12th:

    • Welcome to all on the VICTORY Roadshow truck
    • Welcome pack*
    • 1800 Mountain Apero with local Bière du Galibier*
    • 2000 Big Tartiflette of Savoie*
    • Concert of Punta Bagna
    Saturday 13th:

    • Coffee from 0900 on the VICTORY Roadshow truck
    • Victory Big Twin’s Road Book offered*
    • Test rides on offer
    • 1800 Mountain Apero with local Bière du Galibier*
    • Concert of Punta Bagna
    *For VRA members (and friends) who have paid their VRA subscription for 2015
