Welcome to our very special rocky mountain!

LaRoccaXC is a private mountain bike school located in Val-des-Monts, Québec, and 20 minutes from Gatineau. It is owned by Dominique Larocque, a professional coach and retired two-time National team athlete (XC mountain biking, inline skating).

Since 2003, this little rocky mountain (123 m of elevation) is being purposefully carved, 100% sustainably.

So far, we have succeeded in carving 26 km of technical single track and two integrated pump tracks under a 108 acres Laurentian forest canopy. The school operates from April to November.

Our mission is simple: help you build confidence on your bike!

We love customizing! Contact us today!

We teach you on the trails we have designed and carved with one intention: YOUR PROGRESS.
