Of course, we could have told you about the Football World Cup in Qatar or the Olympic and Paralympic Winter Games which will take place in China. But other than having a big bank account (and time), you probably won't be able to attend these events. Do not panic ! France, in 2022, will welcome 5 sporting events not to be missed! Your attractive title

Many Breton sports will be in the spotlight, but not only that. The organizer promises many related activities for the less adventurous! The finals will take place on the last weekend… These Bretons are crazy!

BMX WORLD CHAMPIONSHIPS (NANTES)
Location : Nantes
Dates : July 26 to 31, 2022
Nantes, capital of sport in July! After the Brittany Games, Nantes will host the BMX World Championships at the end of the month. This event will be organized at the Beaujoire exhibition center and will be able to accommodate more than 7,000 spectators per day.

WORLD TRACK CYCLING CHAMPIONSHIPS
(SAINT QUENTIN EN YVELINES)
Location : Saint Quentin En Yvelines
Dates : October 12 to October 16
No Tour de France, we know it too well. And then it's July, and we have bigger fish to fry than spending our day waiting for cyclists to pass by. 70 km/h . No, what we are suggesting is that you go to the Saint-Quentin-en-Yvelines velodrome, south of Paris, in mid-October to discover track cycling.
Fast, spectacular and rhythmic, this sport is truly underrated. Plus, the French are pretty good!
BASQUE PELOTA WORLD CHAMPIONSHIP (BIARRITZ)
Dates : October 16 to 22
Location : Biarritz
To end the year, we invite you to go to Basque soil to discover the regional sport: Basque pelota. Indeed, Biarritz welcomes basque pelota world championships during one week.
Derived from the game of tennis, pelota is a confrontation between two teams who must take turns returning the “pelota” (the ball). The team that does not return the ball loses the point. Protect yourself, throws can reach 300 km/h!
