France Motorcycle Events June?

Hi, does anyone know of any motorcycling events that are happening in France during June? Classic racing would be ideal, off-road, twinshock or road. I shall be heading through France 15-28 June and would be good to have more destinations....

If you're going to Limoges you may want to visit this place. I have been myself and it is spectacular in it's own way.

Thanks v much Pongo, very useful. I'm in the Auvergne between 19th and 30th June on the GSXF750, looking for trips out from Route99 camping. Some of these events are close enough.

Try this event in Lourdes. It on 14-15 June this year.
I was there in 2004, purely by accident that I came across it. The town closes down as thousands of bikes make their way from the grotto to a large outdoor park. Here you'll find food, and loads of live music. It was a fantastic experience!
