Sheltered behind the barriers
The space between the barriers and the start of the bleachers, which is only a few feet wide, is called the counter-track. It constitutes the space where the judges of Camargue races stand, along with some reckless spectators and the raseteurs who take shelter from the bull. The counter-track is also wide enough to welcome the bull if it breaks the barriers. Doors at the walls allow, however, putting the animal back on track. The beginning of the bleachers comprises various elements allowing the raseteur to hang on high to escape the bull, while the audience seats higher up. Finally, a space in the first row of the bleachers, often near the toril, is reserved for the presidency.
