The paper deals with the bifurcation of relaxation oscillations in two dimensional slow-fast systems. The most generic case is studied by means of geometric singular perturbation theory, using blow up at contact points. It reveals that the bifurcation goes through a continuum of transient canard oscillations, controlled by the slow divergence integral along the critical curve. The theory is applied to polynomial Liénard equations, showing that the cyclicity near a generic coallescence of two relaxation oscillations does not need to be limited to two, but can be arbitrarily high.
