23rd-28th August: Trans Savoie Mountain Biking Endurance Race
The Trans Savoie Endurance race is an epic adventure across the alps, requiring skill, athletic fitness, mental determintation and strategy to tackle some of the best mountain bike trails in the world.
The route exploits the ski lift system which criss-crosses the alps, allowing access to routes that would otherwise not be accessible. The terrain is a blend of open and exposed high-alpine and lower-level forrested singletrack, making for a real mixture of tight and technical, fast and flowing, rocky and rooty!
The race starts in Val D’Isère and travels the alps for six days, taking in the famous ski resorts of Tignes, les Arcs, La Plagne, Meribel and Courchevel, while also introducing bikers to lesser-known gems including Bozel, Beaufort and Les Menuires. Don’t miss the final day’s stage, which finishes in Chamonix.
