Trans-Savoie – Big Alpine Enduro
August 21, 2016 - August 27, 2016€1995
The Trans-Savoie Big Alpine Enduro event is point-to-point enduro mountain biking at its very best. Ride 300 km of the world’s foremost mountain bike trails from Val d’Isère to Chamonix over 6 days.
Timed stages take in seemingly endless descents on technical singletrack, while liaison stages are a blend of cruising singletrack, climbing and chairlifts. The route is long and physical and be under no illusion, with an average 5 km vertical drop and 50 km riding per day, you’ll need a high level of fitness to complete the itinerary.
The Trans-Savoie is possibly the most technically challenging and naturally hazardous MTB event in the world.
