MOUNTAIN OF HELL 24 - 26 June 2022

MOUNTAIN OF HELL

A hellish mountain bike descent on a crazy course, a crazy atmosphere for three days of riding 100% Les 2 Alpes!

24, 25 & 26 June 2022

A quick word on the concept of THE race 

  • it’s very simple : a start at 3400m with wheels in the snow … for 2400m of difference in altitude.
  • it’s very hot : a 25 km freeride enduro descent on all types of terrain (single track, rocks, snow) with a good dose of adrenaline …
  • it’s straight on : a crazy negative difference in altitude … all schuss … the first to arrive at the bottom wins !!!!

CONGRATULATIONS TO ALL OF YOU!

In the girls’ category, Emilie SERRE won the race in 40 minutes ahead of Liesbeth HESSENS and Kristen NELEN. The novelty this year, about thirty riders on the MOH Ebike version.
