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

A quick word on the concept of THE race 

– it’s very simple : a start at over 3000m.. 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 !!!!
