Prepare for a fabulous and festive weekend of togetherness!

5 disciplines are represented, with a cycling challenge, a Gravel-bike race, an E-bike tour, a kids' race and the "Phénoménale".

"L'Originale":
For this year's event, we've designed a route that climbs some of the Alps' legendary mountain passes like Col des Prés, Col des Saisies, and even the exceptional Col de l'Arpettaz.
A single starting line but 3 distances: 60, 100 and 150km, with elevation gains of 1530, 2910 and 4842 metres respectively. Competitors can choose their distance as they cycle, and decide whether or not they want to be timed.

"L'Aventurière" - Gravel race:
Gravel biking is a spirit, a state of mind... This all-day race covers a 75km itinerary and takes our new adventurers into the Beaufortin massif (Col de Véry, Col de la Péchette, Col du Joly, etc.) and across the Mont-Blanc foothills.

"La Phénoménale" - Cycle & Gravel race:
This race is for those who live and breathe cycling and refuse to choose between gravel bike or road bike... The programme promises dust, sweat and tears, but also breathtaking panoramas, calves of steel and thighs like concrete!
That's right, this is a 2-day combination of the 75km "Aventurière" gravel race and the 100km "Originale" cycle race. Up for the challenge?

"L'Originale" - Untimed 60km Cycle or Ebike race
As a recent addition to the cycling world, the power-assisted road bike is revolutionising this icon of sporting challenges, by making it accessible to a wider audience.
Road cycle races are generally deemed to be difficult, exclusive and even extreme. The addition of a power-assisted motor to the bike, paired with the desire to push out one's boundaries, makes it possible to cross even the highest mountain passes, regardless of the cyclist's level of physical fitness.
