From ski tips to two wheels, it’s no more than a baton change...
All Mountains Events is organising the very first ski-bike relay in France in a 100% adrenalin downhill run from les Arcs to Bourg Saint Maurice.
And what better way than a change from skis to a bike to mark the change from winter to spring? With its enormous ski area and its varied summer mountain bike area behind it, les Arcs just had to combine the resort’s two star activities.
So, all that remains for you to do now is to choose your camp – ski poles or handlebars – and find a partner!
How does it work?
- Race open to all categories of teams: men/ women/ mixed
- Race open to 150 teams of 2
- Group start, in line, after the pistes close at around 5.00 p.m.
- Marked course flanked by pisteurs
