About the Event

This is another ride in our summer series of high Alpine super enduro rides. This trail offers spectacular views and an unforgettable single-track experience. We will get to the top with a gondola, enjoy a rocky traverse, a fast a flowy drop down to the valley and take a postal bus up + plus another gondola followed by another techy trasverse with a final pedal up of around 380m+  and ride down nearly 3'400m in vertical drop.

Whilst the amount of climbing seems trivial, be aware that the 2 traverses will test your skill and the second descent of the day is highly techinical for the first third and the whole descent is physically demanding.  

Here is a link to a clip providing a general idea of what to expect:

If you can’t ride/drive to the meeting point, please let us know, you might be able to join in another’s car!

Most likely we will go in at least one car from Geneva so a shuttle including bikes is available. The number of places in the car is limited so contact the organiser asap to reserve your place (regular fuel contribution per trip consumption) and if you come with a car and have spare places you are willing to offer to riders with bikes please let the organisers know.

Please make sure you have a complete change of clothes (clean shoes, shorts and a T-shirt) for the car after riding. That is essential if you forget, be prepared to travel in the boot, wearing a bin bag ;P .

We plan to depart on Friday evening and camp locally for an easy start on Saturday. Then we camp on Sat evening for an easy start on Sunday ride and come back on Sunday evening. You are welcome to join us directly there if camping or 2 days trip does not suit you. 

If you can drive to the meeting point and have free spaces in your car, please let us know!
