Famous for its epic ski area and challenging downhill trails, it's fitting that the only combined downhill skiing and biking race in Europe takes place in Les Arcs.
A great transition from winter into spring by swapping your skis for two wheels! You'll need a partner, one on skis or a snowboard and one on a mountain bike. The race is open to 150 teams of two, made up of men, women and mixed pairs. Everyone sets off on skis at the same time from the top of the Arpette lift and it's a race to tag your partner on their bikes in Arcs 1600.
The event starts after the ski area closes and there will be 1,600m of total descent before the winners are crowned down in Bourg St Maurice.
Reconnaissance of the route is allowed in advance and the prize giving and a buffet will take place in BSM at the finish. There will also be a bike test village in the funicular car park in Bourg with lots of new toys to try out for summer!
