The Alpine Challenge is an endurance charity event that invites teams of four riders to clock up 150km of riding over two days in the Portes du Soleil ski area in Morzine, France, from the 16-19 January. But it’s not quite as straightforward as it sounds.
This is an endurance challenge that calls upon routes and strategies. Teams have to navigate to each of the checkpoints across the 15 ski resorts of the Portes du Soleil region and to knacker you out that little bit more they’ve thrown in a compulsory 5km mountain hike during the night.
