[part title=”Megavalanche – France”]
When: July 9 2014
Where: Alpe d’Huez, France
Megavalance is one of the spectacles of MTB racing and something that everyone on two wheels should try and complete. The race kicks off with a crazy mass start as the entire field takes on a huge technical descent at once. The race takes place on Alpe d’Huez and follows the ski runs that are situated on the mountain during winter. Megavalanche follows a series of black runs which should give you an idea of what you’ll be tackling.
The race isn’t all downhill however as you’ll be in for some climbing as well. As the race drops from 3300m to 700m the race ends in woodland riding meaning that the Megavalanche tests every aspect of a rider’s skills in one of the most spectacular races in the world.
