A groundbreaking point-to-point stage event 100% focused on technical riding ability and epic adventure, TRANS-SAVOIE joins the dots between skill, athletic fitness, mental determination, and strategic riding on some of the best mountain bike trails in the world.

This event truly levels-the-playing-field between the technically brilliant, the athletically fit, the mentally determined, and the mindful strategist….Any participant in this event will require a healthy serving indeed of all the above qualities in order to successfully complete the week.  More of a High Alpine Expedition than an MTB Enduro, if you are looking for the 2-wheeled challenge of your life – frankly, this is it.

See the route below, with the latest results, videos and event updates for each day updated throughout the event:

As the long-time vision of the 13-year owner of trailAddiction, the TRANS-SAVOIE is designed to be accessible to many yet uncompromising to all.

The existence of this event is possible only by drawing on our collective knowledge of 50+ years of guiding experience in the Savoie region. A continued passion for extracting only the very best routes from within an infinite trail network of unrealised possibilities is a vision that has been many years in the making.

Now, this potential has been unlocked in a ‘Big Alpine Enduro’ stage race that pushes the boundaries of the mult-staged-Enduro format to a level not yet available elsewhere in any other event.

By selecting a route that uniquely links together the rapid mechanical uplift potential of the region’s extensive ski-lift system, this event stands ahead of all others on statistics alone. This format allows access to a route that quite simply would not be possible by any other means of access.

Adopting a familiar rally-style format, the route consists of several timed downhill-biased stages each day (typically 4 to 5) with a total daily timed descent of an astonishing 4000-5000 vertical metres covering a distance of 35-50Km. The average climb-per-day sits at 800-1000m vertical, of which 95%+ is climbable without dismounting. The terrain is a blend of open and exposed high-alpine and lower-level forrested singletrack…a mixture of tight & technical, fast and flowing, rocky and rooty, and often exposed. This race is most certainly only for those focussed in mind as well as in body. Forget hours of hike -a-bike, sitting in a van, or grinding up fire-roads between stages. The Trans-Savoie is about shredding the most challenging and spectacular singletrack there is…..to the backdrop of Mt Blanc and other epic peaks that dominate the Savoie region.

This fully-supported event passes through remote and dramatic scenery each day, yet returns to some of the Alps finest and better-known biking destinations hubs each evening for daily de-briefing & camp. The competitor will also be introduced to some lesser known singletrack gold-mines (Bozel, Beaufort, Les Menuires, Villarlurin).

Perhaps best of all, with just so much epic singletrack in the bank, the organisers trailAddiction have scope to update the route each year with more and more new stages thrown in the mix. This event is always fresh and always blind – a truly level playing field for all participants.
