Trans-Savoie : THE ROUTE

Probably the most varied, challenging, flat-out-fun, and original route ever conceived in the history of mountain biking……a bold claim indeed. But quite simply, the stats speak for themselves: and there is no better way to describe what is the culmination of literally years of trail research and months of planning, tweaking and refinement. The world over, no other technical point-to-point adventure exists that contains more total distance of singletrack, more descent per day, or with a higher concentration of mind-blowing, descent-biased yet all-natural wilderness riding.

The total distance covered on-bike is around 250Km, over 6-days. The approximate total descent is 25,000m but only 6,000m of this is self-propelled back up again – the remainder using a combination of local transport options including ski-lifts, funicular (mountain) railway, cog railway and bus shuttles. The event’s format is therefore heavily biased towards long downhill technical singletrack sections. All riders will ride the course unprepared and unseen, and specific the skill of riding-on-sight – close to the limit but never at or beyond it, and with a strong respect for all other trail & mountain users.

The exact and all-new route of the Fifty-Fifty is a closely guarded secret, and its an evolving, ever-changing beast – years of refinement and iteration alongside hundreds of hours of off-season trail hunting are all throw into the melting pot.

Are you excited to ride this route, but prefer a more relaxed atmosphere & pace? Don’t like the idea of tents or dormitory accommodation?
