Saint Martin Vésubie – Nice



La Transvésubienne


Over the last 35 years, the Transvésubienne has left its mark on the mountain biking community for its avant-garde character, linked to the performances, whether sporting or purely personal, that it imposed on its participants.

As “every cloud has a silver lining”, the disaster that has transformed the Haute Vésubie will offer outdoor cycling enthusiasts new opportunities, and it is certain exceptional conditions that have guided the choices that will lead from St Martin Vésubie to Nice via the Pic de Colmiane, the bed of the Vésubie, the mountain of the Col de Turini, the Col St Michel dominated by the famous ruins of Rocca Spaviera and the Haute Vallée du Paillon.

Around 84km and 2900D+ will be the ‘measurements’ of the 2023 race, and it’s all about discovery and the pleasure of long-distance riding, for the privilege of those who cross the finish line after this extraordinary mountain bike epic.

Try your hand at adventure! Solo, duo, relay, mountain bike, E-Bike and Gravel on the Transvésubienne or the TRANSV Light… There’s something for everyone, so you can enjoy the thrill of reaching Nice after an epic MTB!

A more accessible adventure!

For those who prefer a more accessible challenge than the Transvesubienne Classique, the TransV 50km and Rando Vesubienne are options that are as technical as they are magnificent.

Enjoy the adventure by mountain bike or VAE, where the TransV 50km and Rando Vesubienne become even more accessible and exciting.
With the free battery management system for VAEs, you have the freedom to carry as many batteries as you like, whatever their capacity.

TRANSV 50: 50km / +1300m / -2600m

Col de Turini – Nice

Enjoy a great day’s racing on Sunday, starting at the famous Col de Turini!
Open to MTB and EBIKES (battery management free and autonomous).

Rando Vésubienne

The TRANSV 50 in rando format, without ranking! Make the most of the Transvésubienne adventure, by MTB or EBIKES with the batteries you want ! Beware of high technical level, and time barriers to respect.

Ranking in DUO!

Together we go further!

Registration in teams of two !

Together we are stronger! Stay together until the finish line and try to win as a pair. You will have to help each other because only the time of the last person to cross the line counts for the team, plus the “solidarity gap” between the first and the last team member if the team does not cross the finish line together. This calculation formula will encourage duos to stay together until the finish line, for better or for worse 😉 Each rider registered as a duo will also be ranked individually in the general classification.
Open in the EBIKE category as well.
