3rd and 4th August 2024


The mass start mountain bike enduro race series that takes you and your buddies to some of Europe’s most beautiful resorts!


The Maxiavalanche is a series of DH marathon mass start events held in some of Europe’s most beautiful resorts, on specially selected courses ranging in altitude from 1,000 to 1,500 metres.
The programme for each stage: after free practice on Friday and Saturday morning, a qualifying round on Saturday afternoon with a line start in waves of 70 to 100 riders allows riders to be placed in their level group: Maxiavalanche Europe Cup for the top 100, Challengers for the next 100 and Amateurs! On Sunday, there will be two races to decide who will win!
