Alpe d’Huez from 27 June to 3 july 2022

REGISTRATION

For those who would still ignore it, the Megavalanche Alpe d’Huez is one of the most famous and not-to-be missed ENDURO MASS-START race.

Since 1995, each year, thousands of riders take the departure from the famous “Pic Blanc” ;  in every weather condition !  Its Mass Start at 3330 meters high on the glacier and its finish line in Allemont, 2600 meters down, makes this ENDURO MASS-START race the longest and craziest race in the world !
In addition to this race will be held the MEGA KID, especially for children. Electric Bike riders will also be pleased with a dedicated start and ranking!
So? Are you ready to compete the famous MEGAVALANCHE?
