For those who would still ignore it, the Megavalanche Alpe d’Huez is one of the most famous and not-to-be missed DH marathon race. Since 1995, each year, thousands of riders take the departure from the famous “Pic Blanc” ; this this 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 DH Marathon race the longest and craziest race in the world !


In addition to this race will be held the MEGA KID, especially for children, and the MEGA FAMILY Challenge. Electric Bike riders will be happy to take the departure of the E-Bike MTB Serie on the Glacier!

So? Are you ready to compete the famous MEGAVALANCHE?
