For those who would still ignore it, the Megavalanche Saint Paul is one of the most famous and not-to-be missed DH marathon race.
Since 1995, thousands of you have taken part in the Maïdo every year, in all weathers! His departure in Mass Start at 2205 meters above sea level on the Mafate circus, and his arrival in Savanna, makes this DH Marathon the longest and craziest race in the world. In addition to this renowned event, there is also the MEGA KID, dedicated to children, and the e-Megavalanche, a category reserved for electrically assisted mountain bikes.
