Inspired by the Grande Traverse des Hautes-Alpes, the inaugural 2016 edition of the Alps Epic was a roaring success, and the start of a legend in the making. The Alps Epic will continue toshow off the incredible singletrack of the Grande Traversée des Hautes-Alpes in its entirety over the coming years. The race truly is EPIC: point to point racing over a week, requiring all the strength and bike handling skills a rider has, with everything else taken care of by the Alpes Epic team: food, accommodation and race logistics… An extraordinarily epic adventure.
With a prologue and 5 marathon stages of 50-70km per day, the Alps Epic is an event where the riding will be about quality, not pushing for quantity. Event entries can be purely for the race entry, or include different levels of accomodation with the blue and black levels. Go to the event website for full details.
The Alps Epic is set to become a French classic, an international level mountain bike stage race that shows off the beauty of the French Alps.
