Based out of the commune of Evolène at 1380m in the Valais region of Switzerland, the Raid Evolénard is a weekend of mtb events of varying lengths for all ages and abilities with the main 62.5km race attracting a high level of competition including numerous pro/elites.
A course worthy of hosting the Swiss National marathon championships in 2016, and European Championships in 2021, with its 2660m of vertical, it’s a course that demands good physical conditioning and high descending skills. Even the drive up from Sion through the gorge is as spectacular as the riding above the commune of Evolène.
