ALPS EPIC / is an exceptional MTB adventure inspired by the Grande Traversée des Hautes-Alpes (Great Hautes-Alpes Crossing, 350 kilometers of trails from La Grave to Laragne).

/ Marathon stage race, pair racing, or MTB ride without ranking, you can choose your formula.
/ 1 Prologue + 5 stages with 50-70km per day.
/ This event truly is EPIC: point to point riding over a week, requiring all the strength and bike handling skills a rider has, with everything else taken care of by the ALPS EPIC team: food, accommodation and race logistics… An extraordinarily epic adventure that will show you awesome areas like Ancelle, Le Dévoluy, les Source du Büech, for a final ride to Serre-Ponçon and its lake.
