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…

/ Here is the 4th edition of Alps Epic in Haute-Alpes. We are really proud and happy to come back in places where we build the legend and the identity of this race four years ago. You will enjoy the amazing trails and views in Serre Chevalier Valley. You will ride authentic mountain passes in Queyras Guillestrois, climb the Vars ridges and enjoy a king of Magic un Serre Ponçon. That’s why it will il be a great event. Welcome in the Alps Epic.
