Just heard about this snowy mass start race at Alpe D’Huez, the same location as the famous Megavalanche. The Mega is about 30 kms where as this race is a bit shorter at 20kms, but the difference is I imagine there will be a shed load of fresh snow for the Sarenne Snow Bike race.
So if you’re heading out to that area for some late season skiing then take your bike too and give this race a go it’s only 25 Euros and you get a free meal too…bargain!
