After three massively successful events. We've lined up more awesome trails including a completely reworked day to fit in some of the best trails we’ve ever found in the Savoie region. Overall there are less pedalling miles on liaison sections than ever before. If you think you can handle riding and racing epic, wilderness singletrack trails for 6 days straight with ski lifts taking care of the bulk of the climbing, make sure to get your entry in. For the last three years, demand has way outstripped the number of places available.
To make the open-to-all event even more accessible, we are again offering the most affordable way to enter the Trans-Savoie with a less expensive, stripped back, self-supported package. Vango LUX pack places will also be available for those looking for a little more space and luxury.
The entry process sees all applications screened to ensure riders meet the required level of technical competence and experience required to safely compete, before 110 entry places are randomly allocated (it's not done on a first come, first served basis).
Successful applicants will be notified in early November. A second wave of limited entries (around 20 places) will be available in March 2016. There are no reserve spaces for Pro racers - if you are a Pro rider and wish to participate, we strongly advise getting your entry in early. There are no clashes with EWS events or Eurobike in 2016.
This brand new exclusive 2015 highlights video attached gives you an idea of what Trans-Savoie offers - unbelievable descents for up to 30 minutes, singletrack ribbons for miles, all spiced up by some of the most technically demanding rocky, challenging terrain on the enduro race circuit. Over the course of six days there are up to six massive timed downhills per day in stunning dramatic alpine scenery, all accessed using the extensive lift systems (or the least uphill liaison stages we can engineer!) to get to the good stuff. Trans-Savoie is ridden against the clock during the stages, but we strive to deliver a fun, relaxed vibe throughout the week with no excessive pressure to compete - racers can take it all in at whatever pace they prefer.
Riders that don’t manage to secure an entry this time can always ride the entire course in a more relaxed itinerary with a fully supported guided tour of the race with trailaddiction.com, it’s a great way to access some of the best trails in europe without the pressure of racing.
