It's time for the Trans-Savoie to winds it's way through the Alps for nearly a week of racing and the organisers have just beamed over this video of the forst days racing. There will be more updates to come this week so check back for the results and videos as they land.


Trans-Savoie 2014 started this weekend in the French Alps. You know the score - six days of mammoth descents and adventure in the Savoie region - home to some of the best technical singletrack riding in the world. The journey began at Val D'Isere and ends at Chamonix on Friday evening with over 100 racers along for the wild ride.

After over 4,750m of descending on Day One and an hour on the clock, a familiar name was top of the heap as the fastest rider on the day - DH legend Steve Peat, followed by SPS team mate Neil Donoghue. Polygon enduro racer Jamie Nicoll from New Zealand was lying in third position.
