In the shadow of Mont Blanc, it’s sure to deliver stunning Italian singletrack, unreal vistas and frentic racing. It’s a firm favourite with the riders so along with the enduro old guard, there’s a contingent of World Cup racers about hoping to keep their eyes in before Mont Sainte Anne – they may even sneak themselves a shock result, like Sam Hill did in Ireland.
The racing takes place on Staurday and Sunday with three stages on each day. Transfers are a mix of chairlifts and pedalling with a total ascent of 1204 meters and descent of 4,807 meters. GC times are expected to be around 50 minutes for the top men.
