The Trans Savoie racers are two days deep into the 6 day race that starts in Val d’Isere and finishes in Chamonix. Taking on a similar format, but run by a completely separate team, to the Trans Provence the Trans Savoie covers 20 stages over 6 days of racing all wrapped up in 20,000m of descending!
This video documents the first two days of racing. (we are up to day 4 now so expecting another edit soon) Looking at the results sheet Rene Wildhaber is leading with the UK’s Neil Donoghue from Steve Peat’s Syndicate Team in 3rd.
The Trans Savoie joins the dots between skill, athletic fitness, mental determination, and strategic riding.
