Chamrousse and Vaulnaveys-le-Haut are joining forces to bring you a wild summer version of the race: the Chamrousse MTB Derby on Saturday July 29 and Sunday July 30, 2023, as part of the Trophée Enduro des Alpes.
The Chamrousse MTB Derby is one of the stages of the "Trophée Enduro des Alpes". This enduro mountain bike circuit brings together several stages in the direct vicinity of Grenoble, with one stage for each massif: Belledonne, Vercors and Taillefer.
- 5 enduro special stages at the Chamrousse Bike Park and magnificent special stages in the Seiglières sector: 29 km distance with 2050 m of D- and 1100 m of D+ on the pedals.
- Afterparty in front of the Chamrousse 1650 Tourist Office from 5.30 pm to 7.30 pm: stickers for the next day's starting waves, unofficial qualifying race podium, DJ and take-away beers from nearby bars.
Mass start from the top of the resort's ski area at Croix de Chamrousse, then 13 km, 100 m D+ and 1900 m D- non-stop and finish at Parc d'Uriage. The 1st down wins!
There are several (small) uphill sections on the route, so you'll need a combination of technical ability and physical fitness to win this magnificent derby.
