Mega Avalanche entries now open

Enter the world’s most crazy downhill race

Entries are now open for the Mega Avalanche downhill race which takes place in the Alpine resort of Alpe D’Huez, France on July 11-12th.

Probably the most exhausting downhill course in the world, hundreds of riders tackle rocky, snow-covered 32km course which has over 8,500ft of descent.

MBUK technical editor Ian Collins took on the mighty course last year, and he says: “When you let off the brakes on a steep piste like that, it feels like someone is shoving you down the slope. Full-on 40mph drifts felt awesome and I was soon having some of the best fun I’ve had on two wheels.”
