Trans-Savoie Race Event Registration – Dates Announced

Registration opens Tuesday 2nd January 2013 at 18:00 GMT (19:00 CET; 12:00 CST/USA)

The inaugural event will take place 17th to 24th August 2013 (with six days of racing commencing 08:30 on 18th August).

This uplift-assisted multi-day Enduro event adopts a familiar rally-style format to that of similar events such as the Trans-Provence, but throws Ski-lift uplifting, 3000m peaks and monster 1200m-vertical special stages into the mix.  It begins at Val d’Isere and traverses the Savoie region of France, ending in Chamonix, covering 250km+ with a total altitude loss in excess of 20,000m.

The race package includes accommodation, catering, and logistical support such that all entrants can focus 100% on the racing, with an equal footing to all other competitors.

Entries will be allocated on first-come-first-served basis, as judged by the order they are received after the above time & date. We’d advise getting in quick since entries are limited to 35 open-category competitors. (A further 15 spaces are pre-allocated for professional entries).

  • High quality campsite accommodation (individual tent)
  • Quality catering (3 meals per day) plus trailside refuelling stations
