Hand to heart, this is not your average after work mountain bike Tour. This is an adventure. A hard one. A beautiful one. A ride that’s going to demand everything from you. A ride that’s going to reveal all of the infinite beauty of the Mont Blanc massif in every imaginable way.

Up trails, down trails—you’re about to climb over 8,000 meters (26,000 feet) in five days. And it’s going to be fun: You’ll skip along singletrails, feel the adrenaline pumping through your veins, push your bike to the absolute limit before cursing it and everything it represents as you stare sweaty-eyed over pristine glacial peaks and endless mountains. It could be worse, right?

So, tell us: Are looking for a challenge? Do you want to ride up, down and then up again? Do you want to feel the true power of the mountain and overcome it? If you answered yes to any of those questions, this is the Tour for you.
