THE CONCEPT

The concept is simple, connect Pic du Midi to Lourdes over two days with an interval at Cauterets. The entirety will take place on the beautiful Pyreneen paths.

Why an All Mountain race? This format offers the rider a timed race with 2x the downhill that one could wish for. What LOURDES VTT would define as truly “All Mountain”.
