Les Portes du Soleil
The Haute-Savoie region has hosted no less than six rounds of the UCI Mountain Bike World Cup in the past, as well as the UCI Mountain Bike World Championships twice in Les Gets, most recently in August this year. However, the 2023 edition will be the first time the Portes du Soleil has brought all the major mountain bike formats together in a single event.
This major venue will host multi-format races combined with a festival atmosphere designed to entertain fans and gather the mountain bike industry into one space. For the first time, this will happen across back-to-back weekends. With these major formats united in a single area, riders, teams and fans can look forward to more racing than ever before.
It’s not just the pros who’ll be between the tapes at this exciting new festival - amateurs will be able to compete in the open racing in both Enduro and Marathon. The ten day festival is the first time all major MTB formats, along with amateur racing, will come together in what is sure to be the ultimate mountain biking experience.
