EUROPE’S FINEST MOUNTAIN BIKE RAID
The Ultra Raid de La Meije is a MTB event unlike any other. In Oisans cycling country, pedalling takes on a whole new dimension, with breathtaking scenery, iconic mountain passes, varied paths, technical descents and high-altitude lakes offering mountain bikers an exceptional play area.
As “ultra” is synonymous not only with pushing back your limits, but also with human and sporting adventure, the organisers of the Ultra Raid de La Meije take care to offer a challenge that respects the purist mountain biking spirit.
The Ultra Raid de La Meije enjoys a 100% natural setting, using only tracks and paths! This is a very technical, high-altitude mountain raid, suitable only for highly-trained mountain bikers.There are no half measures in Oisans. The scenery is breathtaking and the mountain passes iconic, with varied paths, technical descents and high-altitude lakes offering mountain bikers an exceptional play area.However, the Ultra Raid is not open uniquely to the elite. The two ‘Ultra’ events are for advanced riders, but the events entitled ‘Rando’ are suitable for the less experienced.
