Super Huit,

MTB and E-MTB all mountain race in La Plagne

featured in Events Calendar Updated

There's something for everyone, from long distance to amateur formats through to themed rides.

A superb schedule of events over the weekend.

The main race here, reserved for experts and elites in eMTB. It's a two-day event with one night spent out under the stars in a bivouac.
Day One: 52km, 3,000m (D+), 3,447 (D-)
Day Two: 48km, 2,970m (D+), 2,523 (D-)
This route has been especially designed for eMTB, with more than 90% on 'single tracks', where each rider and his bike is individually tested on both uphill and downhill. There are fast climbs through forests, steep and technical high mountains, ridge lines with unrivalled panoramas and enduro descents. The race is limited to 50 participants based on their sporting cv.

A timed event ranging from 23km to 82km. The race route is in the shape of a double eight, or a four-leaf clover. Each is open to solo riders or a two-person relay team. The participants can select how many routes they want to complete, all dotted with various landscapes of high mountains and forests. Only those that complete all four stages will be considered finishers.
Loop One - Plagne Montalbert sector: 23km, 1,025m (D+)
Loop Two - Montchavin-les-Coches sector: 23km, 815m (D+) Cumulative 46km
Loop Three - Champagny en Vanoise sector: 25km, 1,165m (D+) Cumulative 71km
Loop Four - Tour du Saint Jacques: 11km, 815m (D+), Cumulative 82km

A 'discovery' version of the Double8 for those that prefer things a little calmer. Only two loops to complete, each 23km long, so depending on your fitness and motivation on the day you can either complete one or two, riding 46km in total. It's a timed course, but without classification and the race is open to everyone.
Loop One - Plagne Montalbert sector: 23km, 1,025m (D+)
Loop Two - Montchavin-les-Coches sector: 23km, 815m (D+) Cumulative 46km
