MTB ALPINE CUP: 4 EXCEPTIONAL RACES FOR 1 NEW CHALLENGE

The Alpine arc as a playground
The HERO Südtirol in Italy, the MB Race Culture Vélo in France, the Grand Raid BCVS in Switzerland and the Forestière in France have decided to regroup to launch a new challenge: the MTB Alpine Cup.
These four major races have a common geographical denominator: the alpine arc.
"The objective is to put forward our territories through 4 exceptional races. These 4 events offer participants the opportunity to discover 4 extraordinary playgrounds around the most beautiful alpine massifs.

Approved by the UCI
The HERO Südtirol, the MB Race Culture Vélo, the Grand Raid BCVS and the Forester Bulls Bikes are all part of the UCI Marathons Series circuit. The MTB Alpine Cup is not a world cup but rather a challenge including the most beautiful MTB marathon events in Europe.

Who will be the king?
This challenge proposes to push the limits even further! The pilots will fight four battles to try to ascend the throne and become the king or queen of the MTB Alpine Cup. More than 450km and 19500m of positive gradients accumulated on these 4 events, the MTB Alpine Cup is an extraordinary challenge.

Like the Grand Slam tournaments, in the field of tennis, the leaders will defend their crown on each stage and the final winner will be designated at the end of the Forestiere Bulls Bikes, the final stage of the challenge. The ranking will be based on the number of points scored on the 4 races. To congratulate such performances, interesting prize money and a trophy will reward the "kings" of the ATV marathon.
