The MB RACE started in 2010. This mountain bike race, held in the magnificent Portes du Mont-Blanc region (Combloux, Megève, La Giettaz, Cordon, Sallanches), is as challenging as it is awe-inspiring.
It is the longest one-day event in the mountain biking worldwide – 140 km with 7000 metres of elevation gain. In 2010, only one competitor out of 600 starters finished the race, earning it the title of the world’s most difficult race.
For the first time in 2015, the race was integrated into the UCI calendar and 2027 racers came to compete in Combloux & Megève. This year, the world’s best riders will come together in Combloux following the World Marathon Cup. This is a true achievement for the whole organisation, led by a 20-member committee with the support of 425 volunteers.
In 2019, the race will take place on 6th & 7th July in Combloux. Megève will also be in the spotlight as the secondary village. These two village resorts take turns hosting the event every second year.
The event is OPEN FOR EVERYONE with 7 races : MB Ultra, MB Explore, MB Enduro, MB First, MB kids, MB Draisienne and MB eRANDO.
