TEAM MB RACE SOMFY VTT

 

The MB Ultra becomes the MB Ultra Somfy. Already engaged for several years, Somfy shows once again its attachment to the sport and its origin in Haute-Savoie.

 

This is the event’s flagship race. For the third year in a row, the MB ultra is the MTB Marathon World Championships (XCM), in the ‘Marathon Series’ category. It’s an incredible setting for the loftiest of challenges: To become a Finisher! There are three courses: 70 km (3 500 m E+) / 100 km (5 000 m E+) / 140 km (7 000 m E+). Riders go out in a mass start, and can then choose either to stop at the designated spots or go on and try to reach the furthest distance.
