In the tracks of the MB Ultra...

The race in a nutshell

In 2024, the MB Explore is reinventing itself to allow all mountain bike lovers to embark on their first 100% MB Race challenge…

We’ve taken up the concept that has made the event so famous, by offering you a challenge just like the MB Ultra on Saturday! You’ll be able to choose between three distances: 20, 35 or 55 km with 1000m, 1500m and 2200 m of D+ respectively. Depending on the condition of your legs… and of your head, you’ll be able to decide whether to stop or continue for a longer distance!

The routes have been redesigned to offer you the best possible experience of the Mont Blanc region! The first 20 km section, open to cadets and above, will take you from Combloux to the Mont d’Arbois side, with no less than 1000 m of D+ before rallying to Megève. At this point, you’ll have the choice of stopping or continuing for a further 15 or 35 km. While the 35 km will take you to the well-known Le Jaillet sector, the 55 km is totally new and promises a magnificent MTB experience!
