The world’s hardest mountain biking race will show in Combloux from July 5th to 7th 2019.
The MB RACE CULTURE VÉLO started in 2010. This mountain bike race, held in the magnificent "Portes du Mont-Blanc" region (Combloux, Megève, La Giettaz, Cordon, Sallanches), is challenging yet awe-inspiring.
It is the longest one-day event in the mountain biking world – 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 hardest race.
Since 2016, the race is part of the International Cyclist Union calendar as the longest staging point of the Marathon World Cup. Combloux now welcomes the world’s best riders. This is a true achievement for the whole organisation, led by a 20-member committee with the support of 425 volunteers.
