THE ULTIMATE RACE

#MeetYourLimits in the heart of the Swiss alps

A redesigned race format that aims to offer you ultradistance races with the most elevation gain per kilometer over distances of 1000km, 555km and 333km. From the start on the velodrome of the UCI World Cycling Center (WCC) to the finish at the Château d'Aigle, you'll cross the most prestigious landscapes of the Swiss Alps in total autonomy, and experience intense emotions.

The ultimate challenge

To get to the end of this journey in the allotted time, night riding seems to be the obvious choice. So, depending on your sleep strategy, you can ride all night or leave your accommodation early in the morning to benefit from maximum natural light. This will also enable you to enjoy mild temperatures at all altitudes.

The ultimate Switzerland

Grosse Scheidegg, Grimsel, Furka, Nufenen, Croix de Coeur, ... the names of mythical mountain passes in the world of cycling. Depending on how far you've progressed, you'll have the opportunity to experience a sunrise in exceptional places, in an emotional state that heightens the euphoria of the moment.

The ultimate tip

80% of success comes before the race. Physical and mental preparation are crucial, as is the choice of the right equipment. An event as unprecedented as this one means adapting your bike to maximize comfort. Gear ratios, too, will be much lower than those seen on the start lines of a traditional race ... and even of other ultra-distance road races.

Whether solo, in a duo or in a team of four, the finish line in Aigle, land of cycling and cycling capital of the world, must be reached without any external assistance . The principles of self-sufficiency recently outlined in an article on Bikepacking.com apply.

In short, #meetyourlimits and don't be a dick!
