La Grave – French Alps.

The Ultra Raid de La Meije is an MTB event quite unlike any other. In Oisans cycling country, pedalling takes on a whole new dimension, with breathtaking scenery, iconic mountain passes, varied paths, technical descents and high-altitude lakes offering mountain bikers an exceptional play area. As “ultra” is synonymous not only with pushing back your limits, but also a human and sporting adventure, the organisers of the Ultra Raid de La Meije take care to offer a challenge that respects the purist mountain biking spirit.

"We were lucky to have only the sub-zero temperatures to handle, it would have been raining, I guess it would have been impossible to finish. Definitely a beautiful environment here, and a very tough race where you have to push your physical and mental limits. I knew very late I was in the lead as the riders in front of me decided to go for the shorter distance and not complete the longer course, very happy to discover i win the race ! " said QUEMERE at the finish.
