Unmissable MTB tracks

The legendary Poutran
Highly technical and internationally recognized at the highest level, this track requires commitment at all times. Starting on stone slabs the rocky section gives way to the forest. This is followed by a series of sharp bends, crossings torrents with a slope of 40% average; over 65% in places. National and international champions complete the descent in less than 3 minutes; how will you compare?

Megavalanche Route
Megavalanche attracts over 2000 competitors annually for the race that starts on the Glacier at Pic Blanc 3300m. You, too, can take this route for an unforgettable downhill experience. Between glacier snow, rocky paths and narrow tracks in the forest on the lower section, you will drop over 2,600m altitude in one descent. Return to Oz from Allemont by free shuttle.
