Giovedì 3 luglio 2014: European Whip Off Championship

The beauty of this event is there are no rules!  Developed by Sven Martin, a mountain bike photographer who knows his whips, this event will bring the racers and the freeriders together to end the argument once and for all – who has the best style? You can’t buy it and while you might not pick up a factory ride for winning, you will get the respect of every single rider in Les 2 Alpes.

4.30pm: registration on place
5pm: training & contest. Meeting point at Bike Park area.

Document to present for the registration on place

Il 3, 4, 5, 6 luglio 2014: Poligon DH – iXS European Cup

A rare opportunity for those without UCI points to go head to head against the best downhill bikers in the world!  The iXS European Downhill Cup will roll into the Les 2 Alpes valley this July for the only French round of Europe’s premier downhill mountain bike race series. After having held a stage of the World Cup and the coupe de France VTT descente, Les 2 Alpes has decided to modify the 2012 course to make it shorter with more accessible jumps, but just as spectacular!

For the 2012 and 2013 edit, 10 of the 20 better world downhill riders had confronted on this new track: Mick & Tracey Hannah-Team Hutchinson United, Danny Hart, Andrew Neethling, Marcello Gutierrez -Team Giant, Marc Beaumont, Tayler Vernon, Rachel & Gee Atherton-Team GT, Brendan Fairclough, Nick Beer, and frenchies as Aurélien Giordanengo, Fabien Cousinié, Thibaut Ruffin & Myriam Nicole.

By the numbers: 2500m long with a 700m vertical drop!

This year promises more accessible features alongside big gap features and an added double track so that everyone can enjoy the course: a plan always committed but made more accessible in 2014 with some big gaps with double trajectories so that everybody can take advantage completely of the event. The world’s top ranked downhillers will be present and it will be a great opportunity for amateur riders to compete against the best.

The best world downhill riders will be present as well as lots of foreign competitors who follow this famous IXS European Cup and it will be an once-in-a-lifetime opportunity for those who have no point UCI (amateur descenders) to confront with the best descenders of the world!?

Il 3 e 4 luglio 2014: GT Dual Speed & Style

Huge success of Crankworx Les 2 Alpes 2012 & 2013

.  An innovative Dual course located in the heart of the Bike Park. Riders will compete « in battle » on the dual. While this is a head to head battle, style will be the ultimate deciding factor on the final results of this event.  Riders will be attributed a time bonus (in seconds) based on the tricks and style they show on the 2 jumps. Action and adrenaline merge to create a competition open to all (pros and amateurs) but registration is limited to the first 100 people entered. An original concept designed and directed by Pierre-Edouard Ferry and Ayton Concept.
