You can now sign up for one of the craziest cycling events in the world: Megavalanche! This mass-start long distance downhill mountain bike event on snow, is an insane descent of the Alpe d’Huez, but certainly not in the Tour de France way.

Megavalanche madness

Anyone over 15 years old with a “muscular” bike (according to the registration form) can enter. But there is a limit of 2,000 entrants, so grab your chance. Some treat this is as a once-in-a-lifetime experience, while others are racing for the win, in what certainly looks like the most insane ride you could imagine. This film from 2018 is a classic in the Prologue offices. In 2019 there is also an e-Megavalanche, exclusively for e-bikes!

2018 was a good year
