On the 22th of August 2015, don't miss the longest mountain bike race in the world !
With its 125kms and a variation in altitude of 5025m, the Grand Raid is the longest mountain bike race in the world.
The Grand Raid runs between Verbier and Grimentz. Three other departure points, along the course, are organised, of which one is in Nendaz. Rendezvous at 6h30 on the plaine des Ecluses to watch the bikers set off.
The participants coming from Verbier pass through Nendaz at around 7h45 for the fastest. They pass down the bottom part of the ski run from the Clèves and their descent via the steps next to the gondola departure station is well worth the effort!
