Raid VTT – This outdoor challenge is designed to promote the ongoing CHEMINS DU SOLEIL (http://www.chemins-du-soleil.com/) itinerary, bearing in mind that the route of the challenge changes every year. This challenge is organised by the Raid VTT (Mountain bike challenge) in close partnership with the Conseil général de la Drôme and the town of Gap. This sports adventure is considered EXTREME due to its dramatic altitudinal ranges (+ than 7,500 m). The cycling package/formula (untimed) provides you with a three-day itinerary to cover a route that is usually planned over five to seven days (individual registration). The “elite” formula also includes a one-night stopover, is timed and is covered in teams of two (men, women, or mixed). This challenge is only for experienced mountain bikers given the physical effort required and the technical difficulties of the track. We can only register you for this race if you are an experienced cyclist able to cycle for three consecutive days over more than 8,000 m of climbs and ascents and have a good a good downhill technique.
