Change in format and location for the 2019 event

The event will be a group ride. Please ensure you have the correct bike set-up. We strongly recommend 28mm tyres and above.
The ride will not be:
- Timed
- Supported
- Marshalled

With the emergence of gravel riding, we thought it would be a great opportunity to showcase the wide diversity of riding in the Val de Bagnes region, using the smooth descents on tarmac and the climbing on the numerous quiet gravel roads that zig zag through the fields and forests throughout the area.

REGISTRATION: This year we will ask a small entry fee of 30chf. This can be paid on arrival.

This will include:
- Coffee & Croissiant on arrival.
- Pasta & Beer
- Sponsor protein
