EMBRUN – MENTON [FRANCE] /// 18 - 25 JUNE 2016

Trans-Provence is a manifestation of what we believe mountain biking is all about; a melting pot of our sport's finest ingredient elements.

In physical terms this means a week-long itinerary of true mountain wilderness, a huge and varied catalogue of awesome gravity-fuelled singletrack from the High Alps to the Mediterranean Sea. It exists since 2009 as a rally-style race which many past participants will tell you is more about the adventure than the time on the clock.

Welcome to our website where you can get a taster for it all, or jump right in by signing up for the next Trans-Provence Guided Tour or Race.

• A fully signed 6-day itinerary which passes through a huge variety of different landscapes and contains more singletrack than any other 6-day MTB event.

• Detailed route description booklet.

• Groundbreaking multi-timed-stage-per-day format which creates excitement, but equally a friendly and sociable rally-style ambience.

• Vehicle uplifts each morning to the trailhead (intended to maximise the quantity of singletrack we are able to cover daily, not make the route "easier")

• Use of the Mavic® Trans-Provence event standard 1-man tent and thick air mattress

• Use of all campsite facilities at the quality sites at which our nightly camps are located

• Transportation of your kit bag --clothing and bike equipment-- from one camp to the next (i.e. your stuff will be waiting for you when you arrive at camp each afternoon).

• Break-down, transportation and set-up of your tent and air mattress, from one camp to the next (i.e. your tent will already be set up when you arrive at camp each afternoon)

• 3 meals prepared for you each day: breakfast, lunch (+ free-choice feed station salads & snacks) and dinner (with wine) cooked by the best catering team in the MTB holiday/event business

• Post-ride "apéro" food and rehydration on arrival at camp

• Care and attention from professional medical staff, where necessary
