One of the questions most frequently asked about trails and mountain bike destinations is: do locations still exist where trails are intact and unspoiled? Are there still trails to explore and ride outside the bike parks? Yes we believe so! One of the best examples? La Thuile, not by chance our new destination for round IV of the 2014 Series!
La Thuile Enduro 2014 Launch Teaser
It is clear, La Thuile is well known as a winter Mecca for freeride enthusiasts: waterfalls, glaciers, peaks above 4000m all around, and the spectacular Mont Blanc dominating the landscape.
But this stunning location will soon make summer riders fall in love with it as well. Well-equipped and fast uplifts, immense wooded slopes, wide dells and, most important, an endless network of trails to discover!
Bring out your spirit of adventure, the primal instinct that only enduro recognizes and bring back to life the trails… La Thuile is ready and waiting for you! Come and discover the incredible network of tracks, trails and roads left by the tough past this part of Italy endured, where the First World War, coal and silver mines scattered mountains, cols and vast open meadows with impressive singletracks and trails to ride. There is something for every taste: scenic enjoyment, adventure and the sheer rush of adrenaline!
For the first time ever, the race courses will be truly fresh and unknown, even to local riders: the competition will be exciting as never before.
We are sure that La Thuile will be one of the most intriguing venues for the 2014 EWS series, and soon one of the dream destination for riders.
When,personalities such as Anka and Sven Martin, Tracy Moseley, James Richards, Valentina Macheda and Manuel Ducci visited its trails between different rounds of the EWS, they couldn’t not love it more! Now La Thuile is ready to open the door to the wider public and it is just waiting for summer to show everybody its own extraordinary promise of natural trails!
