Enduro Racing im Zweierteam soll dem Enduro-Spirit auf neue Art und Weise gerecht werden
Race with your buddy: the best way to celebrate the sprit of enduro racing

We’re excited to announce one of the best mountain biking destinations in the world, Les Arcs, as the host resort. Stages Cycling now powers the Enduro2 event, and join Vango, Shimano and Fox Racing Shox as supporters of the 3-day race.

“Les Arcs is the ideal setting with its efficient lift system, huge 2,000m vertical drop and amazing singletrack from high Alpine down through mature forests to the valley floor” says Ali from event organisers trailAddiction. “We’ve wanted to do an event like this for several years, and things have finally fallen into place. The racing in pairs format will bring an extra dimension, and Enduro2 is going to be one of the most fun things you can do on two wheels”.

TrailAddiction (the team behind Trans-Savoie) have been guiding in the Les Arcs valley for 13 years, and know every centimetre of the terrain. State-of-the-art machine built Bike Park terrain, together with a mind-boggling quantity of secret paths and ancient trails ensure the riding is perfectly suited to the blind racing format, and the timed Enduro2 stages will challenge riders of all abilities.

“We’re so looking forward to being a part of Enduro 2,” said Matt Pacocha, Stages marketing manager. “Some of our brand’s most enthusiastic supporters are the pros who train for, and race, enduro on Stages Power. On top of training hard with power, our meter can be a pacing tool to complete the liaison ‘Stages’ without wasting too much energy… and, of course, we love shredding in magical locales too, so we’re looking forward to joining the adventure.”
