Mountain of Hell: a timeless MTB event

Return to the list

Mountain of Hell… Episode 16 «We are Samourai», in Les 2 Alpes on the 17th, 18th and 19th July 2015!
Unbelievably, it’s been 16 years since the Choucas Bikers and Les 2 Alpes Tourist Office organised this MTB event for the first time!

Riders from across the globe have once again signed up for this year’s edition!
From a total of 700 participants, around one hundred come from all over Europe, as well as Australia, Nepal and elsewhere….totalling 14 different nationalities. The MOH 2015 is made in «ALL OVER THE WORLD» to say the least!

I wanted to give a special mention to Chris Keeling, from Kathmandu in Nepal for his incredible list of achievements at the age of just 16:
1st - Megakids 2013
3rd cadet - Megavalanche 2014
1st - 2014 Nepal Junior MTB cross-country
2nd - 2015 Nepal National Downhill
Watch out guys… he’s right on your heels!

For those who are not yet familiar with the concept, it’s very straightforward:
- The race starts at 3,200 metres, with tyres in the snow... Yes, up on the glacier in Les 2 Alpes there’s snow even in the summer season, and the resort is reputed for its summer skiing!
- An enduro freeride descent with a good dose of adrenaline… 2,500 metres of vertical drop and almost 25 kilometres with just one word of advice: ride straight down… The first to the bottom is the winner! Just so you know, the best riders will be down in less than 30 minutes!
- An amazing atmosphere with concerts and different evening entertainment, combined with the infectious good humour of the Choucas team: Cédric, Boris, Titi, Nico and their «mascot», Pascal Veilex!
