Trans Provence sells out fast every year. It’s a heavily oversubscribed event that’s on a lot of people’s bucket lists. Watch the video above (and click through to watch all the other video’s on their Vimeo page) to see why everyone wants to do this race.

Entries are very limited. There’s only 85 places in total and 20 of those are already spoken for by pro riders and the like. SO that leaves the rest of us scrapping over a mere 65 spots.


How to enter

Check you’re not busy on 17-24 June 2017.

Trans Provence boss Ash writes: “What was the World’s first point-to-point Enduro stage event has, over the years, opened up a new frontier to gravity-fuelled excitement and wild, on-sight racing. This, the 9th edition promises to be no exception: 24 stages of natural singletrack descent (a total of almost 20,000m descending in total) through big mountains and hugely varied terrain from Embrun in the Hautes-Alpes to Menton on the Côte d’Azur.”
