Enduro racing gets a twist at the Enduro 2 Les Arcs race in the French Alps as you and a team-mate must finish together to win!

We missed the idea of simply adventuring with your best riding buddy; in starting & finishing together on all the fun parts, not merely on the liaisons. We wanted the return the focus to camaraderie and friendship, of high fives and man-hugs, (girl-hugs, even better!) of stopping mid-stage to help your mate (rather than riding straight over their flailing body as they block your path to a fastest-finish). But how could this be achieved, whilst maintaining the key elements of any race: Challenge, Adventure, and Competition? Actually, the solution was quite simple: complete the whole event in teams of two riders!

On each stage you must start together and finish together, and thus you will following your partner throughout the stage. It’s still blind Enduro racing, but you’re very much in-it-together, you’re experiencing all the thrills and fun of the race, and at the same time. All those hilarious race-run near-misses and runs-of-your-life that no-one ever saw? Now your riding buddy is the only one who can judge, and this will perhaps be even more important that what the clock says at the end of the event!

Entries open at 18:00 GMT on December 1st for Enduro2, the event that delivers lift-assisted stage racing in teams of two in the French Alps. Last year’s sell-out event was awesome and hailed as the ‘Best Event of the Year’ by numerous competitors and journalists.

One of the finest mountain biking destinations in the world, Les Arcs, is again the host resort. “With its rapid lift system, huge 2,000m vertical drop and amazing singletrack from high Alpine through mature forests to the valley floor, Les Arcs is the ideal setting,” says Ali from event organisers trailAddiction. “Last summer’s event was amazing fun; the racing-in-pairs format really brings an extra dimension and tons of competitors told us Enduro2 was one of the best things they’d ever done on two wheels”. TrailAddiction (the team behind Trans-Savoie) have been guiding in the Les Arcs valley for 14 years, and know every centimetre of the terrain

Enduro2 is raced ‘blind’ over a ‘long’ three-day weekend, and blends state-of-the-art machine built Bike Park terrain with a mind-boggling quantity of secret paths and ancient trails to hype adrenaline levels. The timed stages take in over 12,000m of vertical descending to challenge riders of all abilities.


Enduro2 runs from Saturday 25th June to Monday 27th June 2016. Entry details, application, prices and availability can be found at the trailAddiction website
