Blake Does The Megavalanche

Published on July 15th 2017


Blake has wanted to take part in the Mega since he first slung a leg over a fat-tyred bicycle, and this video captures Blake’s whole adventure - from arriving in Alp d’Huez and finding out about the infamous race; to getting into shape out on the trails on his new Nukeproof Mega enduro bike before taking part in the race… Subscribe to GMBN: Get exclusive GMBN gear in the GMBN store! The French town of Alpe d’Huez may be famous for it’s 21 hair-pinned climb in the road cycling world - but amongst mountain bikers it is known as home to the Megavalanche - the gnarliest MTB race ever! The Megavalanche is a mass start Endurance Downhill race that starts at the dizzying 3300m height of Pic Blanc - on a ferociously steep and rocky slope that leads riders to a glacier. If riders survive the glacier they must navigate miles of savagely rocky single track, before passing through Alp d’Huez and into steep, wooded trails at breakneck speed. If things go well racers will arrive in Allemond - some 30km later - after a whopping 2000metres of descending.
