    Trans Provence

    I just found out this weekend that there are still a few places available for the Trans-Provence.

    The Trans Provence is a 7 day trail riding extravaganza across the southern French pre-Alps. Last year (2009) was the first year of the event. The marketing tagline is the "The Definitive All Mountain MTB Race" and in my opinion it certainly is.

    The event is run in a rally format, that means you don't get timed on the climbs but once you get to the top the gloves come off and you hit the trails as hard as you can on the descending singletrail sections. Each day has 4 timed-5 timed descents on some of the best singletrail around with connecting (Liason stages) that have to be ridden by all participants but are not timed.

    Physically the event is hard, but it is definitely something for the best allround biker. The winner could just as easily be a XC rider who is technically good, a Freerider who is fit, or an all mountain type rider. Bikes used tend to be in the 140-160mm travel range with all mountain angles.

    If you are looking for something new and want to experience some great scenery and even better trails in an environment where you can make loads of new friends then the Trans Provence is a must do event.

    If you, for some reason, are in Finland on Saturday 04 September 2010 - and can get a bike - we have a group ride event in Tampere.

    15th Annual Tour de Tampere

    The start is in the Ratina stadium at 10 AM.
    Registration begins at 08:30. Admission is 15€.

    There's a choice of 3, 5 and 8 hour rides, from very easy to "long enough" and pretty technical.

    In recent years, about 200 riders have participated each year.
