    New German Self Support Race



    „Grenzsteintrophy“ – Germany's Mountainbike Boundary Experience

    The „Grenzsteintrophy“ (Boundary Stone Trophy) will offer Europe’s first mountain bike self support ride over a distance of approx. 1,300 kms (800 miles). Starting June 24th 2009, the GST will take off-road bikers along the former border that divided the former two German states FDR and GDR – 20 years after the frontier's fall.

    Just registered for the mondial du vtt freeraid classic,

    How come that gets so little coverage outside France? Anyone got any tips on riding it?

    The passportes du soleil (also registered for) gets loads of magazine coverage.

    Many may have already seen this thread (over in the endurance group), but thought I'd post a link for anyone who hasn't.

    MTB (Ultra) Endurance events in Europe?

    Cheers!

    I am a bit away from the Central parts of Europe: Finland. Tahko MTB is the biggest event here: options for 60, 120 and 180 km. This year it is July 3rd.

    Some impressions: Pics and words from the Finland's biggest MTB Event
    Contact: http://www.tahkomtb.fi/fi/Yhteystiedot.html

    Then there's Lohja 24, in the South of Finland on 22-23 May: a 24h race / event

    pics: http://mikon.1g.fi/kuvat/2009/lohja_24h/
    contact: http://www.mtb-lohja.com/joomla/inde...ntact&Itemid=3

    ---------
    For events in UK (and maybe others?), I'd browse the Bikeradar and Singletrack magazine websites. They tend to have pretty good information.

    ---------
    Germany, France, Spain, etc. surely have events and races going but I don't know any details. If all else fails, you might find something with Google.

    I hear great things about riding in Finland, however they say the only negative is its expensive. I am now sure if that means the fuel, accom or food....but if the trails are good, then a trip to Finland sounds great (for an Australian).

    If you come to Finland, definitely bring your own bike: rentals are rare and good ones even more so.

    To get here from "mainland" you'll have to drive a pretty long way and/or take a ferry, unless you are flying.

    Also, there's practically no "trail centers" or even marked trails: unless you are at an event, you need local people to show you the good routes. ... or go exploring and possibly find something.

    No mountains either. It is mainly "broken terrain" with smaller ups and downs.

    I keep some snapshots of my local trails at

    I'm riding in a team at "10 under the Ben" in Fort William, Scotland on May 15th.

    Its a Ten hour endurance race, with a ten mile lap, at the foot of Ben Nevis - hence the event name. Link below - entries still open.

    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.

    A forum thread in Finnish:
