2020 has been an incredibly challenging year to date and good news has been far between; with this in mind, we are excited to share that the 2020 Swiss Epic, which is hosted in the breathtaking Graubünden canton of Switzerland, is set to go ahead as planned, in accordance with the Swiss government’s regulations.

“We are happy about the positive development in Switzerland and the good news,” said Felix Eichenberger, Managing Director of the Swiss Epic. “Our team works practically around the clock to expand the existing security and protection concepts.”

In 2020, riders travelling to the Swiss Epic will be treated to unrivalled experiences on the alpine trails of Graubünden as they make their way from Laax, to Arosa, before crossing the final finish line in Davos five days later, and 333 kilometres later. 

Upholding tradition, the Swiss Epic carves a brand-new route in 2020 and promises, between the start and the finish line, hundreds of kilometres of natural and man-made trails, views that will challenge perceptions of reality, and countless opportunities for riders to create memories that will last a lifetime.

“The best mountain bikers in the world, together with many ambitious amateurs, are celebrating the start of their competition season with us,” says Reto Branschi, CEO of Destination Davos Klosters. “It is a great pleasure for us to welcome the mountain bike community back to this unique experience in Graubünden. Together with the race organizers and the numerous helpers, our partner hotels will do everything to ensure that our guests from Switzerland and abroad have an unforgettable experience Week on the most beautiful trails in the world. “

“The well-being and health of all riders, team members and fans are paramount in all decisions we take between now and the event’s start in Laax on 18 August. We strive, more than ever, to offer our participants an exceptional and safe racing experience, ”concluded Eichenberger.
