Europe’s premier mountain bike stage race takes riders through the magical trails of the Graubünden region, traversing rolling valleys, navigating lush forests and scaling vertiginous Alps.
The Swiss Epic is a demanding yet rewarding 5-day stage race.
With a fresh new route each year, it’s a unique test of endurance, resolve and skill with the staggering beauty of the snow-capped, jagged skyline set as the perfect antidote to the physical and mental demands of off-road racing. Two-person teams, top professionals and ambitious amateurs alike, explore the seemingly endless, magical trails, staying overnight in Laax, Arosa, and Davos – an unforgettable Alpine experience!
Athletes enjoy an all-inclusive, full-service package, which includes four nights of legendary Swiss hospitality.
From the day the race starts, riders need only look after their bodies, maintain their morale and enjoy the beautiful trails. Everything else is taken care of.
An early buffet breakfast is served each morning. Race support, water and carbohydrate drinks are available at water points throughout the route and trained medical staff are on course. At each stage’s finish line, riders’ bikes are cleaned by the bike wash team.
From the first to the last stage, rider bags are transported between the different Race Villages where riders can rest and enjoy a comfortable night’s sleep after a hard yet rewarding day in the saddle.
