New E-Raid category from Evolène and Nax!

To celebrate its jubilee in style, the BCVS Grand Raid is launching a popular tasting tour on the hillside between Evolène and Grimentz.

Rally Grimentz, in hiking mode and gourmet stroll, without going through the Pas de Lona! This new category without a chronometer is particularly suitable for electric VTTs but open to all other VTTs.

Starting from Evolène, the E-Raid trail, with a 1500-metre vertical drop, will enable experienced mountain bikers to reach Grimentz in 55 km. The departure time is flexible and is between 8 a.m. and 9 a.m.

A second departure is scheduled from Nax. A difference in altitude of 900 metres and 30 km will allow anyone to participate to this great celebration. The departure time is also flexible and is between 10 a.m. and 11 a.m.
