Opening of the e-bike category on the departures from Verbier and Nendaz.

Indeed, after the already existing departures from Hérémence and Evolène, it is now possible to register from Verbier and ride the 125km on an e-bike and from Nendaz with almost 90km.

The e-bike route is identical to the official route, with the passage of the Pas de Lona. It is recommended to use 3 batteries when leaving Verbier.


Battery changes can only be made at the technical stations on the course, at the same places as the refreshment posts.
It is the runner’s responsibility to organise the transport of his batteries on the course – it is strictly forbidden to carry a battery with you during the race.
Due to the impossibility of checking and controlling the number of batteries used, there will be no podium for these starts.

Start times for e-bike categories

Verbier: 6:45 am

Nendaz: 6:45 am
