The start of Skyrace Des Matheysins will take place on the Matheysine (alt. 900 m), 30 km South Grenoble, French Alps. The first few km are pretty easy-going and will take you to the Devil’s Garden, a wonderful single on the mountainside.
From there, you will evolve on a line of peaks for nearly 6 km, with several summits between 2200 and 2400 m high, technical areas, snow, a panoramic view of all the surrounding mountains. The downhill is also very pleasant, with a very nice single track in the forest.
Local beer upon arrival.
