MOUNTAIN OF HELL
17 July 2011 | News
Dainese will be the official sponsor of the 2011 Edition of Mountain of Hell, an exclusive event for MTB, Freeride and Downhill fans that will take place in Les Deux Alpes from July 15-17.
The famous Les Deux Alpes ski area will provide the setting for the 12th Edition of Mountain of Hell. An event with an undoubtedly intriguing name that over the course of the years has succeeded in amazing one and all by providing unique thrills thanks to the spectacle offered by the event’s fearless protagonists: professional riders in the saddles of their bikes.
The event scheduled for the third weekend in July will feature more than 400 riders along a starting line at a height of 3,400 meters a.s.l. atop a glacier who will then all go plunging downhill for an impervious 25 km long route to an altitude of 900 meters.
The challenge is a daunting one due to both the difference in height and the variability of the terrain, which ranges from ice to rock to dirt.
Dainese will be on hand with its own stand to display and let visitors try the products in its 2011 bicycle collection.
