This weekend the Mountain of Hell event returns to Les Deux Alpes for the 11th year. The freeride downhill MTB competition takes place over three days and is considered one of the most extreme on the circuit. Entrants have the chance to preview the course on Friday before qualification rounds on Saturday afternoon and the race on Sunday.

The course runs from Les Deux Alpes’ glacier at 3400m to the local village of Venosc at 900m, and last year Greg Doucende won the race with a time of 00:47:08:673. He’s entered to defend his title again this year but will be competing against the stiff competition of last week’s Megavalanche Jérôme Clémentz Australia’s top rider Mick Hannah and legendary US rider Eric Carter. With names like this, it’s set to be an incredible race, but the 500 entrants include amateurs as well as professionals.  For the FULL results click here.
