Andorra Epic Pyrenees

Dates: 3 to 6 July 2024

Entries: Tier 3 entries available until 10 June

The shortest of the three Legend status Epic Series events Andorra Epic Pyrenees is set in one of mountain biking’s most celebrated playgrounds. Along with long Pyrenean climbs teams can expect exhilarating singletrack descents, including some in the sport’s most famous bike parks. Entries to the race are open until the 10th of June. Entry options include accommodation and ride only packages.

SPAR Swiss Epic

Dates: 20 to 24 August 2024

Entries: Tier 4 entries available until 1 July

The SPAR Swiss Epic showcases the amazing south eastern canton of Graubünden in all its glory. In 2024 the race will explore trails around Davos and La Punt in the Engadin, which means even more purpose-built mountain bike trails than ever before. Though the high mountain natural singletracks will still feature too, just to ensure you get the full Swiss experience.

FNB Wines2Whales

Dates: 1 to 10 November 2024

Entries: Tier 2 entries available until 30 June, thereafter Tier 3 entries are available until 30 September

South Africans need little introduction to FNB Wines2Whales, but international riders my need reminding why you should enter the Race with Serious Gees. Gees is spirit in Afrikaans and encompasses all the good vibes, from incredible trails and generally great riding to delicious meals, a luxurious FNB Rider Lounge, and a party atmosphere in the Savanna Chill Zone. It is the best way to end of the mountain biking year. Guaranteed.
