WATCH – Aftermovie Mountain Of Hell 2019

STORY BY Emmanuelle 9th July 2019

Celebrating its 20th birthday this year, the Mountain of Hell freeride downhill mountain biking competition is open to a number of international downhill experts as well as amateur riders. The event attracts up to 700 riders annually and consists of 2 races and 2 incredible routes over a three day period. There is also a children’s race too.

The highlight of the event is 25km of downhill riding on an unmarked route from the top of the glacier. Mountain biking addicts must pass through several posts, ride over snow, rocks, single tracks, steps, and sheer descents… The drop in altitude of nearly 2,400 vertical meters has previously been completed in a time of 40 minutes and is a truly physical and invigorating and makes this ‘hellish’ downhill live up to its reputation!
