"The French National DH Championships in Morzine marks the return of top class downhill racing to Morzine, in the heart of the Portes du Soleil region." explains Christophe Mugnier, Director of the Morzine-Avoriaz Tourism Office. 

"Mountain biking is booming here during the summer months and some of the most famous riders in the World now choose Morzine as their training base. For the French champs, a brand new track will be created on the Pleney slopes.  The infamous steep fast gradient promises spectacular racing, and the easy to access for spectators will make this a great show for everyone."

Syndicate rider Loris Vergier will be there to compete for National honours with the full backing of his team.  For the past few seasons, team mates Greg Minnaar and Luca Shaw have used Morzine as their home from home for training and, erm, not training.  Meanwhile team mentor Steve Peat has even taken up residency!

Le pleney, Le Playground, Le Morzine.

We are so stoked on this news after many years pushing the Morzine Tourist Office for more trails and to develop the towns MTB infrastructure and it looks like they are finally listening, we just needed an international company to come in and wave some weight about. 

Get out here, enjoy all that Morzine and the epic Portes du Soleil mountain bike area has to offer and we will see you on the trails or in the pub!! Win or loose were on the booze (Wyn Masters, Legend)

We have been in love with Pila for over a decade. Anyone who has been there will be too. It's the epitome of a perfect day trip and what makes Italian locations so exciting to visit. The trails are fast, beautifully thought out, maintained properly and the coffee is amazing!

A relative unknown in the mountain biking world Leo has broken the internet on more than a few occasions with his wild yet effortless style on a bike. Originally from New Zealand Leo and his sister, Veronique came over to the UK for easier access to trails and the vibrant UK mountain bike scene.


The 2018 French Downhill National Championships went off in dramatic fashion over the 26th - 28th of July. Weather played a huge part in the event, with the course every bit as we thought in our track check, fast, loose, with plenty of technical off camber, fresh loam and demanding steeps that became treacherous in the slippery conditions for finals!
