SWISS EPIC – Pure mountain biking heaven in the majestic Swiss Alps

The Swiss Epic is a demanding yet rewarding 5-day stage race. With a fresh new route each year, it’s a unique test of endurance, resolve and skill with the staggering beauty of the snow-capped, jagged skyline set as the perfect antidote to the physical and mental demands of off-road racing. Two-person teams, top professionals and ambitious amateurs alike, explore the seemingly endless, magical trails, staying overnight in Davos, St. Moritz and Lenzerheide– an unforgettable Alpine experience!

As I stood waiting on the cold, high altitude start line, I nervously looked around; the town square was awash with a sea of branded Lycra, skinny tubed carbon machines rolled past like prancing ponies, all steep angled and whisper light. We could not have looked more out of place, baggies, EVOC packs, hard hitting all-mountain bikes and unshaven legs (well just me anyway).

The new Perskindol Swiss Epic, fits its name. You don’t need to speak the language to appreciate how tough the 400KM event, that takes in the Matterhorn and Verbier, with 12KM descent’s, 15,000 meters of climbing, would be.
