The Perskindol 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 Bettmeralp, Grächen and Zermatt – an unforgettable Alpine experience!
