Courchevel Dynastar X3

The ultimate mountain triathlon – cycling, trail running & ski touring – takes place on April 15th. Bike 13.9 kilometers, 6.3km run, 4.8km ski touring, whilst climbing 1880m in ascent. You can team up with two other people and each do one leg of the competition – you’ll be amongst some incredible athletes who do the entire race themselves. If running 6K isn’t on your to-do list it’s definitely worth heading out to watch these athletes in this awesome mountain race.
