Méribel is no stranger to organizing international events since its part in the Albertville Winter Olympics of 1992. It’s been twelve years since France played host to the Mountain Bike World Cup Finals. It’s the biggest event in the Mountain Bike World Cup calendar: the world’s best riders from all disciplines (Downhill, Cross Country and Trial) come together to contest for the final podium of the season!
The technical tracks, spectacular performances including a freeride playground and an exceptionally high quality of natural talent will bring new value to each race.
The location at “the Chaudanne” will allow everyone to be at the heart of the action! The mountain biking world will have its eyes fixed on Méribel! Due to the growing fame of these disciplines, the large number of spectators expected for this event demonstrates the importance of these finals. Open to everyone, these disciplines are attracting more and more followers in France and are leading to a growing public interest in the sport.
