Ultra Raid de la Meije

Since 2011, the Ultra Raid de la Meije Mountain Bike Race has become a must for all mountain bike and adventure lovers. Why not give it a try?


If the Ultra Raid of La Meije is probably the most aesthetic ATV raid in Europe, it is probably also one of the most difficult.

Through mountain lakes where glaciers are mirrored, to the golden meadows of the Emparis plateau, the magic of the Galibier mountain pass at dawn with the Lautaret pass just under or the playful descents and breathtaking ascents, the URLM offers you an unforgettable adventure .

Because not every mountain bike lover is a champion or passionate about Ultras, the URLM can be perfect for you as it offers accessible options to the less seasoned mountain bikers; the hardest part is perhaps to choose your ride ! :)
There are several race options, all allowing you to explore the singletracks around La Grave-La Meije and Villar d'Arène
3 timed races: Elite Ultra (117 km and 5300 m uphill, Elite Ultra + and Raid Ultra (Stage 1: 73 km and 3250 m uphill / Stage 2: 52 km and 2400 m uphill)
7 touring routes, without timing: easier options (31 or 36 km) as well as more challenging ones (46, 48, 50, 58 or 73 km). Open to E-mountainbikers.


Overtures :

From Saturday 14 to Sunday 15 September 2024.
