Video: Mavic Trans-Provence 2019 // Day by Day recap

Trans-Provence is a melting pot of mountain biking’s finest ingredient elements, or indeed a manifestation of what the organisers believe MTB is all about. In physical terms this means a week-long itinerary of true mountain wilderness, a huge and varied catalogue of awesome gravity-fuelled singletrack from the High Alps to the Mediterranean Sea. It exists since 2009 as a rally-style race which many past participants will tell you is more about the adventure of “live trail discovery” than the time on the clock. Enjoy the day by day video recap.
