The Raid Evolénard will host the European MTB Marathon Championships on June 19 and 20 in the Val d’Hérens. In order to allow mountain bike fans to make the most of this special edition, the organizers will propose in the next few weeks numerous experiences on the LivXP platform, whose aim is to put fans and athletes in contact. Webinar series, special packages to discover the region, trips to win, products signed by the champions, there will be something for everyone. And if not, you can also send us your suggestions!
A series of videos to discover the Raid Evolénard
The COVID-19 pandemic and the snow that persists on the course continue to make it difficult to recognize the course. To remedy this and to allow riders to familiarize themselves with the course, the organizers have set up a series of three video sessions. Swiss mountain bike legend, multiple world champion and Olympic medalist Christoph Sauser, will open the series on May 26 from 8:00 to 8:30 pm. Sauser, who had the opportunity to ride the course in the last three editions, will focus in particular on the optimal choice of mountain bike for the requirements of the course. Ariane Lüthi and Urs Huber, who have won several times in Valais, will follow him on May 2 and May 9 to talk about preparation and race management. These sessions are open to everyone and free of charge. Interested people can already register on LivXP to send their questions!
In order to allow participants to make the most of their stay and to make them want to come back to the Valais, the organizers are also offering a discovery package at an unbeatable price of $30. This package will give the right to a raclette and a Lattesso drink once the finish line is crossed, and will also offer the possibility to take part in a surprise activity offered by Evolène-Région Tourisme. And to discover the region in another way, the package also includes a day of skiing in one of the region’s ski areas (Espace Dent Blanche, Télé Mont Noble, Télé-Nendaz).
A magnificent Anako Lodge stay to be won!
And above all, everyone who buys this package will automatically take part in the draw to win a stay for four people at Anakolodge from June 2 to 5, during which they will have the opportunity to discover the course with former Belgian champion Frans Claes, 8th at the last MTB marathon world championships.
Many more surprises to come!
In the coming days, many other offers will be added to these experiences. Packages for children, stays during the race weekend, meeting with the athletes, the organizers will continue to use their imagination to make you live a magnificent 2021 edition of the Raid Evolénard! And if you don’t find what you’re looking for among our offers, LivXP also gives you the opportunity to make wishes, which we will of course try to grant!
