Game Enduro

The game before the stakes!

Every year in early September, Val Cenis hosts the Enduro du Jeu. The mountain biking event in the heart of one of the biggest playgrounds in the Alps: La Haute Maurienne Vanoise.

On the program: mass start and special stages for time junkies, or leisurely "rando" mode for those who prefer to enjoy the singles at their own pace. Mini-riders are not forgotten: pumptrack in the morning, mountain bike challenges specially adapted for children and even a draisienne challenge in the afternoon for the very young! Big smiles guaranteed for parents. And of course, there's a barbecue with local beers, open to all in the evening!


 Mass start and pedal climb

The special stages have been thought out, identified and organized by Val Cenis 's instructors and guides to provide maximum thrills and variety. On Saturday morning, for example, there will be a mass start and a pedal climb! The events are open to mountain bikes and electrically-assisted mountain bikes.

Game rules

Parental consent

 From ski touring to cycling
The Enduro du Jeu is above all a story of bike fans, ski tourers and local riders. Here's what event co-organizer Cédric Marra-Robert has to say...

"Drawing on his Scandinavian experience, Fred Buttard of Upguides came to me with the idea of organizing an enduro at Val Cenis using the same format as a famous Norwegian ski touring race: a mass-start at gunpoint for 900m, a good drink at the summit to recharge the batteries before going hard (or not) downhill on the singles. The ascent and descent are timed, but the aim is above all to play 😉 before the stakes... The idea was to create a festival of cycling by bringing together different profiles of cyclists (tights-pipettes, endurists, Sunday hikers, sports enthusiasts...). Completely won over by the idea, I said yes without hesitation to bring my experience as a mountain biker. We produced the 1st edition in 2019 with the whole Upguides team. It was a resounding success (90 participants), which confirmed our choice of this format, and the second © edition was already in the works in our heads... Over the years, various partners have joined us to offer an even more attractive event: the l'Alternative association, the UC Vanoise, the Val d'Ambin campsite, the Tourist Office Haute Maurienne Vanoise. "
