Born in 2009, set to a format that would become widely-known as Enduro. It lived as a week-long journey of on-sight racing; a years-long adventure of uncompromising originality and fresh terrain. A life on trails, aspiring to inspire not just a race movement, but a yearning to ride bikes on awesome trails in big mountains.
After 9 editions, we felt we’d had a good run but that it was starting to feel like an album on repeat. So, in 2018, Trans-Provence stepped away for a while. To pay more attention to our kids, to think about the future, to re-immerse ourselves in the joy of trail discovery with less time pressure, with no strings attached. Our general conclusion was that things run their course; that the world doesn’t need our race forever.
However, owing to popular demand and our own inability to resist a good party, we are back in 2019 for one last Trans-Provence. One last celebration of what we always envisioned mountain biking to be about, set to the soundtrack of a whole fresh set of trails.
