Santa Cruz x Trans Provence

Posted by Brett S Kennedy on Thursday August 22 2013

Santa Cruz are ponying up with sponsorship of this year’s Trans Provence enduro stage race in France… here’s their press release on the event.

Vive le Trans Provence!

Santa Cruz Bicycles is très happy to announce we’re the new Official Partner of the Mavic Trans Provence 2013.

The event is a 7-day point-to-point rally-style mountain bike race from Sisteron to Menton in France. The winner is the rider who finishes with the lowest accumulated time from the 26 timed stages along the route.

Each stage rewards those with the ability to descend quickly on unfamiliar technical trails, making it pretty much the World’s first and only multiday point-to-point race which is won on singletrack, and NOT doubletrack or wide forest roads.

This is as ‘All-Mountain’ it gets. Last year, riders had to endure not only brutal stages but also torrential rainstorms and lightning strikes. Here at Santa Cruz, we spent most of that week watching from afar… frantically refreshing the results page just to check everyone had survived!

So get ready to go through it all again with us from 28 SEP – 5 OCT 2013 at:  www.trans-provence.com
