This is the first time the Enduro World Series has visited Samoens, which sits high in the French Alps. Expect a classic French style enduro, racing will take place over two days with just one practice run per stage. The tracks will be long, but riders will have the advantage of lift access to give their legs a break between taking on the steep, rugged and technical Alpine terrain.

trail not here any more, same with pretty much a the trails on this side of the hill despite the trail maps handed out by the lift company showing them open. just avoid samoens and morrilion completely, the whole network is a joke despite a few good off-piste trails made by locals.

Obviously a previously planned DH race route that is now just a few footpaths and a stretch across a field that is fenced off. Still possible to ride.
