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.

Trees down everywhere in the lower part. Very negelected and hard to find the trail. Better to finish in Les Esserts. Lift company is still marking this and other trails on their map (00, 1, 18, 8) that essentially don't exist and are definitely not way marked. I wonder how many people get lost in the winderness because of this!

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.
