Mountain Biking

Mountain Biking in Les Gets and throughout the Portes du Soleil is phenomenal!  It is by far the largest and the best place in the Alps. Les Gets has regularly hosted the World Cup, World Championship XC and DH competitions.

Les Gets will host the Mountain Bike Mercedes-Benz UCI World cup.  Les Gets is back in the world tour with the organization of the MTB World championships in 2022.  Les Gets resort was chosen as the host to the UCI Mountain Bike World Championships presented by Mercedes-Benz for Downhill (DHI) and Cross-Country (XCO) from 24 to 28 August 2022, having previously hosted four rounds of the Mercedes-Benz UCI Mountain Bike World Cup for the same disciplines in 2019 & 2020.
