Pass’Portes du Soleil 2014 Dates Announced

You may still be clearing off the muck from this summer’s 10th annual Pass’Portes du Soleil MTB challenge, but the dates for next year have just been announced.  The 11th Pass’Portes will take place on 27th, 28th and 29th June 2014 and the host resort will be… LES GETS!

When the Pass’Portes started in 2004, there were 1343 registered riders. Last week 6700 people completed the challenge, the first 4500 of which registered to take part in the first 24 hours! And you might be thinking that in light of the bad weather on the Saturday of the Pass’Portes, there might have been quite a large drop out rate? But no, only 8% of people withdrew and didn’t compete…

Only 9% of the riders were female though, which seems a bit odd!

Injury wise, there were 27 reported injuries over the three days, which is lower than last year when there were an average of 23 injuries per day!

We’ll let you know when entries for the 2014 Pass’Portes are announced
