The Méribel Mountain Biking World Cup - THE DOWNHILL TRACK

From the riders point of view - Claudio Caluori rips it down the downhill track

 
"Even just walking down, I crashed a couple of times"... "That wasn't an orgasm - that was pure fear"... "This is what all the riders have been crying out for - now they have to deal with it... "Albert Einstein you were wrong, I am going light speed"... "This is the exact right track to decide who will be overall World Champion"...

Road Closure - La Tania to Méribel Village Closed for 4 Months

The La Tania to Méribel Village road has been closed since the 7th July and is expected to be closed for around 4 months, re-opening around the end of October. It’s always suffered from land slips and this is a major piece of work to sort it out properly hopefully. Further disruption is expected for the next two Summers as a separate road (in effect a bridge) higher up and away from the land slide area is created. Ferg has confirmed it’s not passable even by MTB, there’s a big fence to climb over and then French engineers wielding explosives… Pic Here
 

Note also that heading from La Tania towards Geneva via Annecy this Summer has major delays - there is no left turn on the main road (D1508) at the roundabout as you arrive in Annecy with all traffic diverted in to the centre of town. Definitely worth going via Talloires around the other side of the lake on the D909/909A at busy times. The other direction (heading from Annecy towards Albertville) is unaffected.
