The sunny single track
The first long-distance staged Raid in France, created in 2003. The first edition started in 2003 from Valencia to Gap. A hundred participants took the start of what will become a meeting point for mountain biking.
This raid is intended to promote the permanent itinerary of the PATHS OF the SUN, labelized Great Crossing of the Prealps with VTT. Initially the raid was run non-stop with 2 breaks of 4 hours mandatory. For reasons of safety and organization, the choice of stages in daytime was made after 3 editions.
This event is organized by the association Raid VTT with a close partnership of the General Council of Drôme and the city of Gap. This raid is considered EXTREME because of the very important height difference (+ of 7500 m) and the technical character of the proposed layouts.
The hiking formula is run solo and without a stopwatch. The opportunity to discover a route usually scheduled in 5 to 7 days. 550 mountain bikers take part in the departure every year.
The "elite" formula also includes a night stage the day before departure. It is timed and runs in teams of two (men, women, mixed). 80 teams are accepted on record to run the event.
This raid is reserved for MTB riders confirmed because of the physical commitment and technical difficulties of the route. You only need to register for this event if you are a confirmed mountain biker, able to train for 3 days, more than 7000 m of vertical drop and if you have a good technical level downhill.
In 2018 the SCOTT Paths du Soleil mountain bike race will start from Gap (Golf Bayard). At the end of 3 stages (Mens, Châtillon en Diois), the final finish will be judged at Aouste sur Sye after 230 km and 7600 m D +
