WOF 2022 #33: E-Bike World Tour 2022 - Tignes & Val d’Isère (FRA)
Second stop of E-Bike World Tour 2022
Tignes–Val d'Isère E-Bike Festival 2022
July 29 to 30, Tignes–Val d'Isère (FRA)
As the second stop of the 2022 E-Bike World Tour (EBWT), the Tignes–Val d'Isère E-Bike Festival also involved some serious racing. The UCI-accredited E-Tour de Haute-Tarentaise attracted professional and experienced amateur riders from seven different nations (and from as far away as South Africa) for two days of sublime stage racing across 85km of high alpine terrain, including 6100m of climbing and 5900m of descent. Characterised by endless flowing singletrack, with some technical challenges and demanding ascents, the E-Tour de Haute-Tarentaise took racers from Val d’Isere to the hamlet of Bon Conseil on Day 1, and then back to the festival village at Tignes on Day 2.
