“I am so happy to win! This one was very hard with a great fight until the finish. I am also glad to be alive with this crazy Glacier! My Genius LT Plus, with 29er wheels was the weapon for it!”

Remy Absalon, sponsored D3O rider, won his 4th Megavalanche event in l’Alpe d’Huez, France. Having become a bit of specialist of the Megavalanche, one of the most famous and crazy MTB downhill marathon tracks in the sport, Remy claimed a first win for D3O partner brand SCOTT and the SR SUNTOUR team.

The 21st edition of the event involved 2000 riders across 20 different countries, all bidding to cross the line first in the 20km long race.

At the peak of the Pic Blanc, the riders had an agonising three hour wait until they could take off on the steep, icy slope. Prepared with his SCOTT Grenade Pro knee pads featuring D30®, Remy made a good start, finding himself in 6th position. In the second section of the race, Remy overtook riders at incredible speeds of more than 100kmh, taking himself out of the snow and into the rocky segments.

Leading into the physical uphill middle section of the race, Remy was lying in 2nd. However, after a strong finish on the flat roads, Remy went on to win 1st place with a 30 second margin.

Remy’s next race will be the French EWS round in Samoens – France on the 19th-20th of July.
