Bike Morzine Mates Races

Self proclaimed as the Worlds funnest mates race series in Morzine, Bike Morzine mates races aren't races as you know them. No crappy tracks, no big egos & bon vibes only.

The Worlds funnest MTB race series in Morzine.

Fun, Light hearted and accessible to all, these are the 3 main principles of Bike Morzine mates races . These are not "races" as you know them; no pressure, no ego and crappy tracks and bon vibes only. The Bike Morzine mates race series provides a light hearted, friendly and interesting format to race against your mates.

These races are completely free of charge and aim to bring the Morzine summer community together over their love of riding bikes, all washed down by local beers and good food. Races you'll never forget & after parties you'll never remember. The races are free of charge to enter but please bring cash for a charitable donation, we use these races as an opportunity to raise money for many great causes, including the Elle Souter foundation, planting trees & building new trails.

After a 2 year hiatus due to the pandemic (didn't you hear?), we are back for 2022 baby!
See 2022 Morzine race dates below.


Beware, you may seriously enjoy yourself. Enter at your own risk.
BikeMorzine Limited is not liable for any damages to entrants and/or their personal property.

Downhill Pump Track Race


What the hell is downhill pump track?!

Downhill pump track is a concept we came up with to utilise the amazing flowy trails crafted on Super Morzine by the talented Avoriaz MTB. The race will be chainless and held down the "Soylent Green" trail from the Zore to Seraussaix Lift, the trail consists entirely of rollers, pump bumps and flowy berms, meaning generating & maintaining your speed will be key to a good race!


These "races" are open to all, free to enter and seriously un-serious, race against yourself and your mates, there is no pressure here. Free entry, Good Beer and Bon Vibezzzz.
