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 plenty of beers and some good food. 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 Morzine Youth Downhill team, Elle Souter foundation, planting trees & building new trails.

For those who haven't been to our mates races before, these are super low-pressure,  friendly and social 'races'. Our aim is to bring the Morzine MTB community together and focus more on the "mates" than the "races", so if you're wanting to take things seriously then you've come to the wrong place.  Everyone is welcome here, come along, have fun and make some new mates, but don't expect a professionally organised World Cup race.

Check out what the Bike Morzine mates races are all about in the videos below.

17th July 2024

Downhill Pumptrack

Test your pumping, jumping and cornering abilities in the ultimate game of carrying speed.

A chainless run down Soylent Green, the fast flowy green track full of pump bumps, doubles and berms that connects Super Morzine to Seraussaix lift. The beauty of this event is that it is for EVERYONE, the trail is a green run so anyone can get down it but the faster you go the funner it gets and will really test riders core skills! 

We'd recommend an Enduro Bike but whatever rig you have will do the trick!

For those who haven't been to our mates races before, these are super low-pressure,  friendly, social and for the good of the Morzine MTB Community!
