Morzine Summer Events
Les Gets World Champs 2022
Without doubt the most exciting event in the calendar, Les Gets World Champs 2022 is the one we've all been waiting for. The Worlds best riders, teams & bikes decscend on the legendary town of Les Gets for 4 days of racing which can only crown one World Champion!
Les Gets World cup has once again become an absolute staple on the World cup circuit and is reliably provides some of the most epic downhill racing the World has ever seen. Les Gets World Cup was a regular on the circuit through the early 2000's and we can all still remember Steve Peats heart breaking crash of Les Gets World Champs in 2004. After well over a decade without World Cup racing in Les Gets, it sure is good to have the Worlds fastest racers back in town.
Held on the Mont Chery side of Les Gets valley, the Les Gets World Cup course that we saw in 2021 links a few classic sections seen above with a shit tonne of new trail, flowing through the steep, loamy and widely taped woods, combined with wide open, flat-out grass sections. No wonder this track is an absolute favourite of the Worlds best, who spend as much time as they can riding Morzine and the famous Portes du Soleil either side of the event.
After being called as the best race track in history by a lot of the riders, the course for 2022 Les Gets World Champs will likely be vey similar to last years and if the past few years are anything to go by we're bound to see some incredible racing for the Les Gets World Champs in 2022.
There's something in the water in Les Gets that really makes for one of the rowdiest World Cup after parties you'll ever see, but you'll have to experience that for yourself.
