Trans Savoie 2014 Day 1

Day 1 had more than everything expected in an enduro race

Trans Savoie 2014 started this weekend in the French Alps. The score: six days of mammoth descents and adventure in the Savoie region – home to some of the best technical singletrack riding in the world. The journey began at Val D’Isere and ends at Chamonix this Friday with over 100 racers along for the wild ride.

After over 4,750 meters of descending on day 1, and an hour on the clock, a familiar name was top of the heap as the fastest rider on the day, downhill legend Steve Peat. He was followed up by SPS teammate Neil Donoghue. Polygon enduro racer Jamie Nicoll, from New Zealand, ended the day in third.
