We at Tsaretta are proud to announce the 1st Edition of the Tsaretta Sportif, a two day biking event held in the heart of the 3 valleys. We, along with many of our regulars love everything Vélo. Therefore, we have put together a 2 day schedule including on Friday 26th a day out on mountain bikes, and on Saturday 27th a road race on a pre set course. Culminating in a mini Foodie festival, hopefully out in the sunshine using our outside space and close surrounds.
Some more detail:
FRIDAY 26th August – VTT/ Mountain Bike Day.
To celebrate or commiserate the very last day of lifts for the Summer 2016 season, we propose a full day out on the hill.
For those attending from LA, Coffee and Croissants will be served at Tsaretta from 08.30.
Those heading to Chaudanne from LA will get the 09.15 bus coming up from Brides.
General meet up and briefing in Chaudanne at 09.40, and then off up the mountain.
Please bring your own pack lunch, inner tubes, repair kit etc. The plan is to stick mainly to the Méribel valley for the best trails, stopping for a pic nic around Lac Tueda at 13.00.
Once the lifts have finally stopped, we descend using the Tougnette ridge to LA for beers and stories, there will be a prize for a democratically voted rider of the day. Tsaretta will be serving its Pizza and à la Carte menu from 18.00-22.00 if anyone is peckish.
Early to bed, there is a road race in the morning.
SATURDAY 27th August – Tsaretta Sportif Road Race
Following a pre set route, riders will leave LA en mass at 09.00, heading up in the direction of Méribel, then up to Méribel Village, down to La Tania, Praz, into Bozel, up to Pralognan, then up to Champagny. And then back along the valley base to Brides, and then a final climb back up to LA.
Coffee and Croissants will be served at Tsaretta from 08.15.
There will be a support vehicle placed in the Pralognan/Champagny area.
Expected time of arrival for the winning rider will be midday back at Tsaretta.
From 12.00 and hopefully outside, there will be Joey Sausage from Savoieire and one of our chefs kicking out an artisan BBQ, and Adam from Verre Gourmand providing a pop up craft beer and New World Wine bar. (No reservations taken for the BBQ.)
LIVE MUSIC will come from The Allusions, thats Sam, Pat and Lee. We hope for it to be a real family affair, so come and check it out, even if you are not into bikes.
There will be a prize giving for the winner of the Sportif and an award for Rider of the Weekend, as some « athletes » will be taking part in both days.
So that’s all for now, more information to follow. But if you are interested in signing up for the biking then please PM us with your name and which day you are interested in, then we will get back to you.
P.s. Please can you spread the biking love by sharing to two wheelers that you know. And anyone attending either day with a Go Pro or drone then please bring them along.
Get on your bikes and ride!
