The Stone King Rally launched off the back of the 10 year history of the famed Trans Provence adventure Enduro in the Southern Alps. The Stone King Rally is about a journey. Yes some segments of the route are timed but the experience goes so far beyond that. To have 6 back-to-back days hiking and riding your bike through some of the planet’s most breathtaking mountains, discovering ancient pathways that connect the hidden valleys and towns, meeting people who call the region home along the way, and sharing the experience with like minded people.
The Stone King Rally also about more than just one race event each year. The organisers make the route available to the public after the race event has taken place in order to bring more people to this spectacular region so that they can experience the glory of these trail networks and bring new visitors to the little towns along the way. Get a feeling for what it is all about and what it took to create by watching the video below, and then add it to your bucket list!
Our good friend Dan Dobinson was lucky enough to be a part of the inaugural Stone King Rally in 2022 and the stories he told afterwards were the stuff of legends. Descents exceeding 20 to 30 minutes, hail storms, perfect corners, breathtaking vistas, and hour long hike-a-bikes. Memories that will last a lifetime.
