If your entered your a week away from your first hit of Euro-rave sensation 666 Alarma for the start of the heats for the Megavalanche.
Once again Nukeproof is a proud sponsor of the Megavalanche, the event our Mega was originally designed to race (and named after). We will have a fleet of demo bikes available for demo’s through the Megavlanche title sponsor Chain Reaction Cycles display area. It’s also your chance to check out the Sam Hill Mega 275c WORX edition and some of the new Nukeproof Ride Wear.
We have deep roots at the Megavalanche and a lot to thank it for!
For 2018 the Nukeproof team return to race, with CRC–Mavic team rider Kelan Grant, Jackson Davis, Sandra Rubesam and the Wideopen team of Chris Cumming, Christo Gallagher and Connor Smith. Steve (our bike designer) and Rob (Marketing manager) will also be competing.

The Megavalanche is obviously a race, but offers so much more than just Friday- Sunday, its a awesome week of riding some amazing alpine tracks and trails.
If you want to check out what qualifying is like, ride on board with Kelan Grant last year:

Through the week we will be on the hill testing, creating some future edits and also shooting the “DROP FROM THE TOP”, a social experiment/ experience of riders first taste of the piste bashed 3300m up at Pic Blanc early on Thursday morning. If you see us (generally wearing some form of Nukeproof branded kit and all on Nukeproof’s) stop past and say hi (we may even have some free swag about)!
Anyone with a Nukeproof Mega and has any issues feel free to drop past the Chain Reaction Cycles tent and ask if we have the spare Nukeproof part you need (we havent got loads, but will have mech hangers etc.)
If your not there be sure to follow us on our instagram account as we will be putting out live video’s photo’s, behind the scene mess from Alp D’Huez
See you there!
