    Reviewing Megavalanche:

    This is the route followed by the famous Magavalanche, the international definition of enduro madness. It descends a whopping 2500 metres, starting in cold snow and ending in hot dust. There are dozens of videos on Youtube.

    The problem with the downhill trails at Alpe D'Huez is the dirt. There is some bed rock but you're mainly on glacial moraine, ie, a combination of large boulders, small rocks, stones and fine clay. It makes for a bumpy ride. The cross-country trails vary but overall they aren't too good.
