At the same time as the Harleys days in Morzine, another major event took place in Les Gets, the 40th anniversary of the Mechanical Music Festival. This was an incredible weekend with the village full of music and performances from 10:00 in the morning until 10:00 at night.
From 14th to 17th of July 2022, Harley days took place in Morzine. A gathering of some 80,000 Harley enthusiasts over 4 days: big bikes, roaring engines, leathers, concerts, everything was gathered for a perfect edition after the cancellation of 2021 with as a highlight the concert of Status Quo back ten years later in Morzine.
Stage 10 of the 2022 Tour de France started in Morzine and finished 148.1 km later in Megeve. Even after 3 hours 18 minutes and 50 seconds, the race ended in an exciting photo finish between Magnus Cort, who was declared the winner, just ahead of Nick Schultz.
As well as the UCI Downhill, Les Gets also hosted the UCI XCO Mountain Bike World Cup at the weekend. It was the last event, taking place on Sunday, but it certainly wasn’t the least! Competitors came from all over for one of the biggest XCO Mountain Biking Events in the world and the competition was exceptional. The excitement of the day had us gasping at times, and our hearts were in our mouths on numerous occasions.
Each year the Pass’Portes du Soleil marks the opening of the area’s full lift system and once again, it did not disappoint! The 17th edition of the event was held over the last two weekends, and we were so pleased to be in the centre of it here in Les Gets. The combination of 80km of varied routes, 1000-2450m of altitude, enthusiastic mountain bikers, breathtaking views, and delicious local produce made for an amazing long weekend that we won't soon forget.
In Les Gets, the mountain biking season began the weekend before last, the lifts were running and the village was busy. Yesterday we had the finals of the famous Road cycling race – the Criterium du Dauphine in Les Gets.
