Important information about the paddock area during The IXS Swiss Downhill Cup in Verbier
Considering the number of other events taking place during this last weekend of August, and due to the lack of free space in Verbier, the race organisers are forced to move the racers'paddocks down to Le Châble.
Racer's area/Paddock/Spectator (parking in Châble)
Téléverbier - Gondola station
chemin de la Gare 5, 1934 Le Châble
However, the gondola ride between Le Châble and Verbier takes about 15 minutes, while it use to be much longer to pedal up from the Sport Center.
This new location has many benefits:
- The riders won't have to drive up to Verbier
- A bigger area for the paddocks
- A skatepark/pumptrack area nearby
IXS Swiss Downhill Cup 2017 :
In the event of a small mechanical problem during the training sessions, basic tools will be at your disposal in the finish area in Verbier.
Several hotels in Verbier offer special deals for an accommodation closer to the race area. The list is available here: Accomodations.
The racers who have a accomodation/hotel will be the only ones allowed to drive up to Verbier.
Please also remember that the race track will be partly closed 2 weeks before the race for the preparation.
See you soon in Verbier!
