UPDATE! If you haven’t entered Mavic’s video contest, time is almost running out. Entries are due Friday, and the winner will be announced next week. This fortunate rider will head to Nice, France for the Trans-Provence enduro in late September.
That’s right – the world’s leading enduro race, the one that has been sold out since registrations opened earlier this year, has one more spot. The only way to earn it is to shoot and edit a short film telling Mavic and all your viewers what enduro means to you and why you should go. At Crankworx Whistler, a panel of judges will make the call as to which videographer gets a plane ticket to Nice. Mavic riders Jeff Lenosky, Jerome Clementz, Anne-Caroline Chausson, and Fabien Barel headline the judging panel, so entries will have to withstand some scrutiny from these seasoned Enduro champions.
If you have not heard of the Mavic Trans-Provence, here’s a brief primer. It’s a point to point enduro, held in the mountains above Nice, France, from September 28 to October 5. That’s right – full 7 days of the finest, most technical riding you could ever dream of. The race itself includes 6 days, 280 kilometers of trail, 9000 meters ascent and 14000 meters descent. You’ll be timed on 23 sections of singletrack descent. For more info, you can visit the Mavic Trans Provence website
Still not convinced? There’s something for everyone. Mavic is giving away a pair of the new, 2014 Crossmax Enduro wheels to the runner up. Pinkbike went to La Clusaz, France to get a first look at these wheels
. And third place gets a head-to-toe kit of Notch apparel, helmet, and new Crossmax Enduro shoes.
Don’t delay, because the contest ends August 16. If you’ve already shot film for other projects, maybe it’s an easy re-edit to take a shot at the Mavic Trans-Provence video contest!>>>ENTER HERE<<<
