Derby des Becs - Bendolla 10

Les Becs derby


Open to everyone, take part in this race by reaching Restaurant Bendolla as quickly as possible from the summit of Les Becs. Adrenaline guaranteed!

The traditional Les Becs derby is a popular speed race in Grimentz-Zinal that’s not to be missed! Organised in collaboration with the ski club and telemark club, the Derby is open to all and families can even compete in their own category.

A mass start event, similar to the 24 Hours of Le Mans, and an elevation of 740m (starting from 2,870m and reaching 2,130m), speed freaks and adrenaline junkies will feel right at home.

Try to be the fastest and win our famous derby!

After the race, a pasta party hosted by Jo Mettraux will be held at the Restaurant de Bendolla.
This evening, open to all, will bring this friendly family event to a close in style.
