100 NEW SPACES (50 TEAMS) FOR MERIBEL 2023
& NEW SHORT-COURSE CATEGORY
We are very excited to announce a new Enduro2 course format that will see even more people to join the party this summer. Bring it on!
Registrations will re-open at 20h00 CET on Tuesday 7 March 2023 and will sold be on a first-come first-served basis. (This includes anyone currently on the wait-list). We will release 50 new team registrations for the new ‘short course’.
We’re also allowing existing registrations to transfer from the full course to the short course. All spaces that are released for the full course through this process, will be available for new registrations on Tuesday. We hope this will be around 20 teams, (but it’s hard to predict). If the registration shows ‘closed’ or ‘full’ after Tuesday at 20h00 then this means there are none left, and we won’t be releasing any more this year, sorry. We’d suggest trying the shorter course…it’s still a big course and an the plus side, you’ll have even more time and energy to enjoy the after-party!.
New Short Course Format
The new ‘short-course’ option will offer approximately 70% of the racing of the full course. It will take-in the most of the same superb stages, but will miss out one or two of the most difficult (Black-grade) trails, each day…as well as skipping the biggest climbs.
When we say ‘Short Course’, this is relative to the infamously big days of the Enduro2 full event. Better named as ‘shorter’ course: it will still involve 3 days of racing and 3 to 5 big stages each day, with total stats of ~7500m descent and ~750m of climbing over the 3 days. (That’s still bigger than many other Enduro races that we know about!).
We feel that the shorter course is a perfect intro for Enduro2 first-timers, or teams who are eager to have time to spare time to enjoy some extra relaxation (or more party!) each day. It’s also suitable for those strong but younger riders out there. So, for the first time, we will allow riders from 12 years old to register a team, when riding with a responsible adult. We’ve created a new category so you can have your own fight for the podium: Father/Son and Mother/Daughter teams – this is your time to shine!
The entry price for the short course is €239 per rider (instead of €289) and includes all food, lift-passes, entertainment and other extras that are included in the full race.
For the Full course we have these race categories: MALE / FEMALE / MIXED / E-BIKE / 77+ / 100+

I’m Already Registered for Meribel 2023 – Can I Change to the Short Course?
Yes! Please check your inbox – we will send instructions separately about how to do this within 48 hours from now. Your team ‘captain’ will need to register your change online before Sunday 5th March at 23h59 CET.
We will automatically refund the 100 Euro team entry fee difference, to your credit card.
Anyone that transfers to the short course in 2023 gets a guaranteed entry for the full course in 2024.
Still Need Accommodation?
We’ve had a few twin-room cancelations at the Enduro2 Central Hotel. Book Now, if you want one.
Still Looking for a Team-Mate?
You’re not the only one! We’ve had at least 20 separate requests my email so far from people looking for a race-buddy. Yet you all seem a little reluctant to use our team-mate finder forum. Please, don’t be shy! At past Enduro2 we know for sure that newly formed teams had some of the best times riding together. Don’t miss out simply because your local group of riding friends are not able to commit to join you.
Of course, you can always bag a team-entry for yourself now, and chose your team-mate later on (we allow team-mate additions and transfers right up to 14 days before the race).
