TransAlp: From Nice to Montreux - Jérôme Clementz
The genesis of TransAlp.
In September 2017, Jérôme Clementz and Pauline Dieffenthaler made a trip through the Alps to tackle the most iconic passes. Not on the tarmac like road bikers but on the most beautiful MTB trails on their enduro bikes. They saw a path from the Mediterranean sea to Geneva Lake to go over seven legendary passes in only 7 days: Col d’Allos, Col de Vars, Col de l’Izoard, Col du Galibier, Col de l’Iseran, Col du Petit Saint Bernard and finally Col du Grand Saint Bernard.
By watching the Tour de France, Jérôme Clementz realized the roadies were riding along majestic alpine landscapes. He also drove several times through these landscapes but did not have time to explore because he needed to go to the next competition or event. His dream of coming back to take time to ride some proper downhill took shape.
