Le MercantourMan XTREM Triathlon evolved. We want to keep our DNA: the mountains. But also our values: those of adventure, autonomy, discovery, freedom, challenge and surpassing oneself.
We also want to integrate a new one: that of accessibility!
It is for this reason that the Initial Full crossing that you know and which brings the Mediterranean Triathletes to reach Embrun via the Mercantour and Ubaye mountains on road or gravel will continue but it will take place every 4 years. This Triathlon is magical and legendary, it must continue to live. Please note that the next edition of the initial Full Crossing will take place in 2027.
For now and for the years 2024-25-26, we would like to continue to familiarize you with our MercantourMan XTREM in the mountains on somewhat less demanding routes but above all which will not require staff and which will keep our DNA and our values.
A Half format therefore appears in order to make this notion of xtrem triathlon in total autonomy even more accessible. The objective is to familiarize you with our concept so that you discover the greater distance the following year and why not the Full Crossing in 2027.
Our vision is that of travel, discovery and physical surpassing. We were the first in Europe to offer you a Gravel Triathlon and we want to continue this path. You will have to surpass yourself to complete your challenge and it is by brandishing your Rudius (wooden sword), symbol of freedom that you will assert your status as finisher. Incidentally a beer in the other hand.
