The Mercantourman XTREM Triathlon is a triathlon crossing in the form of an autonomous adventure that takes place in the south-east of France, near Nice. The objective is to leave the Mediterranean in order to reach the mountains of Mercantour. You will have to cycle through them to the village of Saint Pons next to Barcelonnette. The triathletes will have one of the most arduous trail crossings to cross the Ubaye mountains with the aim of arriving at Embrun, by the lake.
