Super League Triathlon is heading to Jersey for the fourth time as the spiritual home of the Championship Series welcomes back the best athletes in the sport.

Swiss Epic 2021
the Swiss Epic is one of the MTB Epic Series’ flagship Legend events. The five-day stage race takes in 327 kilometres on its route from St. Moritz to La Prese, in Valposchiavo, before concluding in Davos. Teams familiar with racing in Graubünden will be aware of the volume of climbing the canton delivers, and the 2021 edition is no different in that regard. A demanding 11 000 metres of climbing separate the start, in St. Moritz, from the final finish line, in Davos. Remarkably, though, the accumulated metres of descent outnumber the ascent. A total of 12 700 metres of downhill forest roads, flow trails and natural singletracks await the 400 teams who will be taking on the challenge of the 2021 Swiss Epic in Graubünden.
