GRAN FONS MONTSANT BIKE BTT’19 is a sporting event that reaches its fiveth edition and thta uses the bycicle route of Parc Natural de Montsant: “La volta a Montsant en BTT”,for all lovers of the BTT people developed in a unique environment what the Natural Park of Sierra de Montsant and the Priorat, taking the point of departure and arrival to the charming village Ulldemolins.

The event aims to combine the sport of mountain biking in nature, landscape, land and Montsant project in Table, where you can taste the artisans and exclussiu products created in these parts, highlighting the olive oil, wine and, Tortillas spectacular in Ulldemolins juice.

 

The event features various distances with the intention to reach all:

  • Extrem: 95km and 2,800m D+
  • Adventure: 79km and 2,200m D+
  • Open: 39km and 1,014m D+
  • START: 28kms and 750m D+ (novelty 2019)

This proposal highlights the EXTREM and ADVENTURE tours where the entire back of the Sierra de Montsant is proposed, to most people who are part of the Natural Park. All sports up to the harshest winter country pedaling challenge. The difference between these hard runs, is where the journey takes ADVENTURE minimal return, while EXTREM makes the whole journey back with something extra. In these two paths pedaling is presented in a “raid” format, where the athletes will have to move along the track of your GPS and where neutralized add sections (roads and villages) and special stages in true “raid” style. Perfect combination of fun, strategy, technology, strength and endurance.

On the other hand, we also have some very engaging and fun travels less distance for those who are already initiated but dare not (yet) with large distances. The triangle between Ulldemolins, Prades and Cornudella de Montsant, allows us:

  • A route 39km to savor the best in each area.The name is OPEN travel. This route will be marked (GPS will not lack) and add a small stretch neutralized.
  • A novelty 2019: the smallest route is START 28kms. This route not pass to Cornudella de Montsant and for this reason is more easy in the phisic and technical. The best option to enjoy with your MTB the saturday mornning in an amazing mountains.

The sporting event has the support of the administration, the Natural Park of Sierra de Montsant, trademark upscale and specialty stores, which will support to create together a first-class event, organized by the Club CEAN and Naturetime Events technical support.

                                                                                  Ada Xinxó

Great to meet the spectacular landscape of the Montsant mountains, but little known place steeped in history, while enjoying Montsantbike and an added incentive that makes it different from the rest, their excitement and give timed requirement in the race. Personally I love this format and reach the hermitage of Sant Joan de Codolar and pedal along the path which continues to air the race is the icing on the cake!” 

 

 Christian Vazquez Guerrero      

Spectacular race around the Montsant, going through the best areas of the mountain of Prades and bordering the Priorat, very recommendable for any lover of pure BTT, and also this year with an electric category, there are no excuses. We be there!”

                        

 Veerle Cleiren


"The Montsantbike Extreme 2nd edition was my first long distance ride and I loved it.The format with timed stages 
where the cyclists have the possibility to recover in the provisions with drink and abundant food, makes the marathon
accessible for a wide audience. They were 5 hours, 95km and over 2000m pos accumulated with a good "cocktail" of
laughter, suffering, trialeras, trails, ... of pure nature in the heart of the Priorat and Monsant!
