Edelweiss AMA Alps Challenge 3 CA3

France   |  Italy

Are you ready for the icing on the cake?

The third stage of the AMA Alps Challenge will definitely be the icing on the cake!

While Part 1 was all about Austria, Italy, and the Dolomites, Part 2 showed you around Switzerland and introduced you to the French Alps, the third challenge will get your mind blown and top it off with almost 30 passes!

Starting at the French Riviera in Nice, the deep blue ocean and vibes will give you an immediate sense of the savoir-vivre. The city itself is worth an extra day or two, it gives you the ability not just to see this amazing place but also to settle into the European time difference.

As soon as we´re off, we´ll head north and will soon cross the border with Italy, ticking off the first passes of the tour we´ll spend the night in a typical picturesque mountain village. In the next few days we´ll switch from the Italian to the French side several times. You tell us what side is more beautiful!

We´ll reach the most northern point of the tour, just a little south of Chamonix, where we´ll spend time in the Alps Challenge 2. On our way back we´ll stay in the French Alps and we´re pretty sure you can´t keep count of the switchbacks you ride everyday. Passing the popular skiing area of Valloire and several Tour de France passes will give you the best motorcycle riding ever!

Are you ready for this once in a lifetime adventure? Join Edelweiss on the Alps Challenge 3!

From Mitch Boehm, AMA Editorial Director:
"I can’t tell you how much fun we had on the AMA Alps Challenge Tours! With a mix of AMA members from around the country and a handful of my friends (none of whom had ever ridden in the Alps), we had a total blast each and every day, riding the rollercoaster-esque roads, negotiating the many switchback-infested passes, enjoying the amazing geography and history of the region, and of course sampling each day the food and – at night – adult beverages. It was the best Alps trip of my life, and I’ve been on several. So come play with us, either on the AMA Alps Challenge I, the AMA Alps Challenge II, or the icing on the cake at the AMA Alps Challenge III! You know it´s gonna be epic!"
