The exposure grade describes the potential consequences of falling or slipping off the path.
Low Exposure: The path is on completely flat land and potential injury is limited to falling over.
Medium Exposure: The trail contains some obstacles such as outcroppings and rock which could cause injury.
High Exposure: Some trail sections have exposed ledges or steep ascents/descents where falling could cause serious injury.
Extreme Exposure: Some trail sections are extremely exposed where falling will almost certainly result in serious injury or death.
The Maxi Avalanche is an enduro race in the vein of the Mega Avalanche.
The Maxi Avalanche descent down into the burgeoning mountain bike destination of Ainsa is a superb enduro shuttle whether or not you're racing.
The singletrack off the pass is loose, steep, and narrow, funneling into a technical sidehill between tight trees.
Lower down the grade mellows, bursting out into a beautiful alpine sidehill singletrack, with significant exposure and fall danger on the downhill side. As the trail drops lower and lower it gets more and more technical, with some of the most challenging rock gardens actually located in a small village next to a farmer's field.
The final portion of the trail changes dramatically, flowing down a swoopy singletrack with air opportunities and long sight lines—a rewarding finish to a challenging day!
