Quebecers are passionate riders who build and maintain new exceptional singletracks, year after year. After all, Quebec City – Mont Ste-Anne – is the only permanent stage of the UCI World Cup… where it all began more than 30 years ago.

More than 350 km of singletracks, built expressly and exclusively for mountain biking, surround Quebec City, a UNESCO World Heritage treasure. Thanks to the professional trail builders who value all the natural elements that they complement with wild and fun infrastructures. They rejuvenate large rock slabs, build bridges and oversize wooden gangways, create berms, etc. The local organizing committees have so much to choose from to create 6 exceptional stages for 6 days of 100% pure singletracks! 100% pure pleasure!

“Quebec has some amazing trails. Each stage had its own character. We rode everything from tight, technical rocky and rooty singletrack, to fast-flowing descents that would fit right in on the west coast.” Canadian Cycling Magazine


Challenging but accessible trails

The trails are very challenging but still accessible to all mountain bikers. That you are climbing or descending, you will ride breathtaking singletracks that demand steering at all times. You will need to challenge each km as none are a given. To make it accessible to everyone, on the longer stages, a shortcut is offered. 6 challenges await. You will need to conquer them one by one… km by km.  Distances vary from 25 to 45 km per day. To some who are not familiar with the specifics of riding in Quebec, it may seem short. Think again!


Winners average speed: below 15 km/h

Spain’s Tomi Misser, 2019 QSE champion and double 2019 UCI World Champion (XC and downhill), has completed the 6 stages at an average speed below 15 km/h. 25 km of riding in Quebec can equal 40 km on a lot of trails using access/fire roads, especially when climbing.

Ride the QSE to discover the most exciting singletracks in the world in the unique landscapes of Quebec.
