Dear Fellow Enthusiasts                            

What better way to commemorate this enormous event than to confirm that the first hillclimb sprint in the North-East of France was on the 5th August 1906 - and to bring it back to life?

On this very same piece of road - albeit more gravelled and a lot narrower -gathered 50 c hauffeurs as they were called in those days,including three major car builders: Ettore Bugatti, Emile Mathis, and the Baron de Turckheim who was the head of Lorraine-Dietrich Automobiles.

One brave lady was accepted , a Miss Perigault,daugfhter of the President of the A.S.A Vosgien, the organising club.

The start at the heart of St.Maurice sur Moselle and the finish 9kms later remain practically the same.

Historally  and the whole region of the Hautes Vosges will be pleased to welcome you to St.Maurice sur Moselle on the 9-10-11 of August 2019 for this 4th Edition of the MHIBA.
