The date has now been confirmed for the Marmotte Granfondo Alpes for the 7th July 2019 with entries going online for sale at the end of the month.
It looks to be another busy event period for us at More Than 21 Bends with all the places on our Marmotte Weekend Tour already sold out, we still have a few self catered properties available but expect these to book out fast now the date has been confirmed.
We think La Marmotte is still the ultimate cycling test at 174km and with an enormous amount of climbing – over 5,000m. The route takes in some of the most famous climbs from the Tour de France including the Glandon, Telegraph and the Galibier followed faster than you would like by the infamous switchbacks of Alpe d’Huez. There are not many tougher single day sportives in the calendar.
Fancy giving it a go? Let us help with your accommodation, airport transfers, bike hire and training weekends.
We have been supporting guests for La Marmotte for over 10 years from our base in Bourg d Oisans and have plenty of local knowledge and expertise to help you make the most of your visit and the sportive.

The Col d’Ornon is an often overlooked climb here in the Oisans but really should be on everyone’s to do list while staying in Bourg d’Oisans
The climb is often used in the Tour de France (at time of writing last used in 2017) as a linking col to the bigger ones in the area. It is usually listed as a cat 2 climb but still expect it to take you from 40 minutes upwards.
The gradients are never steep and there are some beautiful switchback to navigate both on the way up and down. In fact the descent from the top to Bourg d’Oisans is probably one of the best free flowing descents in the area.
Its definitely worth a climb !
It’s a bumper cycling year here in the Oisans with a stage finish on Alpe d’Huez on the 19th July 2018 and a stage start from our very own Bourg d’Oisans the next day.
The town have already installed new mini jerseys throughout the town and all we need now is a few more cyclist in the mountains as the temperature starts to warm up for the season to really begin.

Just in case you still need persuading, have a look at some of this summer’s guest reviews :
Garth, August 2017
Thank you very much for a wonderful week′s cycling holiday. I had a wonderful time with a great bunch of people. Before the tour started I was a bit apprehensive about my ability to keep up with the group, but I needn′t have worried. I can′t praise your guide enough. He was supportive, friendly, insightful and was always around checking on us and helping (and) gave me the confidence to try and ride the Col du Telegraphe and Col du Galibier in the same day, which is something that I was extremely grateful for. Amy′s breakfasts were great as was her friendly greeting and smile first thing in a morning. My accommodation in both Bourg and in Sault was great! To finish, this was our third holiday in Bourg d′Oisans…and definitely the most enjoyable. The MT21B′s experience was very impressive.
Jonathan, August 2017
Our group of 10 US and Aussies had an incredible trip with MT21B climbing the classic TDF cols – an itinerary that covers so much in a week. Everyday was a highlight and made easy by their 5 star guide. Aside from all the classic climbs, we really enjoyed the Chateuaneuf du Pape lunch day and the Ventoux descent into Sault and the Nesque Gorge. No one wanted to come home.
Michael, August 2017
Everything went great and having Pierre as our guide for the supported rides was brilliant. He did an outstanding job. We had perfect weather and would highly recommend any cyclist to put this on their list of must do’s.
Adrian, June 2017
I would like to thank all the team for making the weeks stay so enjoyable. From the accommodation and breakfast to the bike rental to the guided tours everything was organised brilliantly. I really appreciate all the hard work in making sure the week was so successful for all members of the tour.
