Re- Route for La Marmotte 2015 new route details confirmed

Further to the continued closure of the road between Bourg d Oisans and the Col du Galibier, and the subsequent re-route of La Marmotte sportive which we reported previously, our friends at la Marmotte have now confirmed the new route.

The new route will be slightly shorter at 170km but will include 100m more climbing!

The start in Bourg d’Oisans doesn’t change and heads out along the valley and up the Col du Glandon, the descent is still neutralised but then includes climbs of the Lacets de Montvernier, Col du Mollard, and Col de la Croix de Fer, before the descent back to Bourg d’Oisans and the final climb to finish on l’Alpe d’Huez.

For guests staying with us on our More than 21 Bends Marmotte week, we will be going over to the new climbs at the start of the week so you can see what is in store for event day.
