La Marmotte 2016 goes online for registration on Monday 9th November at noon.
Since 1983 this epic 178 km tour with over 5,000 metres of climbing has been routed around our area of the French Alps.
Every cyclist knowns about La Marmotte and its illustrious climbs, including the Col du Glandon, Télégraphe, Galibier and a finish Alpe d’Huez, which is why the Marmotte attracts 7,000 avid cyclists every year.
In 2015 the organisation was forced to change the course following the collapse at the Tunnel du Chambon but we are advised that for 2016 the event is back to its traditional route including the Galibier once more.
As ever, spots for this race are in demand, so be quick to grab your race number for the Marmotte, or join us on one of our trips, include entry and we will add you to our group entry meaning you don’t have to spend hours on the notorious website!
Along with a couple of self catered self supported properties with availability, we have two options for 2016, our week long supported Marmotte tour covering the individual climbs in the week before the event and a simple Bed and Breakfast self supported option.
Details of both can be found on the website along with our other 2016 tours.
Registrations start on Monday 9 November at noon CET.
