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.
