The holy grail of all cyclists
Every cyclist has once heard the name of this legendary cyclosportive. The Lepape Marmotte Granfondo is not only an unmissable international cycling event, but also the most important one day summer cycling event in the Alps, after the Tour de France of course. Limited to 7,500 participants, the event is a real success and arouses the envy of cyclists around the world, as demonstrated by the incredible rate of 88% foreign participation with more than 6,600 foreign cyclists.
About : Lepape Marmotte Granfondo
It takes tenacity and courage to overcome the 186 kilometers and 5,000 meters of climbing elevation of the course. The cyclists will need to complete 5 of the most legendary passes in France: the Croix de Fer, the Télégraphe, the Galibier, the Lautaret and finally the ascent of Alpe d’Huez.
A new route for the 40 years of La Marmotte
40 years worth celebrating! For the occasion, the La Marmotte Granfondo’s team has decided to offer an extra challenge, the Marmotte Ultra. The participants run/cycle/compete for the classic version of the route but once they arrive in Alpe d’Huez, they will continue heading to the Col du Sarenne, then descending the pass and once again climbing up Alpe d’Huez.
