The next Mighty Marmotte will take place on Sunday July 3rd, 2017.
With over 5000m of climbing over some of the great Tour classics and a finish up the 21 bends of Alpe D’Huez, La Marmotte represents a unique challenge among French sportives.
The Marmotte is traditionally run over 174km and considered the ‘Benchmark’ sportive by most riders. The course will be the traditional clockwise ride over the Glandon, Telegraph, the mighty Galibier and Alpe D’ Huez.
For 2017 Velocamps (Official Tour Operator) are offering a ‘Value’ proposition of a quality self-drive chalet package based in Old Alpe D’Huez village. The package includes 4 nights accommodation right by the finish line in the resort with several start options options. Marmotte entries sell out every year so register with us as early as possible.
Option 1: This is our ‘Entry Only‘ option. Entries are normally in the mid-bunch around 3000-3700. These are available on a limited availability only.
£140.00 ( SORRY- SOLD OUT)
Option 2: This is based on 4 nights self catered in our quality chalet in the heart of Alp d’Huez overlooking the summit of the finishing climb, just as you enter the village. It is probably the liveliest place to watch the end of the sportive with a convivial atmosphere, cheering your mates home with a cold beer from our ‘ringside’ balconies, . We also get early start numbers for the first booked clients and entry to the Friday morning Time Trial up the 21 bends. You also have the option of riding the Vaujany sportive the weekend if coming our for longer. You will be met by our resort representative to gain access and keys. There is plenty of parking opposite and restaurants, a supermarket and a Trek bike service shop all within a 100mtrs walk. The registration village is only a 6 minute walk up the hill, also with a Mavic Service area for any last hitches.
£585.00 ( single supplement is £140.00)- SOLD OUT
