We took on all the famous climbs in the area but the highlight of this years’ trip was tackling the legendary La Marmotte.
La Marmotte is one of the oldest sportives in cycling and is the ultimate cycling test. The route takes in four of the most famous climbs from the Tour de France: the Glandon, Telegraph, Galibier and then finishing atop the Alpe d’Huez. Four major Cols in one day! 187 kilometres and 5180 metres elevation. One to sort the men from the boys!
