LOOK Marmotte Granfond 2018

Alpe d'Huez / Bourg d'Oisans

Sunday 8th July 2018 (Date now confirmed)



Web - Marmotte

Ascending the Col du Glandon, The Col du Telegraphe and The Mighty Galibier before a summit finish on Alpe d'Huez the ‘Marmotte’ Cyclosportive is the original and arguably the most difficult Alpine Cyclosportive with almost 5000m of climbing over 174 km (110 miles).
The standard is high at the front with many top amateurs and budding pros taking part. With over 7000 starters in 2015 and only 4500 finishers the Marmotte is arguable one of the hardest sportives in the world, the winner finishes in an incredible 5 hours whilst the last takes about 13hrs. There are sag wagons for those who drop out and in addition to the Sportcommunication feed stations there's a private feed station for Veloventoux guests close to the summit of the Col du Glandon.
