La Marmotte Entries available from 9th November 2015 – Cycle Hire ?

8 Nov

La Marmotte 2016 goes online for registration on Monday 9th November at noon.

Since 1983 this epic 178 km tour with over 5,000 metres of climbing has been routed around our area of the French Alps.

Every cyclist knows about La Marmotte and its illustrious climbs, including the Col du Glandon, Telegraphe, Galibier and a finish Alpe d’Huez, which is why the Marmotte attracts 7,000 avid cyclists every year.

In 2015 the organisation was forced to change the course following the collapse at the Tunnel du Chambon but we are advised that for 2016 the event is back to its traditional route including the Galibier once more.

As ever, spots for this race are in demand, so be quick to grab your race number for the Marmotte, or join More Than 21 Bends on one of their trips, include an entry and also reduced priced Bike Hire.

Want to do your own thing for La Marmotte ?

Then we currently have 5% off all La Marmotte bike until the end of November 2016

Registrations start on Monday 9 November at noon CET and expect their server to crash soon afterwards !!
