Service

La Marmotte Granfondo 2017

If there is one sportive on the bucket list for most cyclists it is La Marmotte Granfondo. Regarded by many to be the toughest cycle-sportive on the calendar, La Marmotte Granfondo is 174km long with 5000m of climbing. This epic challenge starts in Bourg d’Oisans before climbing over the Col du Glandon, Col du Telegraphe, Col du Galibier and finally the legendary 21 hairpins up to the finish in Alpe d’Huez.

Private Feed Station

There will be rolling road closures in place for this event so it is not possible have a support vehicle following you around the route. However, there will be a vehicle positioned at the top of the Col du Lautaret which will carry a range of spares, fresh water, energy bars, energy drinks and light snacks. You can also place a “goodie bag” in the vehicle, full of the energy products that work best for you.

Registration for the Event

The La Marmottte Granfondo 2016 is sure to be a fantastically well organised event and one that we highly recommend. Entries will open on the 9th November 2015 and will sell-out very quickly - in 2015 this iconic sportive was sold out within 24 hours. We have a number of guaranteed entries available which will be sold on a first come first serve basis.

Accommodation

Chalet Madeleine

Chalet Madeleine is a typical Savoyard style chalet, constructed over three floors, sleeping 10 guests in 5 spacious twin bedrooms. Each floor has a bathroom and toilet.

The Lounge

The lounge area is furnished to a high standard, with comfy leather sofas providing the perfect place to relax after a hard day in the saddle. For your entertainment it is equipped with Free Wifi Access, Flat Screen TV, Sky Sports, DVD Player, iPod Docking Station and Xbox Games Console.

The Bedrooms

The bedrooms have been designed with one thing in mind - a great night’s sleep for all our guests. Each room is finished to a good standard and has everything you would expect and more - amazingly comfortable beds, snuggly duvets, crisp-clean linen, soft fluffy towels and dressing gowns. For added security each room is also fitted with a safe.

In many chalets you will be ducking under eaves and struggling for space in your bedroom, that is not the case in Chalet Madeleine, all the rooms are very spacious with full height ceilings.
