Service

Spend a couple of days acclimatising and finding your climbing legs before tackling this great 144km Sportive that includes up to 3800 meters of climbing. There will be plenty of coaching advice available for those that would like it. Many of the climbs feature in the 2016 Tour de France.

This is an event that’s very popular in France but not so well known in the UK. Each year around 2000 people enter making it a great day of alpine riding with a relaxed atmosphere.

There are various event lengths with the main route being 144km in distance with 3800 meters of climbing. The long course starts and ends in the ski resort of Megeve and ascends the Col de la Columbiere (1613m), Col des Aravis (1486m) along with two ascents of the Col des Saisies from both sides (1655m).

We collect you from Geneva airport at the arranged time and return to the Colconquerors accommodation where you’ll spend 4 nights have 2 days guided riding on routes around the Maurienne valley (Galibier, Telegraphe, Chaussy, Mollard, Madeliene, Glandon to name a few dependent upon conditions). Then on event day morning you will have an early morning transfer to the start of the event in Megeve ready for the grand depart.

Over the course of the weekend you will cover over 300km of riding and between 6000 & 7000 meters of vertical.
