Every ride must come to an end, and there’s no better place for ‘The Trilogy’ to conclude as it climbs the infamous 21 hairpin bends to the summit of the legendary L’Alpe d’Huez. Highly regarded as one of the toughest Cyclosportive events on the calendar, and covering many iconic roads as featured in Le Tour de France, you’ll need to successfully ascend two of the hardest mountain passes in the Alps (the 1,924m Col du Glandon and the mighty 2,645m Col du Galibier) before even contemplating the final ascent of the day.
La Marmotte is a true test of character and stamina for even the fittest of riders and there’s plenty to learn on the 174km circular route, with 5000m of climbing. Cotty’s valuable ‘on the road’ analysis and tips on clothing, nutrition and energy conservation will go a long way in ensuring you reach the finish with just enough in reserve to salute the crowd and punch the air Armstrong style! Bonus Features include Part 3 of the ‘Sportive Survival Guide’, providing insightful information on getting the most from a big day in the saddle, and uncut ‘Bullet Cam’ footage, giving a real-time preview of all the climbs and descents in their entirety.
