OFFICIAL TRAVEL PARTNER OF THE MARMOTTE ORGANIZATION
This is the cyclo-sportive which started it all. The oldest of these races is still also regarded as the most challenging. 5000m (16,400') of elevation gain over a 174km course (109 miles).
We will be offering 3 guided trips to the event, a self-guided/self-drive trip and we can also book entries only to the race.
Guided Trip #1: June 26th to July 4th - The Trophe de l'oisans. This trip offers a week of fun and challenging events in the Alps. The Marmotte is the main event, but there are 3 other races / timed events. Combined times of participants are tallied and the participant with the lowest combined time wins the Trophee. While some may enter with the prospects of placing well in the rankings, simply taking part and competing in the Trophee de l'oisans is a wonderful experience! Private feedzone with special needs bag on the Marmotte.
Guided Trip #2: June 30th to July 6th - Marmotte and Mont Ventoux. This trip offers a couple of days in the Alps to get you acclimated, followed by the Marmotte, the Grimpee de l'Alpe the next day and a couple of days dedicated to the Beautiful Provence region and Mont ventoux.
