If you want to experience a week of climbing in one of the most famous cycling locations in the world, with the opportunity to ride 3 sportives in one week – over 11,000 meters of climbing in just 387 kms – then the Trophee de l’Oisans is the perfect choice!
The week starts with the Vaujany sportive at 180km with 4,000 metres of climbing on the Sunday. This sportive will give you the chance to ride the Alpe du Grand Serre (1,360m), col d’Ornon (1,371m), Alpe d’Huez via Villard Reculas (1,750m) followed by the technical descent of the Col de Sarenne, used for the first time in the Tour in 2013, and then, in case you still feel you haven’t climbed enough, the event finishes with the leg-breaking climb to Vaujany (1,253m) for a total distance of 182km.
This is followed by the second sportive, the Prix des Rousses. At 40km it is a short, but intensive, effort starting at the bottom of the Alpe d’Huez and finishing at the top of Vaujnay ski station on the Wednesday.
On Friday, there is “just” the Grimpe, a time trial up Alpe d’Huez. And then on the final Sunday, you will take on the 170km Marmotte with over 5,000 metres of climbing.
Ten days on the top of the Alpe in the summer: this is a bike rider’s paradise! If this has whetted your appetite then look no further – book now!

Return transfers on Monday 9th July will leave Alpe d’Huez at 11am, and the transfer time is approximately three hours, so all return flights should depart Geneva no earlier than 4pm. We regret that we are unable to accommodate other arrival or departure times.
