MARMOTTE 2015 – NEW ROUTE


We announced a few weeks ago that the road RD 1091 between Grenoble and Briançon was closed due to cracks in the Tunnel du Chambon and subsequent reconstruction works.
Despite the important works that have been started, this major axis in Oisans and Hautes-Alpes will remain closed until the end of July.
In the mountains more than anywhere else, nature controls human activities, and this is true for residents and cyclists alike.
With the support of partner local authorities in Oisans and Maurienne and the relevant state services, we changed the route of the Marmotte sportive.
Together we managed to elaborate a new route with characteristics as close as possible to those of the original route:
170km instead of 174km, and 5100m/d+ instead of 5000m/d+.

We will keep the Glandon, but replace the Telegraphe, Galibier and Lautaret with prestigious passes in Maurienne that will feature in the Tour de France 2015:
The picturesque Lacets de Montvernier, Col du Mollard (1630m), Col de la Croix de Fer (2058m).
The Maurienne area will have the place of honnor among the 7500 participants from 50 countries that come every year to La Marmotte, and we will do everything we can to turn this unforeseen event into an outstanding experience.

We would like to thank the towns, communities and services involved for their support and their help in creating this new route.

You will find below the details of the route in order to better prepare for this challenge.
We hope you will appreciate this new Marmotte with as much enthusiasm and pleasure as ever, but also with reason.

Bonne Marmotte 2015.
