Look Marmotte Granfondo Alps: 8th July 2018

 174 km, 5000 m climbing, 4 Major Alpine Passes. The last of the day: Alpe d'Huez!

Conquer the Cols of the Tour de France. You will climb the mountains that test the professional riders in the Tour de France. Can you ride col du Glandon, Télégraphe, Galibier, and Alpe d'Huez in one day?  This is the toughest alpine sportive in Europe.


Test your Limits in the French Alps

Without question this sportive will test you. During the ride you will climb 5000m and have ridden the big four mountains of the French Alps. This sportive will test your limits.

High Altitudes

As you climb high into the mountains you will face the challenge of high altitude riding as the air thins! This and hors category cols in a sportive setting makes Marmotte Alps that little bit special.

Be Part of a Peloton of Thousands

The atmosphere and camaraderie of riding in the Marmotte peloton has to be experienced. As you ride you will come to rely on the peloton as you scale your first col. By the time you descend the last one you will share a mutual respect for every rider that has taken part. You will experience the big event feel, similar to riders who compete in the Tour de France!

We use three back-up cars and back-up riders, so should you need fresh water, or a puncture fixed, we are here to ensure you stay on the road and finish the sportive.

Hope you are well and have recovered from the weekend.

I just wanted to say a huge thank you for a fantastic weekend and all the support. You were so kind and looked after me so well. I thoroughly appreciated it.

Without the support of Sport Active I could not have done this event. I will be highly recommending SportActive to all the cyclists I know.

Once again a million thanks and look forward to seeing you again soon.

About SportActive

We've made it our mission to make your experience of cycling in Mallorca one of the most incredible of your life

Every member of the cycle training team at SportActive is a passionate and accomplished cyclist in their own right, not to mention an expert in cycle training. Indeed, it was after taking part in numerous races across Europe, America and Australia that Flora and I eventually decided to set up SportActive in order to offer a new approach to training for cyclists. Having experienced the very best that cycling clubs had to offer, we wanted to make these experiences accessible to everybody, which eventually led us to found SportActive - a unique cycling break company, committed to help cyclists at all levels improve their skills and have fun doing so.
