La Marmotte - officially known as LEPAPE Marmotte Granfondo Alpes - is one of Europe's most popular sportives.
The route remains unchanged for 2020, with 7500 entrants taking on three epic alpine climbs: the Glandon, Telegraphe and Galibier, before finishing with the 21 hairpins of the Alpe d'Huez.
It all adds up to around 5,000m of climbing over a 174km course, and with the French Alps providing a beautiful backdrop it's a must for any serious sportive cyclist.
La Marmotte is part of the Cycling Classics France series, which includes the Marmotte Pyrenees sportive as well as the classic Marmotte Alps and a host of less well known but often equally challenging courses.
As announced last week on Sportive.com, bundle entries for one or more events in the Cycling Classics Series opened last Monday, but today marks the opening of solo entries for cyclists looking to ride just the Marmotte Alps.
Entries for 2020 are priced €110, same as 2019. Places always sell out fast, so early registration is definitely advised.
