Entries are now open for the Marmotte Alps 2022.

The Marmotte sportive will take place on Sunday 3 July 2022.

The route is one of the world's toughest one-day cycling challenges, with famous Tour de France climbs including the Col du Glandon, the Col du Télégraphe, the Col du Galibier and the legendary Alpe d'Huez.

It stacks up to some 5000m of climbing over 175km - a more than decent day in the saddle!

But if that's not enough, 2022 will see the return of the Marmotte Ultrafondo. Packing in a second ascent of Alpe d'Huez, this little detour works out at 6300m of climbing over 226km.

The registration fee for both the Marmotte and Marmotte Ultrafondo is €110.

For those cyclists who'd rather savour the route over two days, the Marmotte Rando option allows you to do just that. Entries are priced €70.
