The HotChillee Alpine Challenge 2015

The Alpine Challenge is a 4 stage Alpine endurance road event. Based out of the beautiful lakeside town of Annecy, France the scenery and riding is breathtaking ... and testing with about 8,000m of climbing.

Riders enjoy the benefits of rolling road closures, motorbike outriders and lead vehicles, whilst riding in seeded groups commensurate with ability and supported by a professional crew including masseurs, paramedics and a full mechanic team.

This event provides the opportunity to ride a series of mountain stages (approximately 110km per day) and about 8,000m of climbing, and offers a Tour de France multi mountain stage experience. The events starts with a timed mountain Prologue which is used to seed riders into the appropriate groups. Thereafter 3 mountain stages follow, scaling some of the famous Tour de France mountain climbs.

Each day there is a flagged timed climb, the aggregate time determines the Leaders Jersey winners (male and female). Teams of 4 also compete for the Best Team award.

Specialist cycling events company, HotChillee have a world class reputation for professionalism and camaraderie. The HotChillee peloton combines amateur, professional and celebrity riders.

The experience of riding The Alpine Challenge brought back all the feelings of that crazy La Plagne mountain top stage in 1987 when I won the Tour de France. The most real it can get for an amateur.

Other HotChillee Events...

HotChillee has been specialising in pro style events since 2003. Starting with the famous London-Paris that developed into the Global Event Series with the addition of the Alpine Challenge and Cape Rouleur we now take pleasure in presenting Dunkerque-Roubaix with Geraint Thomas.

The Cape Rouleur The Dunkerque Roubaix The London-Paris

We love great, authentic locations and Roubaix is probably the next best finish venue after the Champs Elysee, Arc de Triomphe in the centre of Paris. A single day event with massive historical significance.

Designed using the same formula as The London-Paris; rolling road closures, professional support and unforgettable riding experiences the event has become another welcome addition to the summer cycling calendar.
