The Alpine Challenge is a 4 stage Alpine endurance event designed using the same formula as the famous LONDON-PARIS. Based out of the beautiful lakeside town of Annecy in the Savoie, the scenery and riding is breathtaking!
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 and a full mechanic team.
This event provides the opportunity to ride a series of mountain stages (approximately 110km per day) and nearly 7,000m of climbing, and offers a Tour de France multi mountain stage experience.
Following a stunning warm up ride on arrival, the event 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 such as Col de Colombière, Col de Leschaux, Col des Saisies and Col de la Forclaz.
Each day there is a flagged timed climb, of which the aggregate time determines the Leaders Jersey winners (male and female) for the next stage. There are also age category awards and teams can compete for the Best Team award.
