Marmotte 2020 News

The Marmotte 2020 has been postponed.

Inevitable, really in the current circumstances but it has been postponed until Saturday 5th September 2020.

Here is the information directly from the organizers:

Directly from the Organisers:

“Initially scheduled on Sunday 5th of July, the 38th edition of the LEPAPE Marmotte Granfondo Alpes will take place on Saturday 5th of September 2020.
This hard decision comes from one conviction: give everyone time so that the LEPAPE Marmotte Granfondo Alpes takes place in the best conditions for all participants by ensuring:
– That you can have the freedom to move and come to France : cyclists coming from all around the world represents almost 80% of all participants
– That you can have enough time to train for this big challenge.

The Marmotte program will remain the same:
– Thursday 3rd of September : Grimpée de l’Alpe d’Huez
– Friday 4th and Saturday 5th of September : LEPAPE Rando des Marmottes
– Saturday 5th of September : LEPAPE Marmotte Granfondo Alpes

What changes for the Oisans Trophy?
The Marmotte Alpes is part of the Oisans Trophy integrating the Vaujany scheduled on Sunday, 28th of June. Today, no decision has yet been made on a possible date for postponing this event.

Impact on the Marmotte Series:
In order to ensure the coherence of the Marmotte series, we regret to announce you that the Marmotte Pyrénées, initially scheduled on August 30th, is postponed to 2021. Indeed, the organization of these two events one week apart from each other is very complicated weather from an organizational or a competition point of view.

For those already registered, you do not have to do anything; your registration is automatically postponed.
In case you can’t make it the 5th of September, please notify us so we can help you report your registration for the Marmotte 2021.

We thank you for your comprehension, take care!
The Cycling Classics Team.”
