CHALLENGE 100 KM

4 stages – 100km – 7500m d+

MONDAY 22 JULY 2024 Stage 1 The Pied Moutet tour

29km / 2000m d+

A first day to discover the Oisans! The route passes through the main hamlets of Les 2 Alpes (Mont-de-Lans, Bons, Venosc) but above all offers breathtaking views of the Oisans and its villages. This hilly route is ideal for a good warm-up. This hilly course is ideal for a good start. However, you will have to keep your feet under you for the final part of the stage: the ascent of the Alpe de Venosc and its 600m of positive difference in altitude in just over 2 km!

TUESDAY 23 JULY 2024 Stage 2 From Diable to La Fée ​

20km / 1400m d+

Direction the first beautiful altitudes for this second day! Right from the start, we attack with the Machiavellian climb to the Diable (2400m) before plunging into superb scenery with a more magical spirit. This stage full of contrasts should delight many!

 

 

THURSDAY 25 JULY 2024 Stage 3 Vénéon River

25km / 1700m d+ 

Freshness… ephemeral on this 3rd stage! Because after having refreshed yourself by following the magnificent classified river Vénéon, you will have to gain height. On the balconies, the climb is difficult and above all spectacular! The route also explores other points of interest such as the delightful hamlet of Lanchâtra or the village of Saint-Christophe-en-Oisans.

 

FRIDAY 26 JULY 2024Stage 4The Ecrins lakes

 29kms / 2500m d+

This is THE final bouquet, the explosion of beauty for this last day! The Ecrins National Park is a marvel, and rightly so, very protected. This is why many measures apply on this day and the number of participants is limited. For the privileged, 2 extraordinary lakes are on the programme: the very famous Lauvitel and the no less beautiful Lac de la Muzelle.

 

Different courses profiles

More or less difficult tracks for everyone’s skills!

CHALLENGE 51 KM

4 stages – 50km – 3600m d+

MONDAY 22 JULY 2024Stage 1The Ridge of Pied Moutet

15km / 700m d+

A beautiful 1st day! 6 hilly kilometres to get into shape before discovering the beauty of the Crête du Fioc on this side of Pied Moutet. A stage with rolling parts, a beautiful climb, a spectacular descent: in short, the challenge of the Muzelle is launched!

 

TUESDAY 23 JULY 2024Stage 2The Diable

11km / 800m d+

The climb of the Diable is a “Must”, an ascent not to be missed in Les 2 Alpes. Because its profile is varied and interesting, but also because the views over the Vénéon Valley are grandiose!

 

 

THURSDAY 25 JULY 2024Stage 3Vénéon River

11km / 1000m d+ 

Freshness… ephemeral on this 3rd stage! Because after having refreshed yourself by following the magnificent classified river Vénéon, you will have to gain height. On the balconies, the climb is difficult and above all spectacular!

 

FRIDAY 26 JULY 2024Stage 4The assault of Venosc

14kms / 1000m d+

The ascent of Venosc, a myth that absolutely had to be included in the race programme! Before climbing these 3 terrible kilometres, you’ll have a chance to get a feel for the terrain on the way down before branching off onto an ultra-technical path to reach the rare fairly flat section of the day. So, are you ready for the assault?
