CHALLENGE 100 KM

4 stages – 100km – 7100m d+

MONDAY 22 JULY 2024 Stage 1 The Pied Moutet tour

29km / 1800m 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 / 1300m 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 From Chambon to Myrtilles

22km / 1400m d+ 

A stage split in 2: the first 11 kilometres to the large lake at Le Chambon are mainly rolling or downhill. This is the perfect way to warm up before swallowing up all the positive gradient in the second part and plunging towards Les 2 Alpes via the delightful Myrtilles descent with its superb switchbacks.

 

FRIDAY 26 JULY 2024Stage 4From Sappey to Mont de Lans

 30kms / 2000m d+

To round off this Défi de la Muzelle in style, this 4th stage offers a particularly varied route: the first 12 kilometres are very technical with the descent from Venosc and the Sappey balconies, followed by a series of fast sections and steep climbs. There’s plenty of variety, with wild corners, small hamlets and great panoramic views, before we celebrate the final finish!

 

Different courses profiles

More or less difficult tracks for everyone’s skills!

CHALLENGE 51 KM

4 stages – 52km – 3250m d+

MONDAY 22 JULY 2024Stage 1The Ridge of Pied Moutet

15km / 650m 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

12km / 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 3La Fée

15km / 1000m d+ 

A real challenge on this stage! After a steep descent to Cuculet, you’ll have to climb and climb and climb to the Crêtes. And to finish on a high: the spectacular descent of Les Myrtilles and its superb switchbacks!

 

FRIDAY 26 JULY 2024Stage 4The assault of Venosc

11kms / 800m 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?
