Its time to look forward to the summer and one of Le Bourg d’Oisans/Alpe d’Huez most popular events, the 12th edition of the EDF Alpe d’Huez Triathlon. This year the event takes place from the 24th – 28th of July and will feature the usual long and short courses, as well as a run and ride Duathon and child events.

The Triathlon Format

The basic format of the adult events are a swim in the beautiful Lac du Verney reservoir above Allemond. Followed by a cycling stage, which ends by climbing the 21 hairpin bends of Alpe d’Huez. Finishing with a run at altitude around the ski field of Alpe d’Huez. It is widely considered one of the toughest Triathlons due to the cycling stage up the Alpe d’Huez and the altitude for the running stage.
