Introduction

Sierra Sports & Tours is pleased to offer a 6 night package for triathletes and supporters attending the 2017 ITU World Championships in Rotterdam, Holland.

2020 French Alpes Classic Climbs

''Sierra Sports your 2017 ITU World Triathlon Championship domestique!! ''
2020 FRENCH ALPES CYCLING TOUR

Here is a classic cycling tour to challenge all recreational cyclists looking for a testing crossing of the French Alpes. This Grenoble to Nice cycling tour will take you from the capital of the French Alpes to the glamour and glitz of the Cote d’Azur beaches. The route includes some of the biggest household name climbs with Alpe d´Huez, Col de la Croix de Fer, Col de la Madeleine, Col d’Iseran, Col du Galibier, Col d’Izoard and Col de la Bonnete all dotted along the route path. There is no doubting that the giants of the French Alpes will have you gasping for oxygen; Col d’Iseran (2764m altitude), Col de la Bonette (2715m altitude) and Col du Galibier (2645m altitude).

But what makes this point to point adventure so authentic are the lesser known climbs such as Col de Sollude, Col de la Chaussy, Mont Cenis, Col de Turini and Col d’Eze which will add the icing on the cake with breathtaking scenery and quiet backroads.

During 2020 ‘Grenoble to Nice’ falls under our Special Releases as it strays from our typical tour structure of at least 2 nights in each location. This is a challenge ride, an adventurous route where one rides daily from hotel to hotel. The support vans are always close by, but the aim is to ride from the mountains to the sea!

Dates: 28-06-2020 to 08-07-2020
