HotChillee's Alpine Challenge 2012 takes place from 5th to 9th September and we have a small amount of places now available due to cancellations.
The Alpine Challenge is a 4 stage Alpine event designed using the same formula as the famous London-Paris. Based out of the beautiful lakeside town of Annecy in the Savoie, the scenary and riding is breaktaking every day.
Riders can enjoy the benefits of rolling road closures, motorbike outriders and lead vehicles, whilst riding in one of 4 seeded groups commensurate with ability and supported by a professional crew including massurs, mechanics and Mavic neutral services.
This event provides the opportunity to ride a series of mountain stages (approximately 110-120km per day), and is created to offer a Tour de France like experience. Following a stunning warm up ride around Lake Annecy on arrival, the events starts with a timed mountain Stage which is used to seed riders into the appropriate groups. Thereafter comes 3 mountain stages crossing some of the infamous mountain stages such as the Cols des Aravis.
Each day there is a flagged timed climb, of which the aggregate time determines the Leaders Jersey winners (male and female) for the next stage.
