Ride Marmotte Granfondo Pyrénées – Your New Favourite Sportive

Recently, Flora and Martin took on the challenging yet majestic sportive of Marmotte Granfondo Pyrénées.

Set in the Pyrénées mountain range, the sportive is a distance of 165 kms and involves 5,500m of climbing. Some of the gradients reach 13%!

You can see us at the start line in Luz Saint Sauveur. The first col we’ll ride is col du Tourmalet (2,115m).

After, col du Tourmalet (2,115m) you quickly discover the beautiful Hourquette d’Ancizan (1,564m) and famous col d’Aspin (1,489m) before revisiting the col du Tourmalet, this time from Saint Marie de Campan. The finale is the tough ride of Luz Ardiden (1,686m). Many of these cols you have probably seen in the Tour de France or Vuelta.

Flora gives good insights into the climb and the whole sportive here;

As with all our sportives, you will receive the SportActive magic you have come to know and love. This includes:

  • Registration into the sportive
  • As much support as the event organisers allow. This will be similar to Marmotte Alps
  • Backup cars carrying your personal items, spares, and supplies
  • Pre-event information meeting including sportive strategy and how to approach the tougher parts of the ride
  • Assistance with bike assembly
  • Airport transfers both ways
  • Hotel accommodation

Marmotte Pyrénées is arguably just as hard as Marmotte Alps. The climbing is just as intense and like its cousin, the scenery is just as spectacular.

A propos de SportActive

SportActive est né en Irlande, à l'initiative d'un petit groupe de cyclistes de haut niveau, emmené par Martin Birney et soutenu par le champion international Sean Kelly.

L'objectif est simple et novateur : proposer des séjours vélo utilisant les savoir-faire du cyclisme professionnel pour offrir aux amateurs de tous niveaux une approche unique, à la fois performante et plaisante, en matière de progression et d'entraînement.

Au fil des années, cette démarche pertinente et séduisante a convaincu des participants de plus en plus nombreux, mais SportActive a su rester une structure à taille humaine.
 
Ainsi, le fondateur Martin Birney et la directrice Flora Mittermair organisent eux-mêmes les séjours dans les moindres détails, avec l'aide des autres membres de l'équipe et dans un souci constant d'amélioration.
La "touche" SportActive, c'est aussi une attention toute particulière apportée aux besoins des différents participants : en bref, nous serons aux petits soins pour vous.
 
Que vous soyez débutant ou cycliste aguerri, votre séjour avec SportActive sera un moment inoubliable.
