Details

Fancy testing your legs?! With three hors-category and two first-category climbs, totalling over 5,500m of climbing, the Marmotte Pyrenees is arguably even harder than the better-known Marmotte Alps…

In its fourth year in 2019, the Marmotte Pyrenees presents an exciting opportunity to tackle some of the awe-inspiring Pyrenean climbs you’ve witnessed in the Vuelta and the Tour de France. And with over 5,500m of climbing along its 165km course, it is a true challenge!

The event starts with the Col du Tourmalet (2,110m) from Luz Saint Sauveur, followed by the beautiful Hourquette d’Ancizan (1,552m) and famous Col d’Aspin (1,476m) before revisiting the Col du Tourmalet, this time from Saint Marie de Campan. The route then finishes with the climb up the Hautacam (1,512m).
