Alpe d’Huez

One of the most iconic climbs of the Tour de France and of cycling in general. The 21 hairpin bends up to the ‘Ile au Soleil’ are on every cyclist’s bucket list. A popular ski resort in the winter, the resort turns into a cycling mecca in the summer. Apart from the Etape and the Tour, other events in June/ July include: the Haute Route Alpe d’Huez, the Marmotte Gran Fondo Alps, the Megavalanche and the Alpe d’Huez Triathlon.
Alpe d’Huez last featured in the Tour de France in 2022.  Tom Pidcock from Ineos Grenadiers became the youngest ever winner on the mythical Alpe d’Huez with a sensational solo win on Stage 12.
For training, Alpe du Zwift on Zwift is a fairly accurate representation of the climb so ideal to get stuck into over the winter!
