The one and only iconic event of the Alp D Huez this is definitely one of the harder long distance events. Starting with a mountain lake swim in Verney, it is always going to be a chilly swim, and with the mass start a bit of open water chaos is all part of this event. Not only are there the famous 21 bends of the Alp D Huez there are two other climbs before you reach the Alp D Huez – The Grand Serre and the Col d Ornon arguably equally as hard. The run is mixed off and on road, at the top of the Alp D Huez. Lucie Wainwright now has Alp D Huez finishing credit, it’s a race for the tough ones, Congratulations lifetime experience achieved.
