Les Deux Alpes (1665m)

Only a few kilometres further than Alpe d’Huez from Bourg d'Oisans, the climb to Deux Alpes was made famous in 1998 when Jan Ullrich lost over eight minutes to Marco Pantani on the Tour de France stage.

From Bourg d’Oisans follow the RN91 on the valley floor towards Briançon. After 5km turn left into Gorges d’Infernet and proceed through the tunnel. Once you have cycled past the ‘Rampe des Commeres’, take the road to the village of Les Deux Alpes which does not present any major difficulties.

The climb from the Chambon barrage is 9km long with an 8% incline on a wide and well maintained road.
