It looks like a group of my club will be travelling over for this next year.

I did the short in '11 & several of us have done the long in the past, but not for a few years. I'm undecided as to whether to do the short or long, it will depend on my Spring/early Summer. My question to those that have done it recently is, do the events sell out?

Cheers.

It didn't sell out this year and I think they were still taking entries on the day.

I decided to do the short again. Is it still a draft-fest to the bottom of the hill?

Anyone else going along? I'm not taking it too seriously as I hope to do the Marmotte route a couple of days before with friends.....getting my excuses in early.

Travel safe people.

Good luck & happy racing DH

Short is indeed still a total draft fest for the first 25km, but then if I recall correctly there is a little hill which breaks up the pack.

Three racers here for the Long Course we raced here 4 years ago and have decided to come back for another go. Staying in Alpe Dhuez for the week it's a beautiful place to be.

I rode up the Alpe this morning in the rain which was as hard as I remember didn't wipe the smile off my face tho

Good luck to all whichever event and stay safe
