GFNY back at L’Alpe d’Huez

June 16, 2022

At GFNY La Vaujany, riders tackle L’Alpe d’Huez this Sunday June 19, 2022

New York City, June 16, 2022/ENDURANCE SPORTSWIRE/ – After conquering the legendary Col du Tourmalet in the French Pyrenees a few days ago at GFNY Lourdes, GFNY riders get to race another iconic climb this Sunday: L’Alpe d’Huez.

GFNY La Vaujany is 145.1 km long with 3663m of climbing, including Col de la Morte, Col d’Ornon, L’Alpe d’Huez and Vaujany. The expected heat will make the bottom slopes of L’Alpe d’Huez and the climb to the finish in Vaujany particularly challenging.

Host town Vaujany is the ideal playground to make a rider’s French col fantasies come true. It’s no coincidence that the queen stage of the World Tour Race “Critérium du Dauphiné” finished in Vaujany last week. Vaujany offers all the amenities a rider and accompanying friends and family could wish for in a mountain village destination.

GFNY will already be back again in Vaujany at the end of August for the third annual GFNY Alpes Vaujany: same host town but a completely different course including the incredible Col de la Croix de Fer and Col du Glandon.
