Details of the route :
Departure from La Giettaz –Col des Aravis – La Clusaz – St-Jean de Sixt – Grand Bornand - Col de La Colombière – Grand Bornand – St Jean de Sixt – La Clusaz – Col des Aravis - La Giettaz : 61km/1710m+

* Tricky sections:
- The first minor difficulty is the Col des Aravis from the village of La Giettaz, a 6km climb on a relatively even gradient that can still reach 8% in places.
- The Col de La Colombière will be the second tricky section, a climb that nevertheless remains steady over 12km with an average gradient of 6%.
It's only from Chinaillon onwards that the going gets tougher, especially with the final 1.5km at 8% and its final ramp.
- The return journey is via the Col des Aravis, which is relatively easy.
There are no steep sections, but the second part (approx. 6km), after passing La Clusaz, offers a slightly steeper but fairly regular climb at 6/7%.

The organisation reserves the right to modify the routes according to the weather conditions and other unforeseen events.
