race followup TIME Triathlon Alpe d'Huez 2019
The number of participants is growing and so is the audience of passionate supporters! Located in the heart of the Alps and the Oisans Valley, the TIME Triathlon Alpe d'Huez routes are not easily accessible. Here are some tips to make the most of the show, with only one motto: respect for the participants and their safety.
The LIVE of Triathlon L, always more complete!

As every year, a LIVE video will be set up for the Triathlon L, from the start at 9.30 am, to follow the evolution of the race leaders. This online follow-up will also be displayed on the giant screen placed in the centre of the Village Expo, in order to live together the emotion of the race. Once the first ones arrive, the fixed camera on the finish line will offer images of all the finishers in the final straight: if you are far from Alpe d'Huez you can enjoy the arrival of your family or friends online. Please note: this program will be presented in French with some interventions in English.

LIVE Video Triathlon L: It's here!

The LIVE link will also be available on alpetriathlon.com and Facebook.

Timing: the best real-time reference

With new intermediate points added on the cycling course of this 14th edition, the "LIVE Chrono" will allow the public to access the triathletes' lap times throughout the event. Go to our alpetriathlon.com page to access the "LIVE Chrono" or click on the following link: CHRONO. It is undoubtedly the most reliable and effective way to monitor the progress of an athlete in a race, mainly on the cycling part. Note: Once the race is over, don't forget to upload your finisher diploma at the same link.

Public access to the race:

Swimming: Lac du Verney offers a fantastic setting for the start of the two triathlons. A parking has been set up to allow the public to park in order to access the site and enjoy the show, but its capacity is limited (do not arrive at the last minute). If you are carrying an athlete, please use the drop-off area provided. To get back to the station once the swimming is finished, please take the alternative route, passing through Villars Reculas. IMPORTANT: if you decide to go down to Lac du Verney for the start of the Triathlon M, be aware that it will be difficult for you to get back up to Alpe d'Huez in time to watch the race, due to traffic and priority of triathletes.

Cycling: Although the roads are open to traffic, followers should not accompany triathletes on the cycling courses, especially on Triathlon L. Participants who are clearly followed by car may be disqualified by our referees. For the safety of all and the smooth running of the event, please leave the road to the triathletes. In the 21 bends, however, the public can still access some bends. It is therefore important to park properly and not to move from turn to turn.

Running: The 6.7km loop offers a very beautiful walk, for all those who want to enjoy the magnificent landscapes of the Sarenne road in particular. On Triathlon L, the three laps give spectators plenty of time to walk around the circuit and watch the finish. IMPORTANT: the arrival area is reserved for participants and accredited persons.
