NEW in 2018: a 'women's start' on the Triathlon M

NEW in 2018 : women start on the TIME Triathlon Alpe d'huez M

The TIME Triathlon Alpe d'Huez is growing, little by little! Thanks to the 2017 satisfaction survey and all your comments, we were able to identify some points requiring changes to make the triathlete’s experience as positive and unforgettable as ever. Thanks again to all those who collaborated. One of these improvements concerns swimming on the distance M. In 2018, women will have their own start, 15 minutes before men! To do this, our partner EDF interrupts the production of the Grand'Maison Hydroelectric Power Plant enough time for the competition to take place. (PHOTO : Laurent Salino)

Lac du Verney is a magical site for the TIME Triathlon Alpe d'Huez swimming segment. The water quality and the grandiose environment of this artificial reservoir located in the heart of the Oisans Vallée allow each year more than 2000 triathletes to live a huge triathlon moment. For the 13th edition, women will have their own start on the Triathlon M. This measure will considerably reduce the rush during the mass start, and will perhaps encourage new triathlon addicts. Other improvements are planned (for both distances), at the level of the Bike Park, on the space granted by EDF in Vaujany. These measures should significantly fluidify the whole starting protocol!
