Registrations are now open for the seventh edition of the l'Alpe d'Huez triathlon. Victor del Corral will be the favorite of this event in the triathlon summits, which will be held from July 22 to 26.
It is not just a special triathlon, associated with a myth of the Tour de France. The l'Alpe d'Huez triathlon, after six editions, is already a legend in itself.
The latest edition, marked by the epic victory of Victor del Corral, will undoubtedly have contributed to strengthening the iconic character of the event. “I will return this year to train again in the Alps facing the Embrunman. But I would also like to defend my title! So I will prepare myself well for this objective. I will stay in l'Alpe d'Huez for a couple of weeks to acclimatize to the altitude, ”Victor confides.
Last year, the European Triathlon cross champion was accompanied by 80 other Spaniards who also had the privilege of challenging the famous 21 corners of the final climb, whether in the duathlon, in the Long or in the Short triathlon.
Many of them came to be part of the legend and also share their passion with their companions during their stay at the top of the triathlon, as the offer of various activities punctuates the week of competition. The Spanish delegation will again receive particular attention from the organization with a free breakfast in the form of a briefing.
