The Goalspecific Alpe D’Huez Triathlon Training week is offered to triathletes who are looking for an intense training week with high level technical coaching in an amazing mountainous environment, which will involve riding some of the great iconic alpine cols, including the 21 bends of Alpe D’Huez. Due to the nature of the specific coaching, we have only 12 places available which will be distributed on a first come first served basis.
All coaching is provided by Fran and Ade Bungay (both BTF level 3 triathlon coaches and coach tutors).
You will receive an athlete’s questionnaire once you have booked your place. Please complete it in as much detail as possible so we can get a picture of your fitness, goals, and individual objectives of what you would like to achieve from the week.
