THE FAMOUS ALPINE LEGEND !
The Alpine Escape will take place from 7 to 10 September 2024
Save the dates of this new escapade in the Alps until we tell you more!
In any case, you'll be in for a real treat as you climb some of the most beautiful little roads in Savoie and Haute-Savoie.
What better way to remind many of you of the much-loved landscapes of our beautiful Alps Trophy!
Registration: max 30 cars!
PROGRAMM : A 4-course menu!
Saturday 7 September: Lunch in Nantua, a renowned culinary stop-off point, from where the Echappée Alpine will set off for the pretty resort of La Clusaz in Haute-Savoie. In the afternoon, 155 km of winding roads will take you from pass to pass to the resort. For example, the Col de Berentin, then the Col de Cuvery will be your route to Annecy, followed by the Col de la Forclaz, the Col du Marais, the Col de la Croix Fry and finally La Clusaz! A lovely hors d'oeuvre to start the day, to whet your taste buds!
Sunday 8 September: A fine main course with the Plateau des Glières, Mont-Saxonnex, the Col de Joux Plane, Morzine, the Col de la Joux Verte, then the Col de la Ramaz, followed by the Col de la Colombière, Le Grand Bornand and La Clusaz!
Monday 9 September: In the mountains, there's always room for cheese! This 3rd day will take you over the Col des Aravis, the Col de l'Arpettaz, the Col de la Forclaz, the Fort du Mont, the Cold de Naves, Notre Dame du Pré, to reach Bourg St Maurice, then the magnificent Cormet de Roselend, followed by the Col du Pré, the Col des Saisies, the Col des Aravis and La Clusaz for our closing dinner.
Tuesday 10 September: A lovely dessert to finish the day, with more beautiful scenery on the way to our traditional farewell lunch!
As you know it, the Alps Trophy was a wonderful event, in an equally wonderful region.
We have tried to satisfy the participants as much as possible each year since 2017, by getting as close to the mountains as possible, thus shortening the links, for more sport and less loss of time and endless waiting, allowing the most distant to do less kilometres than to go down to the Côte d'Azur. The September dates also had an air of the end of the holidays and sublimated the landscapes. In short, as professionals, we feel we have done a lot to respect our clients. In spite of this, the Alps Trophy has never taken off. It's all very well to organise the most beautiful rally there is, but if the customers don't follow, it's better to stop complicating our lives! It's a pity for the faithful ones whom we thank here.
This is why we have decided to stop organising this event. It is now replaced every September by a 4-day hike called Echappée Alpine!
