The Triathlon L of Alpe d’Huez is already full! But if you are not one of the 1300 lucky triathletes registered, you still have a chance to take on the legend with the Spirit Triathlon Series 2020. This season, each of the other three stages of the circuit has 20 bibs available for the Alpe d’Huez Triathlon L, reserved exclusively for their registered triathletes. So why not to add to your schedule the Balearics, Bavaria or the Austrian Alps in addition to the 21 bends? One thing is for sure: if you like the Alpe d’Huez Triathlon, these races will delight you. Let us explain you why.
(If you are registered for one of these three races and would like to get your race number for the Alpe d’Huez Triathlon, please contact the Spirit Triathlon Series team by email at [email protected])
The Spirit Triathlon Series is back this season with the same philosophy: to bring together all triathletes who love authenticity and challenging courses in four races with atypical profiles. If you want to go back to the roots of the discipline, if you believe that there is no personal challenge without a community of enthusiasts to share it and if you are willing to explore your limits: take your agendas!
Stage 1: April 19 – Triathlon Portocolom / Spain
Let’s meet in Portocolom on the island of Mallorca for the first event of the Spirit Triathlon Series 2020. In a 1-100-10 (or 0.5-55-5) format, this emblematic triathlon gives a special emphasis to cycling with two impressive climbs to the sanctuary of Sant Salvador (at an altitude of over 500 metres), after swimming in the turquoise waters of the Portocolom Bay and its mythical lighthouse as a reference point. The final run along the port and its Mediterranean atmosphere conclude the event with a certitude as soon as the finish line is crossed: there is no best scenery to start the season!

Stage 2: June 27-28 – EBERL Chiemsee Triathlon / Germany
Complete change of background for the second stage of the Spirit Triathlon Series. Welcome to Chieming, on the shores of the largest lake in Bavaria, Lake Chiemsee. The 2km swimming course will take participants to Herreninsel Island in crystal clear water, at the foot of the Alps. On hilly terrain through the idyllic landscapes of the Chiamgau region, the 80 km bike ride is a delight for the best cyclists, before returning to the banks of Lake Chiemsee for the final 20 km of running. “Triathlon for all”: this is the motto of the EBERL Chiemsee Triathlon, which also offers an Olympic format, a sprint, a mixed relay and a children’s triathlon.

Stage 3: July 27-31 – Alpe d’Huez Triathlon
Stage 4 : August 30 – Transvorarlberg Triathlon / Autriche
For those who like high peaks and positive gradients! In the heart of the Austrian Alps is the Vorarlberg region, a magnificent valley crossed by an atypical triathlon: the Transvorarlberg Triathlon. Lake Constance, from Bregenz, hosts the 1.2km long swim (joining the largest floating stage in the world). But it is the 93 breathtaking kilometres of the cycling route that constitute the main course of the race, with 2000 metres of posistive ascent in an impressive landscape. The T2 is located in the ski resort of Lech (1444 meters high), before attacking 12 km of running (2 laps) whose breathtaking panoramas compensate for the difficulty.
