Exceptional courses for experienced cyclists
With each new event, L’Alsacienne confirms its original aim of sharing a passion for cycling in the mountains, and offering a fun time for all, both entrants and volunteers.
For the 5th L’Alsacienne, the difficulty of L’Indomptable and L’Intrépide has been noticeably increased. These courses are only for experienced cyclists who are very fit. The beauty of the new areas crossed makes up for the efforts required by these exceptional courses. There is a short neutralised section with a speed check while crossing Alsatian villages and vineyards.
L’Audacieuse passes through the most beautiful scenery in the Vosges Mountains. Although it is shorter than the previous two courses, this magnificent route is still a challenge for any cyclists who have had appropriate training.
The safety procedures are completed by time limits and application of the rules in force.

Great new changes
L’Indomptable and L’Intrépide offer new difficulties for experienced cyclists. Appropriate training is essential to take part in these two demanding courses which include a cobblestone section and steep climbs in a picturesque area.
A reasonable requirement
Time limits exclude cyclists or require them to change course.
Only highly trained cyclists will be able to overcome the difficulties of this mountain event
To ensure that the speed limit is respected from the entry to Soultzmatt to the end of Westhalten, a minimum time check will be carried out in this neutralised section. Cyclists who do not respect the minimum time will receive a 15-minute penalty.
Cyclists who are overtaken by the broom wagon are declared “Did Not Finish”. Only cyclists who have mechanical difficulties that cannot be repaired with the minimum recommended tool kit (equipment to repair a flat tyre at least) can be rescued by the broom wagon.
New grounds for disqualification
Cyclists will be disqualified if they :
- are accompanied by a cyclist who has not registered for the event for all or part of the course.
- are rude to a volunteer or any person involved in the smooth running of the event
