The 19th Serre-Che is already in preparation and its enduring appeal is down to our loyal partners and volunteers whom we must thank for succeeding in creating this memorable summertime event in our magnificent Serre Chevalier Valley.

This latest Serre-Che is scheduled for Saturday 9 and Sunday 10 July 2016 and features new routes and the full grandeur of the Alps. For this 19th Serre-Che the organisers bring you stunning new routes that cross legendary mountain passes such as those at Izoard, Mont-Cenis, Télégraphe and Galibier via its northern flank…

As in previous years, participants will have the choice of three different routes along mountain roads closed to traffic. These three routes give something for everyone, and combine technical ability with mountain terrain and beautiful landscapes.

Our patron, Luc Alphand, and I look forward to seeing you on Saturday 9 and Sunday 10 July 2016 to share in the fun of the race and to savour the pleasure of proving your stamina and testing yourself to your limits.

Sportingly yours
Christian BOURBON
President of the Organising Committee
