2023 Etape du Tour
If you are interested in cycling the most famous Gran Fondo/ Sportive in the world, book your place on the Etape du Tour (also known as the L’Etape du tour) and ride the Queen stage of the 2023 Tour de France. The 2023 route will again include awesome climbs in one of the world’s best cycling regions.
The first Etape du Tour took place in 1993, allowing amateur cyclists the opportunity to race over the same ground as the pros during the Tour de France. The roads are closed during this sportive, and refreshment stops can be expected along the way, replicating a stage of the Tour de France in every possible way. Our team on the ground are local to the area and have years of experience to ensure that you get the most out of your Etape du Tour experience with us.
The route of the 2023 Etape du Tour will be announced at the same time as the 2023 Tour de France route in October 2022. Be the first to book and have your first pick of the best hotels with Sportive Breaks Every year one of the toughest mountain stages of the Tour de France is selected to be that year's Etape du Tour. In 2019 the stage was Albertville to Val Thorens and in 2022 the stage was Briancon to Alpe d'Huez. Please find details below and scroll down to see our full route recce and review narrated by Eurosport commentator Brian Smith. The route for the 2022 Etape du Tour replicates stage 12 of the 2022 Tour de France and also the famous stage from the 1986 Tour de France where Hinault and Lemond battled it out and finished hand in hand. This is quite possibly the toughest Etape du Tour ever. Its route is very similar to the route of another famous sportive, the Marmotte but in reverse.
Very challenging: multiple tough sectors and a full day epic ride.
Once the route of the 2023 Etape du Tour is announced, we will offer airport transfers from the nearest airports. In 2022 we offered regular airport transfers on Thursday and Friday on arrival and on Monday on departure from both Lyon and Geneva. Our airport transfers include transport for luggage and bikes.
