Etape du Tour
If you are interested in cycling the most famous 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 Tour de France. The 2022 route includes 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 stage two of the Tour de France in every possible way.
This year the route is 170km, with 4,700m elevation and three major climbs.
We have a range of hotel options in Alpe d’Huez. All options are close to the finish line and offer secure bike storage.
End Of Week Sportive
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.
Our team will meet you in arrivals at Geneva or Lyon airport. We run three transfers on Thursday & Friday before the Etape and three return transfers on Monday.
