The Haute Route Alps is a classic 7 stage race over the most iconic climbs in the region. The race starts in stylish Megeve and heads down to Nice over 7 mountainous stages. The average day is around 130km with 2500-3500m of climbing with 2-4 big climbs per day. In the middle is a time trial (typically up a classic climb) which combines as a rest day in the afternoon.
