The Haute Route Ventoux is your chance to experience the life of a pro cyclist for a weekend. The Haute Route compact races have all the same pro touches as the 7 day events and our support team are the same expert mechanics and experienced pro races / coaches. Support highlights include post ride massage, mechanics cleaning your bikes every day and team briefings over dinner each evening. We have been proud partners of the Haute Route for many years and we know exactly what you need to achieve your goals.

What to Pack

Early October in Provence is normally a perfect time for weather. The route takes in Ventoux each stage so ensure your gearing is set up for long and steep climbs.

What do I need to pack?

Three rides over what should be pleasant conditions, you always need to pack the essentials (gilet, arm warmers, waterproof jacket etc) but should be an easy race to layer for. We will give you day bags for anything you want dropped off at our feed station and our mechanics are well stocked with everything you need.

What can I expect on the rides?

The stages start early (typically at 7am with breakfast from 5am) with a neutralised section before the race breaks up on the first climb. We have a private feed stop in each section and there is also Mavic support and an army of volunteers to marshall the roads. The race village has a pasta party and post ride massage.
