The Tourmalet is the most used mountain pass in the Tour de France
The closest airport is Lourdes Tarbes. This is 45 minutes away from Luz Saint Sauveur and 30 mins to Argeles Gazost. Transfers are available.
Collection of race entries is in Luz Saint Sauveur the day before the sportive or in the morning of the race. Collection can be in person or by someone else provided they have your medical certificate, ID and print out of your registration.
Start is in Luz Saint Sauveur at 7.30am. The finish is at the top of the Hautecam.
The route makes it difficult to have the perfect base. Argeles Gazost is the location of the start and registration but is 19km from the finish village. Luz Saint Sauveur is our preference as it is closer to the finish and the location for the pasta party. We put on a free shuttle to the start to save your legs the extra 19km - we think your legs will appreciate it!
