Presentation of 2018 Étape Du Tour
The 2018 edition on July 8th 2018, cyclosportive riders will be expected by thousands for the 26 th edition of L’Étape du Tour, on the route of the 10th stage of the Tour de France, marked out between Annecy and Le Grand Bornand.
For more than twenty years, sportive riders have been inspired by the key event of the summer: L’Étape du Tour, THE benchmark race that amateur cyclists want to experience, the one where they will be tested to their limits. You will ride the same course as the professional peloton, who will also climb the same slopes a few days later.
The challenge at hand, with two of the Tour de France’s most prestigious ascents, is ideal for climbing specialists. But with a distance of 159 kilometres, the overall profile will also be accessible to well prepared amateurs who want to experience the ultimate challenge.
The record number of 14,500 entrants registered last year is likely to be surpassed
