European Cycle Events are delighted to announce that we have been invited by the
Amaury Sport Organisation (A.S.O.) to become an official tour operator for the prestigious 2019 L’Étape du Tour.
Live the legend of the Tour de France by conquering one of the legendary mountain stages. The Izoard; Tourmalet, Alpe d’Huez; Ventoux to name just a few of the mythical climbs L‘Etape has been over.
This year the ride starts in Albertville in the Auvergne-Rhône-Alpes region in south-eastern France. The town is best known for hosting the 1992 winter olympics. You will finish at the mountaintop ski resort of Val Thorens, 2,300m.
You will ride the same route and under the same conditions as the pro peloton when they come through a week later.
You’ll experience the same excitement of Le Tour’s yellow bikes and mass of yellow decorations along the route. You’ll be cheered on by spectators and by Tour followers from their camper vans on the mountain side. This is the closest you can get to feeling how a pro feels when racing a Tour stage.
One thing for sure is that it will be a fantastic experience. We know, we’ve ridden in 3 Étapes and will make sure our experience matches your expectation.
If you would like an ENTRY ONLY , no problem this is the cost of the normal deposit for a package trip. Just email to say you want an entry only.
You will arrive on the Friday the 19th of July 2019 using Saturday to warm up the legs, sign on, visit the expo, soak up the atmosphere and relax! L’étape du tour sets off from Albertville on Sunday the 21st of July.
