Taking place on 9th July between Annemasse & Morzine, L’Étape du Tour offers riders the chance to tackle one of the mountain stages of the Tour de France and take on the famous Alpine Climbs.

Live the legend of the Tour de France, riding on the same routes and under the same conditions as the professionals: this is the promise that L’Étape du Tour has kept since 1993.

Every year, participants get to ride one of the mountain stages of the Tour de France: the same stage towns, the same routes, the same mythical climbs but also, and above all, the same race conditions as on the Tour. As the result of a significant amount of work carried out in partnership with the police, local organisations and local authorities, L’Étape du Tour de France is the only cyclosportive to offer routes which are entirely closed to traffic.

With the experience of 29 editions and a pack of 16,000 registered competitors, L’Étape du Tour is now Europe’s benchmark cyclosportive event.

The 31st edition of L’Étape du Tour will take place on 9th July 2023.

We’ll be emailing successful ballot entrants on 31st January with the results. You’ll then be given a deadline to enter by, make sure to claim your place before this deadline and enter yourself into this once in a lifetime competition! If you’ve not yet entered make sure to enter the ballot now to be in with a chance of being successful.
