If you think you're up to the challenge, then we would like to welcome you to L'Etape du Tour or "Stage of the Tour!" Set in the heart of the Pyrenees and featuring 5 very challenging climbs, this is without question one of the most daunting goals that any cyclist can set and it requires that you bring your "A" game to France. It's that simple. In short, this is not anything like a local Century-ride at home, this is one day inside the biggest and baddest bike race on the planet with all of its beauty and severity.

Along with all the world-class cycling on roads filled with Tour history, you'll enjoy the services of our professional staff and mechanics plus our 2 private aid stations on the day of the Etape as we try to help you as much as possible in your quest to make it to the finish! So come prepared for the most challenging ride of your life and return home a true "giant of the road!".
