Étape du Tour 2019: Albertville to Val Thorens
Cyclomundo is an Official Tour Operator for the Etape du Tour It's time to cross "Participate in the world's greatest gran fondo" off your to-do list! Join us - and thousands of other passionate cyclists - for the 2019 Etape du Tour, and ride Stage 20 (Albertville to Val Thorens) before the pros hit the road. Our professional mechanics will be there to keep you in top shape, so you can keep your eye on the prize: completing this year's sensational route. And as we're based in the French Alps, you'll be riding in our playground! You'll benefit from our local knowledge and guidance as you prepare for the challenge of a lifetime.

Over the 135 km (85 miles), you'll be pushed to the limit on some of the most breathtaking (in both senses!) passes in the French Alps, starting with the breathtaking Cormet de Roselend (1,968 m) which you will do "the classic way" via Col du Méraillet (1,604 m). The long descent will allow you to recover before tackling the "Côtes de Longefoy". Once at the top at the village of Notre-Dame du Pré, the finish highest line in the history of the Tour is only 50 km away - of which 35 are uphill!
Once in Val Thorens, you'll total more than 4,500 meters of climbing... over a very challenging and spectacular route from beginning to end.

Unlike previous years, we have limited our package to a very small group (the maximum number of people we can accommodate is 20), while keeping the same number of staff. This decision is based on maximizing clients' experience by providing an unmatched level of service.

Étape du Tour 2019: Albertville to Val Thorens, Sunday, July 21st, 2019

The race will take place on July 21st, 2019
  Conveniently, the ride takes place during the same period as the Tour de France, thereby allowing cyclists the exciting opportunity of both viewing and riding an actual stage from the most renowned cycling event in the world. All in all, it is an event not to be missed and is a great alternative to participating in the Marmotte, which sells out fast.

In 2019, Cyclomundo also offers another Gran Fondo: La Marmotte.
