L'Etape Australia by Le Tour de France

L'Etape Australia by Le Tour de France

DATE: Saturday 2nd December 2017

L’Étape Australia will provide the closest experience an amateur rider can get to competing in the Tour de France with fully closed roads in the mountainous landscape of the Snowy Mountains region of New South Wales.

L’Étape Australia will provide a new dimension to the Australian cycle calendar; replicating L’Étape du Tour in format, look and feel and proving a weekend in which riders and supporters can immerse themselves in the heady atmosphere of the Tour de France.

The two routes (the Race and the Ride) ensure L’Étape Australia will satisfy both the most competitive rider and the rider who wishes to participate, albeit competitively and over a challenging route, but not necessarily to push relentlessly for the Yellow jersey.

The social, celebratory and administrative heart of the event will be at L’Étape Australia Village which will be encamped on the banks of Lake Jindabyne. Add almost 160km of fully closed roads, a King of the Mountain and Sprint section and all the paraphernalia of a major cycle event and all you need is riders.

Many of the riders who have completed L’Étape du Tour in Europe or the Americas will make the pilgrimage to Mount Kosciuszko, Australia’s highest mountain, joining the Australians, New Zealanders and riders from Asia testing their stamina and determination on a route endorsed by Tour de France General Director Christian Prudhomme.
