Be at the heart of the action at a pro cycling race
Here at Sports Tours International we’ve been taking people around the globe for over 45 years to experience some of the world’s best sporting events. We’ve developed relationships with some of the most iconic professional cycling events around and we’re delighted to be an official tour operator to so many different cycling races. We’re very proud to offer more VIP and hospitality experiences than anyone else and we believe that experiencing pro cycling as a VIP will make a trip with us live long in your memory. These experiences allow you to immerse yourself in the heart of the action and enjoy added luxury. This blog details what you can expect from some of our most popular experiences.
Start to finish day experience
Want to get a first-hand look at all the major points throughout your favourite cycle race without the need for a car or helicopter?
Our Start to Finish Day Experience will provide you with all the insight you’ll need to truly appreciate an event, you’ll get great access to see the riders up close and it will finish with you watching a race live in person!
These can be booked with a bus to take you to all the important vantage points, before you end the day with some well-earned hospitality.
A day in an official car
What better way to see a stage than from straight in the middle of all the action? Our ultimate experience offers you the full day to get a true feel for cycling life out on the course in your very own official race car. After meeting your guide in the morning it’s out onto the course for a once-in-a-lifetime perspective that any cycling fanatic would kill to be a part of. You’ll even grab lunch en-route as you drive past crowds of adoring fans.
The unmissable insider cycling experience!
Most experiences come with a VIP parking ticket or shuttle service so you can park your car and travel as you need, but be sure to double-check as experiences vary depending on the event.
Stage start access
Autograph and selfie hunters will be keen to jump on this one…
If you’ve ever attended a televised cycling event, or any televised sporting event for that matter, you’ll be aware there are specific areas restricted for sponsors, cameras, celebrities and such.
Our Stage Start access gives you full VIP access to these behind-the-scenes areas as well as the riders’ paddock! You’ll get great access to see your favourite riders and teams and you’ll see how the world’s best prepare before the start of a race.
Stage Finish Hospitality
Similar to our previous offering, our Stage Finish Hospitality gives you exclusive, invitation-only access to the areas close to the end of the course for sponsors, teams, famous ex-cyclists etc.
There’s an elevated spectators viewing area, but you’ll also have a giant screen to watch all the action live.
Drinks and snacks will be served throughout, so why not enjoy a glass of champagne before the podium ceremony?
So if you want to get closer to the action of a pro cycling race make sure you see our VIP hospitality experiences to help you get more from your trip.

It was a wild weekend at the Marathon du Mont Blanc. Sadly the weather closed in and put paid to some events but a number of our runners completed the full marathon around Europe’s highest peak. Congratulations to everyone on a mega achievement 🏔
