The Etape du Tour is the only Cyclosportive that allows amateur riders to test themselves on closed roads on the exact same route as a Tour de France stage.
The 2019 Etape du Tour route will take place on Sunday 21 July on a 140km course between Albertville and Val Thorens. This is the same as stage 20 of the 2019 Tour de France on Saturday 27 July which is the deciding stage for the battle for the yellow jersey.
Sports Tours international has been taking cyclists from all over the world to ride the Etape since the days when entry was through paper application forms in Vélo Magazine!
