We anticipate a 07:00/08:00 start for the Etape, so we have organised early breakfast at the Club Med and we will organise a coach transfer for you and your bike from l’Alpe d’Huez to Briancon for the start of the race. The coach will leave l’Alpe d’Huez at approx 4.30am to arrive on time in Briançon.
The organisers allocate pens according to likely finish time and historic Etape performance, therefore faster riders start nearer the front and the slower riders at the back. Please note, we have no influence over your starting pen. The Etape du Tour is a closed road sportive. There will be water stops en-route and mechanical assistance provided by SHIMANO. Along the route, there are certain times that you must have passed certain spots
Especially for Sports Tours international riders there will be 2 additional food and assistance points on the route which give you better access than at the normal feed stops. many of our riders actually use just our feed stops and avoid the official ones.
Today you can enjoy the high quality facilities of the Club Med l’Alpe d’Huez with its 18m outdoor swimming pool. More information can be found here : https://www.clubmed.fr/r/alpe-d-huez/s
