L’ÉTAPE AUSTRALIA BY LE TOUR DE FRANCE

The count-down is on for the first Tour de France event to be held in Australia!

L’Étape Australia by Le Tour de France is a cycling event run under professional conditions for amateurs, with closed roads, a challenging route, a Sprint and a King of the Mountain section

There are many places to stay throughout the Snowy Mountains Jindabyne, Thredbo, Crackenback, Cooma, Berridale, Dalgety and surrounds ( Perisher and Charlotte’s Pass are winter resorts and the majority of accommodation will be closed at the time of the event).

Test your stamina and determination on a choice of two demanding and beautiful routes, both on fully closed roads and held under professional race conditions.

THE RACE

The race is expected to take between 4-7 hours over the 157km course which includes the difficult Col de Beloka and finishes with the demanding Col de Kosciuszko final climb, taking the route to a peak of 1,735m.

THE RIDE

The race is expected to take between 3-6 hours over the 126 km course is for those who wish to immerse themselves in the atmosphere and experience of L’Étape without the added pressure of the final Col de Kosciuszko climb. At 126km and a peak of 1,300m the Ride is still a significant challenge
