L’Etape du Tour, Nice

Date: 04/07/21
Cost: £100
Minimum fundraising: £1,000
Distance: 175km

Event Overview

The 30th edition of the Étape du Tour de France will take place on 4 July 2021 in Nice. You will cover 175kms and a little more than 3,600 m of positive altitude difference in the Nice backcountry on the same course that saw Julian Alaphilippe ride to victory on last August 30th.

The valleys along the route were hit hard by storm Alex a few weeks ago and the roads have not yet been rebuilt. The beautiful villages of the Vesubia valley will show the scars of this disaster for many years to come. But in order for life to start again little by little, we have decided, together with the city of Nice, to use the original course meant for the Étape du Tour de France.

What’s included

  • Entry to the race.
  • Bespoke high-performance cycling jerseys
