RACE DETAILS

L’Étape du Tour de France is Europe’s premier cycling event. It is an immense sporting challenge, but also a tourist adventure which will enable you to discover some of the most beautiful parts of France. Every year the regions which host the event offer breathtaking scenery.

 

L'Etape du Tour de France 2020

The 30th edition of the Étape du Tour de France will be held in Nice on 5 July 2020. You will face a 177 km course with an elevation gain of 3,570 m in the hinterland of Nice.

A rising false flat in the first 50 kilometres will help you to warm up before tackling the first challenge of the day, the Col de la Colmiane. After going over the top, a 20 km descent will give their legs a break prior to climbing the major difficulty of the event, the Col de Turini. You will need to leave something in the tank to avoid mistakes in the extremely long descent that will take them back to Nice. The Col d'Èze, ideally positioned near the end of the course, is where you will have to burn their final reserves against the backdrop of the superb view from the Moyenne Corniche. It will also give riders our first glimpse of the finish line, just a few kilometres down the road, which you will cross with their arms raised in exultation to celebrate their exploit!
