Total Elevation: 4563 m
The 2019 Etape du Tour starts in the Olympic town of Albertville and finishes at the highest ski resort in Europe – Val Thorens. The 29th Etape du Tour will replicate Stage 20 of the Tour de France, the de facto last day of the Tour de France, which will surely be an exciting stage to watch, with attacks coming from all sides against whoever happens to be in the Yellow Jersey.
The 2019 Etape will be a climber’s dream. With a distance of only 135 km and an elevation gain of over 4500 m, you will be very glad you did all those hill repeats in the spring and summer! The last climb alone is massive, at over 33 km long and with a vertical gain of over 1800 m (more than Ventoux!). It is not steep, however, with an average gradient of 5.5%.
44|5 Cycling Tours, like all previous years, has secured an Alpine chalet situated close to the finish and with easy access to the start line. We will pick you up at Geneva airport and from then on all your transport, most meals and accommodation is taken care of. We can even arrange a high-performance carbon-fiber bike for you on request. Let us take care of the logistics and support so you can make the most of your Etape weekend.
