The Haute Route Pyrenees begins in Anglet on August 20th, nishing in France's fourth-largest city, Toulouse on August 26th. After a brutal rst day and a summit nish in La Pierre St-Martin, riders will be encamped in the heart of the mountains. The wild beauty and savage challenge of the most famous cols in the region (Tourmalet, Marie-Blanque, Aubisque, Soulor) is supplemented by climbs new to the Haute Route like the magical ascent of Cap de Long, via the 'Routes des Lacs,' featuring multiple ramps above 12%. Two two-night stays in Argelès-Gazost and Saint-Lary Soulan further reinforce the Haute Route Pyrenees as the most intimate of the European events.
The sixth running of the Haute Route Alps starts in Nice on August 28th and nishes in Geneva on September 3rd. In addition to tackling both sides of the Col du Galibier - a climb steeped in cycling history like no other - the region's highest pass, rising above 2700m, Col de la Bonette, features on stage two. Far from the longest climb of the week, the 12% sections of the unmistakable Lacets de Montvernier represents one of the tougher and more memorable challenges for the peloton while new climbs like the Col du Tra will test the peloton as the race edges closer to the nish on the shore of Lake Geneva. Ascents up the col de l'Izoard, Madeleine and summit nishes in some of the prestigious alpine towns of Courchevel and Megeve make the Haute Route Alps a must-do event for amateur cyclists.
The Haute Route Dolomites Swiss Alps runs from Geneva to Venice between September 5th and 11th. Perhaps the most visually arresting climb in Switzerland, San Gottardo, has been added to the Haute Route roster - a formidable summit nish to stage two with its cobble stone sections. The most dramatic climbs of the Dolomites again feature towards the end of the week, including the double ascent of the Stelvio, the Gavia and Passo Giau. The 12 summits above 2000m, 900km of riding and 21000m of climbing undoubtedly make the Haute Route Dolomites Swiss Alps the most demanding of the three weeks.
