The Tour de France is extending its cyclosportive offerings with Explore Nice by Le Tour de France. Held from 8th-14th June, the three new sportives take in Nice’s emblematic Promenade des Anglais and the Col de la Bonette, Europe’s highest cycling road.
The sportives are:
The 15000D+ : The Full Monty, a seven-stage, six-night, full-board adventure that includes timed ascents of one mountain pass per day. Participants will be able to take part either in a team or in the individual classification.
The 7000D+ : A four-stage, three-night, full-board escapade. Riders will take part in two 25km time-trials: one on the vertiginous Col de la Bonette; the other on a closed stretch of road in Nice.
The 2000D+ : A two-stage weekend interlude, combining a challenging ride on Saturday in the Nicois hinterland, plus a time-trial on a closed stretch of the Promenade des Anglais on Sunday.
Register with ASO challenges here to experience the joys of riding in the Niçois hinterland and sourthern Alps.
