L’Étape Australia follows in the footsteps of L’Étape du Tour (French for "a stage of the tour"), a mountainous stage of the Tour de France opened to amateur riders who rode the same course as the professionals and experienced what it is like to ride in Le Tour.
In 2017, the global cyclosportive event, comes to the Snowy Mountains of Australia for the second time.
L’Étape Australia offers two levels of participation, both on fully closed roads under professional race conditions and each featuring the King of the Mountain and Sprint sections. Adhering to the look, feel and delivery levels of the Tour de France, L’Étape Australia will bring the Tour de France to the Snowy Mountains of New South Wales.
Proposed as the ultimate challenge in Australian amateur cycling, the course will cover 160km featuring more than 3,000m of climbing. A shorter edition of the ride with less climbing will also be on offer, minus the pressure of racing.
