TOUR DE FRANCE

What is
L’Étape du Tour?

The Tour de France is the world’s most traditional road cycling event, as well as the largest annual sporting event in the world. The race was first organized in 1903, and in the present, Tour de France brings together the stars of cycling: only the best in the world can ride in the 3,600-km competition. It is a 22-day event (being only 2 rest days for the athletes) that is traditionally held in the month of July. The Tour consists of 20 stages in different routes, through France and nearby countries. For all its grandeur, the Tour de France has become an object of desire for many athletes and spectators. Each year the competition takes more than 12 million people to the streets to cheer for the athletes along the roads.

Since 1993, L’Étape du Tour offers amateur cyclists and cycling enthusiasts the opportunity to experience an event with the feel of the Tour de France. Allowing people to experiment the real sensations of professional cycling, the event soon started to attract cyclists from all over the world, traveling to France in search of the experience. Nowadays, approximately 13,000 cyclists from over 50 countries gather in L’Étape du Tour. Each stage offers the opportunity to ride a different route, discover new regions and combine a sporting challenge with tourism in one of the most beautiful countries in Europe.

Through an unprecedented partnership between private initiative and A.S.O. – Amaury Sports Organisation, one of the world’s most respected sporting events came to Brazil in 2015. After three successful editions in the years of 2015, 2016 and 2017 in the city of Cunha, SP, L’Étape Brasil went to Campos do Jordão, where it will hold the event for the third time. The sixth edition of L’Étape Brasil 2020 takes place from December 4th to 6th.

After years of success in cities in the countryside of São Paulo, we decided to go to Rio de Janeiro, and now we present L’Étape Rio By Tour de France that will happen June 25-27, 2021.
