Etape du Tour: A day in the mountains PDF Print E-mail

4am on a Monday morning is not normally the time I like to try and eat a big breakfast, especially one that includes a Torq energy bar and enough food to normally last me several meals. However, this is not an average Monday morning.
This particular summer morning I am sitting in a small ski apartment in the French Alps resort of Valfrejus, getting ready to ride the 19th Etape du Tour, Act I, from Modane to Alpe D'Huez.

The Etape du Tour is one of the most famous amateur riding competitions in the world, and as a result attracts riders from every continent and of every age to ride a stage of that year's Tour de France. It is the closest us mortals will get to experiencing what the professional riders we follow have to endure in arguably the world's toughest sporting competition, albeit we only ride 1 stage out of their 21!


This is my second year of riding the Etape and will certainly not be my last. Last year the event took place in the Pyrenees and finished high on the Tourmalet, which was a 22km slog after two Cols and 100-miles in the legs. This year, however, the organisers (who are the same team who run the Tour de France) have selected a shorter 70-mile route in the French Alps that will take us over the Col de Telegraphe and Col de Galibier before the final punishing climb up the famous 21 hairpins to Alpe D'Huez.

Our loyal band on Villains have just returned from La Toussuire in the Alpes and we've just seen the first of no doubt many many stunning photo's of the trip. Hope you all enjoyed the trip folks and perhaps we can get you to write some words for the website about it....
