CHRIS FROOME TO RIDE IN L'ETAPE AUSTRALIA
Exclusive to NSW, the world-class cycling event is the renowned race for amateur road cyclists, secured by the NSW Government through Destination NSW.
The 157 kilometre course is described by Tour de France Director General Christian Prudhomme as providing a very similar experience to a mountainous stage of the Tour de France, with a multitude of stunning landscapes, topographies and ascents.
NSW Deputy Premier and Member for Monaro John Barilaro said the NSW Government was proud to support L’Etape Australia by Le Tour de France.
“I encourage cyclists across the country to register to be part of this exciting experience in the Snowy Mountains which provides the opportunity to ride with three-time Tour de France champion Chris Froome, one of the giants of world cycling.”
More than 3,500 riders participated in the inaugural event in 2016, with 95 per cent recommending it to friends.
L’Etape Australia by Le Tour de France will take place on 2 December 2017.
Early bird registrations are now open.
