KLUB x le Tour de France
Your favourite race in yellow is fast approaching and we've lined up a whole bunch of KLUB events and competitions to celebrate. Are you in?
Exploring l'Étape du Tour
Have you registered for this years l'Étape du Tour? The 29th edition will take you on a 135 kilometre route from Albertville to Val Thorens, with a total positive altitude difference of 4,563 metres before you can enjoy your finisher beer, at an altitude of 2,365 metres... the highest finish line in the history of the race!
L'Étape du Tour will never be easy, whether it's your first or one of many, and it's exactly that "it never gets easier you just go faster" attitude that keeps people coming back, year after year.
With that in mind, join the KATUSHA crew for a recce, so that you at least have some idea of what to expect on the day. On Saturday June 29th, 3 weeks before the race, we'll guide you along a 120km route with 2500 D+ including the first 73 km of the stage of the Tour: Albertville - Cormet de Roselend - Bourg Saint Maurice - Moutiers - Albertville.
Full details and registration for free, here.
