It's time to make history. The unprecedented demand to ride the most sought after Sportive in the world means that for the first time ever 2011 will provide the opportunity to conquer two of the most challenging and rewarding stages of the greatest show on earth - Le Tour de France. Will you choose the classic 109km Alpine adventure from Modane to Alpe d'Huez, with the mighty Col du Galibier in your path? Or maybe a soiree over some of the most beautiful roads in the Massif Central on a 208km fairytale from Issoire to St Flour? One, the other or both? Either way you'll need to prepare for a memorable day with each route containing hidden gems and 3,500m of ascending.

TWO FULL ROUTE RECONS (46min Alpine | 31min M.Central)
RIDE GUIDE (tips on training, nutrition & riding technique)
LOGISTICS (travel, hotels, tour operators)
OUTTAKES & BULLET CAMS (another 40min of footage)

Special Thanks

 

 


For the 2nd year in a row, we've combined resources with Chris and Helen Balfour from Pyractif – Pyrenean Cycling Holidays & Training Camps. It's always a pleasure working with Chris and Helen. Be sure to visit them for training and recon camps in the Pyrenees.

For the first time, we've had the pleasure of being supported by Prendas Ciclismo. Prendas is one of this year's Title Sponsors as well as supplying cycle clothing for Mike Cotty. We hope to welcome Prendas back as Title Sponsor for 2012.

Finally, and same as every year for the past 5 years, let me thank Mike Cotty from Cannondale for continuing to ride hard and loving it! Every year we push the envelope a bit further and Mike is never one to complain - never mind the sub-zero temperatures on Galibier this year! Chapeau.
