Explore by Le Tour de France is a both an innovative and powerful new amateur concept proposed by the organizers of the Tour de France, the world renown professional cycling event.
Our main ambition, while developing this new concept, consisted in sharing our passion for discovering new territories, unknown to a majority of amateur cyclists.
Our ambition also relies in our capacity to propose a dedicated Tour de France experience for amateur cyclists. As an Explorer, you will be guided by former professional cyclists, who have participated to this unique competition, you will receive advice from the Tour de France nutritionists throughout the preparation, you will take part in dedicated conferences involving Tour de France key members and you will find many ingredients which makes today the Tour de France the most followed cycling race in the world.
Explore by Le Tour de France will start in June 2015 since our Explorers will enjoy a unique discovery of the Nice Métropole territory.
From the French Riviera and the Promenade des Anglais up to the Col de la Bonette, the highest cycling road in Europe, three different sporting formats will be proposed to the Explorers.
The 15000D+ is a 7-stages, 6-nights adventure on a full board basis. One mountain pass per day will be timed and Explorers will be able to participate to the TEAM classification or the individual one.
The 7000D+ is a 4-stages, 3-nights adventure on a full board basis during which the Explorers will face two 25 kilometers time-trial, one on the highly famous Col de la Bonette and its 1700 meters positive height difference and the other on the privatized roads of Nice.
The 2000D+ is a 2-stages weekend adventure combining a cyclosportive in the highest surroundings of Nice on Saturday and a time-trial on the privatized Promenade des Anglais on Sunday.
