Description

Take on L’Étape Australia by Tour de France this November led by Mitchelton-SCOTT super star – Esteban Chaves!

The L’Etape Australia is a unique event, providing an experience as close to riding the Tour de France as is possible in Australia. Kicking off in the Jindabyne Snowy Mountains, NSW – you will have complete road closure and tackle a challenging, demanding course (of 108km or 170km) offering the equivalent ascent of a mountainous stage in the Tour itself. Painful – yes. But a true challenge and sure to be an emphatic feeling on completion.

Taking place on November 30th – prepare yourself for what is going to be an epic day out!

This year we are offering both rider and spectator itineraries so the whole family can enjoy a wonderful weekend away in the breathtakingly beautiful Snowy Mountains.
