Some Etape du Tour history

The first Etape was in 1993. There is now an international series of Etape du Tour events all over the world - L’Étape by Tour de France.

Pau in the Pyrenees has been visited by the Etape du Tour most often but the last time the Etape du Tour took place in the Pyrenees was in 2014. The organisers have chosen the Alps due to its commercial success the last few years.

The longest Etape was in 2011 from Issoire to St Flour. A few years there were two Etapes per year; one in the Alps and one in the Pyrenees.

2022

The 30th edition of the "Étape du Tour de France" took place on the 10th of July 2022 following the stage 12 route of the Tour de France, between Briançon and Alpe d'Huez. It was one of the toughest Etapes yet with 170km and 4670m of elevation gain. In one big day out, you’ll tick-off some exquisite high-mountain passes like Col du Galibier (2642m), La Croix de fer (1850m), Col du Lautaret (2058m), finishing it all off on the iconic Alpe d’Huez.

The 2022 route was based on the legendary Briançon-Alpe d'Huez stage of 1986, where team mates Greg LeMond and Bernard Hinault rode victoriously over the finish line, shoulder-to-shoulder at Alpe d'Huez.

2020 and 2021

The 2020 and 2021 editions did not take place due to the Covid 19 epidemic.
