    Rapha and l’Etape du Tour

    An alpine adventure awaits and the excitement builds ahead of another edition of l’Etape du Tour.

    13 March 2018

    Offering the unique opportunity to ride a stage of the world's most famous bike race, l'Etape du Tour returns in 2018 for another alpine adventure in the footsteps of the Tour de France.

    As official clothing sponsor, Rapha has designed a limited edition collection to celebrate the ride and the Rapha Cycling Club (RCC) will be on hand to support members riding the route through every turn of the pedals.

    This year’s event plots a winding route through the mountains of the Haute-Savoie region, following the same profile as Stage 10 of the race.

    Riders tackle four major climbs en route from the shores of Lake Annecy to the mountain village of Le Grand-Bornand.

    L'etape du Tour Collection

    Once a proudly independent mountain kingdom, Savoie is now more commonly known as the setting for many of the most memorable mountain duels in Tour de France history. The region’s distinctive flag, along with the route profile, provides the inspiration for Rapha’s l'Etape du Tour collection, which uses the best fabrics and technology from our main range to help you conquer the climbs.
