Starting in Briancon, the 18th stage of the 104th edition of the Tour de France will hand you the experience of your life. Don't get fooled by the scenic landscape and jaw-dropping lake view - this route is not for the faint of heart. This year's l'Étape du Tour will offer you not one, but two challenging peaks to climb. If the Col de Vars with 2 190m elevation isn't much of a rival for you, you will be treated to the 10 finishing kilometres before Izoard - just shy of 9 % of average gradient.
We at ŠKODA AUTO share the same love for cycling you do. Every year we invite you to join us for the celebration of one of its biggest holiday for amateurs - the l'Étape du Tour. An event which lets you get the taste of the actual conditions of the Tour de France.
The lucky winners won't have to worry about a single thing. From airport pickup, accommodation, and bicycle transport, to slapping on the race number and saddling up - we will take care of it all.
