The route of L’Étape du Tour de France 2023, the big event that thousands of eager cyclosportive riders look forward to every year, was unveiled at the official presentation of the Tour de France and the Tour de France Femmes avec Zwift, held at the Palais des Congrès on Thursday. The 31st Étape du Tour de France will take the riders on a trek from Annemasse to Morzine, on the roads of Haute-Savoie, six days before the pro race.


Boasting an altitude gain of 4,100 m over a length of 152 km, the ultimate cyclosportive event promises a unique experience for each participant: the privilege of riding in deluxe conditions (technical support, refreshments, safety, etc.) on closed roads.


After “warming up” on the ascent to the col de Saxel, with an average gradient of around 4%, the peloton will tackle a succession of three category 1 passes: the col de Cou (7 km at 7.7%), col du Feu (5.9 km at 7.9%) and col de la Ramaz (13.9 km at 7.1%). A technical descent and a swift plunge into the valley will lead the riders to Samoëns, at the foot of the hors catégorie col de Joux Plane, an 11.6 km climb with an average gradient of 8.5%. From the top (1,691 m), a great descent will guide the participants to their goal and medal in Morzine.


Christian Prudhomme, Director of Le Tour de France:

“The ability to stomach one climb after another will be crucial to finishing the 31st edition of L’Étape du Tour de France. Riders will need to leave something in the tank for the col de Joux Plane, the toughest climb on the course, coming at the end of the stage with gradients approaching 10%. Eight months to go now, eight months to get the preparations right to ensure that the event is a memorable experience.”


Registration opens on time to at 4 pm on 2 November!
