Welcome to the Pyrenees and the final week of the Le Tour de France 2018.
Our staff will collect you from Toulouse and transfer to our hotel near Carcassonne.
After lunch we will jump in our vans and explore the medieval citadel at Carcassonne, known as ‘La Cité’, encompassing no less than 53 towers, strung together by two enormous concentric walls, surrounded by a moat, and punctuated here and there by heavy barbicans, portcullis and draw-bridges.
If the afternoon couldn’t get any better, Stuey has organised an exclusive meet and greet with one of his former pro teams on their rest day We will meet the riders, Director Sportif, mechanics and seigneurs and even have a private tour of the team bus. An experience not to be missed!
Our first day will finish with a group dinner to discuss the day been and days coming over a few wines.
Dusting off the vino from last night we will head out of our hotel early by bike towards the Stage 16 start in Carcassonne where we will have VIP access to the Village and Paddock, the exclusive area for all teams as they prepare for the start of the first stage in the Pyrenees. Let Stuey lead you through the maze of riders and buses, introducing you to his former teammates and directors. Let him know your favourite rider and he will make every effort to get your selfie.
Dinner tonight will be at your leisure in and around our hotel.
After breakfast we will travel in luxury vans towards the course, stopping in Genos we will watch the stage as a group including roadside lunch and drinks. Be sure to have your camera with you today as the peloton race through our vantage point towards the final climb of the day.
Following the race we will transfer to our premium hotel in the Pyrenees town of Lourdes. Take some time to check in and freshen up before we enjoy a group dinner to share stories and photos.
Sprint Stage Finish
With only three stages of racing remaining in the battle for General Classification, we will enjoy an exclusive experience through our Official Tour Operator license, taking you to the podium for an exclusive photo opportunity on the podium, creating a memory to last a lifetime.
Once in Pau we will take to the fence on the finish line to witness Matthews vs Kittel vs Sagan in the final bunch sprint before Paris. Following the podium presentations we will drive back to Lourdes for dinner at your leisure.
