L’Étape Australia by Tour de France

 

Take on L’Étape Australia by Tour de France this November led by Mitchelton-SCOTT super stars – Esteban Chaves and Amanda Spratt! 

The L’Etape Australia is a unique event, providing an experience as close to riding the Tour de France as is possible in Australia. Kicking off in the Jindabyne Snowy Mountains, NSW – you will have complete road closure and tackle a challenging, demanding course (of 108km or 170km) offering the equivalent ascent of a mountainous stage in the Tour itself. Painful – yes. But a true challenge and sure to be an emphatic feeling on completion. 

Taking place on November 30th – prepare yourself for what is going to be an epic day out!

This year we are offering both rider and spectator itineraries so the whole family can enjoy a wonderful weekend away in the breathtakingly beautiful Snowy Mountains.

L’Étape Australia Cycling Tour Package Includes:

  • Two nights, premium accommodation in the Snowy Mountains
  • Daily hot breakfast
  • Return transfers to and from Canberra airport
  • Guaranteed entry into L’Etape Australia
  • Professional bike set up, on arrival
  • Assistance with bike pack down, on departure
  • Exclusive race tips from cycling legend, Stuart O’Grady
  • Mummu Cycling is an official tour operator for L’Etape du Tour and L’Etape Australia
