Australians can now register to be a part of the first ever Tour de France event will be held in Australia in 2016.
L’Etape Australia is a premier amateur road cycling race to be held under the banner of the world’s most iconic cycling event, the Tour de France.
The NSW Government, through its tourism and major events agency Destination NSW, has secured this landmark event for the next three years. SBS together with Lateral Events will coorganise and promote L’Etape Australia.
Riders will compete for the legendary Tour de France yellow, green, polka dot and white jerseys, with up to 10,000 amateur cyclists invited to race across three levels of participation.
The Race is the flagship competitive ride with significant mountainous terrain operated under professional race conditions, The Ride is a slightly shorter route for seasoned riders and The Ramble is an easier course accessible to riders of all abilities.
More information on L’Etape Australia 2016, including the race route, entry details and celebrity mentors will be announced in the coming months.
The waitlist is now open at the official L’Etape Australia website where riders can register for updates and be the first to reserve their place on the start line for December 2016.
