This event provides the opportunity to ride a series of mountain stages (approximately 110km per day) and about 8,000m of climbing, and offers a Tour de France multi mountain stage experience. Following a stunning warm up ride around Lake Annecy on arrival, the events starts with a timed mountain Prologue which is used to seed riders into the appropriate groups. Thereafter comes 3 mountain stages follow, scaling some of the famous Tour de France mountain climbs such as the Cols des Aravis and the Col de la Crox Fry.
