The Etape du Tour Mondovelo, created in 1992 to offer amateur cyclists the chance to test their mettle on the route of one of the Tour de France mountain stages, has become the reference event for amateur riders all over the world. Over the last few years, enrolments have been systematically limited to 9,000 participants, with growing waiting lists and increased numbers of refused applications each year. In light of this success, the organisers have sought to implement a solution to satisfy the maximum number of riders. This year, lEtape du Tour Mondovelo will be a tale of two stages, for which enrolment is open as of today, 16th November 2011.

With two challenges instead of just one, cyclists motivated by "l'Etape" will be able to choose the one which best matches their abilities and preparation. The most ambitious could even plan on trying out for a prestigious double. In order to put rider comfort first, the size of the field is limited for each event to 6,000 participants. You can enrol on-line on, as well as by using the enrolment form in the November edition of Velo Magazine.

The two stages of "l'Etape du Tour Mondovelo:

Monday 11th July 2011 Sunday 17th July 2011
Stage I, Modane Valfrejus - LAlpe dHuez
Over a relatively short format of 109 km, the first stage offers the opportunity of taking part in an ambitious challenge whilst limiting the risk of disappointment. It is a very prestigious stage, since the Col du Galibier pass, via its most demanding side, is on the menu, before the formidable climb up to the resort of Alpe d'Huez.
Stage II, Issoire - Saint-Flour
The 208-km route is one of the longest covered by the event. Apart from the distance, the difficulty lies in the three climbs to be tackled in the heart of the Cantal Mountains. Amongst the courageous riders who reach the finishing line in the upper reaches of the town of Saint-Flour, some of them will surely have accomplished the "double challenge" of l'Etape du Tour - Mondovelo.

A medical certificate is needed for this event.
