Riders can enjoy the benefits of rolling road closures, motorbike outriders and lead vehicles, whilst riding in seeded groups commensurate with ability and supported by a professional crew including masseurs, mechanics and neutral service.

This event provides the opportunity to ride a series of mountain stages (approximately 110-120km per day), and is created to offer a 'Tour de France' like experience. Following a stunning warm up ride around Lake Annecy on arrival, the event starts with a timed mountain stage which is used to seed riders into the appropriate groups. Thereafter comes 3 mountain stages crossing some of the infamous mountain stages such as the Cols des Aravis.
