L'étape du Tour - Act 2


On next October 8 and 9, the first edition of La Etapa Argentina by Le Tour de France, will take place in the provinces of Mendoza and San Juan (Republic of Argentina). The event is a cyclosportive ride which will bring the essence of the most important race of the world into Argentina.

La Etapa Argentina by Le Tour de France will go through the main roads of the two Argentinean provinces which have the most important cycling tradition in all the country. In Mendoza and San Juan cycling is indeed one of the main sports and for that reason the event will join together thousands of bikers on the road and a huge crowd at the edge of that same road.

More than 3000 sportsmen are expected to take the start of the race and, considering the fact that La Etapa Argentina by Le Tour de France is a cyclosportive event, it will be open as well to professional and non professional cyclists, both from Argentina and other countries. During two days they will receive the opportunity to share adventure together and the greatest reward will surely be to take up the challenge and reach the finish after a 250 km ride.

The event will be divided into two stages. The first one will take place in the province of Mendoza and will count 125 kilometers, with a 4th category hill on the program. The second stage will go through the province of San Juan, along the dam of Ullum, upon the distance of 124,5 kilometers, with a 3rd category climb.

As for the organization, La Etapa Argentina by Le Tour de France will be supported by the National Institute for Tourism Promotion (INPROTUR), reported to the Ministry for Tourism of Argentina and will also rely on the support of Amaury Sport Organization, which organizes the Tour de France and the Etape du Tour Mondovélo. On its side, the track and road Argentinean Cycling Federation
(FACPyR) will be in charge of the economical aspect.

La Etapa Argentina by Le Tour de France wants to find its place in both Argentinean and South American cycling calendar. It will be possible to enjoy the day in family and thousands of cycling fans will get the opportunity to take part in a huge adventure.
