THE BEST CLIMBER CHALLENGE
Every year, L’Etape du Tour offers you a unique challenge: tackling the same stage in the same race conditions as the professional cyclists on the Tour de France!
One of the most prestigious jerseys on the Tour de France is the one for best climber.
This year l’Etape du Tour boasts a timing system allowing your sporting level to be revealed as precisely as possible.
Like every year, you will be detected on the start line (Briançon) as well on the official finish line at the top of l'Izoard.
The general ranking as well as your average speed will be calculated between these two points.
All the climbs will be timed and give rise to an additional scratch ranking called the “King of the Mountains challenge”. The first three riders in the scratch ranking will win their race number for the 2018 edition L’Etape du Tour.
