Friday 29 - Saturday 30 Nov, 2019
- The Ride4 - 7 hrs
- The Race3 - 6 hrs
L’Étape Australia provides amateur riders with an experience as close to riding in the Tour de France as it is possible to get with fully closed roads and a mountainous course that is the equal of a mountainous stage of the Tour de France.
The local Snowy Mountain community have embraced the Tour de France riding through their towns and villages; they come out in their thousands with cow bells and flags encouraging and supporting the riders along the route. The locals dress the entire area in yellow, green and polka dot; phenomenal bike artworks adorn the entire route.
The Race will take riders from Jindabyne to Rocky Plains, Berridale, the King of the Mountain sections at Col de Beloka and Col de Kosciuszko, descending back to Jindabyne. The Race route is longer this year at 170km with a 3,000m height gain, with the new, long decent. The Race will have four Food Zones and two Energy Zones.
The Ride will follow the same route as the Race but will return to Jindabyne after Col de Beloka to finish at the L’Étape Australia Village, which this year returns to the banks of Lake Jindabyne. The Ride is 108km with a 1,600m height gain. The Ride will have two Food Zones and one Energy Zone.
The Finish for both the Race and the Ride in Jindabyne will bring the riders, supporters and the local community together in a festive atmosphere with Matt Keenan calling in the riders as they cross the line.
