L'Etape du Tour: Ride to Win with MAVIC

Mavic wants to put you in the best seat in the house for a stage of the Tour de France. Are you ready? Just complete the L’Etape du Tour: RIDE TO WIN with MAVIC event on February 26th, and we’ll enter you in a drawing to ride in their neutral service car at a stage of the 2019 Tour de France this summer. Mavic will also throw in a pair of the limited edition Cosmic Pro Carbon Tour de France wheels. Talk about a Grand Prize!

Mavic is also offering three entries to the sold-out 2019 L’Etape du Tour, a ride that traces the same route as the 20th stage of the Tour de France. The experience of riding the L’Etape is close to the Tour: it’s the only way cyclists can ride an entire stage of the TdF in a race scenario. And if you’ve never ridden a route closed to cars, you’re in for a treat.

This year's L’Etape du Tour route starts in Albertville and finishes in Val Thorens, France. Being a stage of the TDF, it’s tough. But you already assumed that, right? The ride includes nearly 4,600m // 15000ft of climbing over 135km // 84 miles. You’ll need a solid training plan to crush the 2019 L'Etape du Tour.


Ride and complete one of the L’Etape du Tour: Ride to Win with MAVIC events on February 26th to be entered into the prize drawing.
