This option is aimed at cyclosportive enthusiasts who belong to a club/cycling federation or have a medical certificate expressly permitting cycle racing and who want to take part in an event and race against other competitors.
This option is only open to race bikes and not to e-bikes.
A timing chip will be provided to each participant for the timed option. Please note, only certain sections of the route will be timed and not the whole event! It takes in mountain passes, slight gradients and even some gravel bike sections...
You'll need to be a wily, strategic soul and a total racer to win it, as it's not the first past the finish line who'll be hailed the winner!
The routes will be published soon so you can prepare for this unique test.
The trekking option is suitable for all.
It gives participants the chance to explore the Portes du Soleil in their own time - pleasure comes first! This option, unlike the "timed" one, is open to all types of bikes, including e-Bike/e-Road.
"Speedelec" bikes may also be used, as long as they have the necessary equipment for the set-up, a bicycle licence and insurance.
Participants using an e-Bike must select this trekking option.
