Recently retired from professional cycling, one of France's most enduringly popular athletes, Thomas VOECKLER, is still highly involved in the sport. He always dreamed of establishing his own event after hanging up his cleats as means of sharing his passion for the sport with enthusiasts and to meet amateur cyclists who cheered him on throughout his career - but who he never had the opportunity to thank!
His main objective is that participants - and all those who accompany them - have a good time, with friends or family, on a road bike or e-bike. The easily accessible routes offer entertainment for all, from seasoned cyclists to occasional riders.
The diversity of locations and routes in the Portes du Soleil, including many mountain passes that Thomas remembers personally, is the ideal place to bring to life the "Cyclo Thomas VOECKLER".
