Official Tour Operator : From 5 to 7th July 2024 (option to 8th July) :
Take part in the Etape du Tour 2024 Nice-Col de la Couillole in optimal conditions and coached by the French climber Brice Feillu, ex-pro winner of a high mountain stage in 2009, 7 participations in the Tour de France including 2 times 16th in the general classification.
In addition to the precious bib, you will benefit from complete logistical organization, support and expert advice in order to fully and calmly enjoy this crazy cycling adventure on the same route as the 20th stage of the Tour de France 2024.
You will be accommodated with full board in the very comfortable *** Promotel hotel in Carros where you can leave your vehicle there all weekend. We take care of the rest. If you wish, we can also provide shuttle service from Nice airport. We will take you to the departure site in Nice on Sunday morning and bring you back to the hotel after your arrival at the top of the Col de la Couillole. If you wish, we can also provide the shuttle to Nice airport.
During 2 briefings, you will benefit from our advices and tips to tackle your big challenge in the best conditions (effort management, nutrition and hydration, equipment, inflation, safety, etc.).
The Saturday morning before the event, secured by a support vehicle and accompanied by 2 bike coaches including French former-pro Brice Feillu, we will go for a relaxed 40km bike ride to collect the bibs and feel the atmosphere at the Départ Village in Nice.
You will appreciate a dietary breakfast adapted to a very long effort and allowing you not to get up too early.
We will provide you with 2 bottles and all the Overstim’s solid and liquid supplies necessary in order to be independent and have maximum control over what you are going to consume. In addition to the waiting drink and the 2 starting bottles, we will provide you with unit sachets of Overstim’s preparation to easily refill your bottles. You will choose your perfumes. All you have to do is add water.
You can of course consume your own dietary products if you wish. So that you can fill your pockets during the stage, unload and/or collect your things, we will organize our own resupply at the top of the Col de Turini at km 59.5.
Brice Feillu and a qualified coach will accompany you by bike to your starting point. A caring staff will be able to collect your jackets and your waiting drinks just before your departure.
