Le Tour De France coming back to the UK
Human Race have announced in conjunction with ASO they will be bringing us Dragon Ride L'Etape Wales by Le Tour De France, a fantastic Sportive (as most Dragon Rides are) that takes a lot of inspiration from the legendary French ride. The idea is to bring that experience of Le Tour De France to Wales, offering cyclists one of the most unique and fun riding adventures they can have.
In the spirit of Le Tour De France there will be the famous red cars, history boards and podiums in the style of Le Tour De France as well as bibs and medals. You'll also be able to try some great French food and the top male and female times for the King of the Mountains climb will win tickets to final stage of the tour at Champs Elysées.
As part of the Dragon Tour, you can also take in part in many other events over the weekend - Day 1 sees you taking on 102KM, Day 2 is 96KM whilst on Day 3 you can choose between a variety of different distances as you take on the Dragon Ride. You can pick from the Macmillan at 100KM, Medio Fordo at 153KM, Gran Fordo at 230KM or if you really want a challenge go for the Dragon Devil - a staggering 305KM. Depending on how many days and events you want to take part in you can get package deals from Human Race where you get a great discount on multiday racing.
The event will cater to all needs with feed stations dotted around the course as well as trained marshals and medical staff on hand to give any necessary assistance. In addition they have a fully stocked out start and finish area with car parking, mechanical support and more. Taking place in South Wales you will get to see and experience some of the best scenery you can imagine.
