MORE ABOUT THE TERRAIN
We have selected some of the best stages offering a mix of all terrains, but there will be a lot of climbing!
The start from the Chambery is definitely not to hard, but after those sweet hills everything else is more demanding!
Some of the climbs can be challenging as well with some steep sections, but generally for short distances. The descents are generally technical but well-paved and safe. There will be some rolling terrain as well, but honestly not much!
