Haute Route Alpe d’Huez means business, pulling out the Queen card straight from the off for Stage One. All eyes will quickly turn to the Col de la Croix de Fer as the first col of the day and the highest of the event. Arguably one of the trickier climbs to tackle due to its ever-changing gradient which halts any rhythm, distractions are also aplenty with an ever-changing backdrop from lush forests to stunning waterfalls. Double trouble awaits here as riders will be taking on the famous Tour de France climb from two directions before pushing onto the finish line atop Alpe d’Huez.

Fewer miles certainly don’t mean less kudos with Stage Two packing 3,000m of elevation and two categorised climbs into just 69 kilometres. Amongst the line-up is the Col de Sarenne, a climb that takes no prisoners and featuresseveral ramps above 13%. Brutal but beautiful in equal measure, you will have to work hard for this one!

While all eyes may be on the challenge of the climbs, the unforgettable Auris balcony road will also be a guaranteed showstopper. Carved out of the side of the cliff, the stunning road offers sprawling views across the valley that will leave a lasting impression. You have to see it to believe it!
