The Etape Du Tour comes every year and whilst the location varies from year to year, the approach to this sportive stays the same. Mountain routes are our training roads, our local rides which means we are the best choice for road bike training and for getting you Etape fit for the event wherever the location. Every year Yellovelo recce and train on the routes themselves so we can prepare you leagues ahead of everyone else.
Whether you are riding the event itself or just want a taste of what it means to ride to the best you can at this level, then come and join us on the Etape Du Tour Training Camp.

Ladies Riders Rookie Camp – 3 Days
Training in Brittany gives any rider the luxury of quiet roads and endless route options to suit various training programmes. Undulating terrain with surprisingly steep & cheeky gradients, invisible mountains and long descents all make an ideal training ground for any rider’s ambitions.
Why Brittany? What’s so special about it? Bernard Hinault 5 times Tour winner, Louison Bobbet Winner of the Tour De France three consecutive years, rookie David Gaudu who won Tour De L’Avenir in 2016 and not forgetting French pro rider with Giant, Warren Barguil were all Brittany born and trained! Not forgetting of course that the famous town of Plumelec that pops up in the Tour De France as well as hosting the 2016 European Cycling Championships. Enough said!
Yellovelo can assist coaches with guiding and vehicle support and plan routes and itineraries to suit the clubs training needs. Full board and accommodation provided and airport transfers available upon request.
