L’Étape Australia by Tour de France is the only Official Tour de France in Australia. Open to everyone, the event replicates a mountainous stage of the Tour de France and offers amateur riders the closest experience to ride in the Tour de France they can get. Held on fully closed roads, riders will have the peace of mind of a traffic-free course and can focus on their cycling.
Food Zones and spectators points will be setup along the course for supporters and locals to enjoy a warm Tour de France atmosphere. Local residents and local famers are also invited to create and display Tour de France related artworks that will be featured in a 26-min documentary aired nationally on SBS.
