Tour de Romandie

In 2016, Chris Froome launched an early attack with Tejay Van Gaarderen to win a dramatic mountain stage in our hometown of Villars. We were there and enjoyed a great day riding and watching the race - read our story here.

The WorldTour stars are back again in our backyard. The 2017 Tour de Romandie features a mix of rolling terrain and mountains in idyllic landscapes. We know the region by heart and have designed an itinerary that will combine our favourite roads with the tour's course. This is your opportunity to ride your first alpine climbs of the season ahead of the peloton! Plus, you'll have VIP access to world class racing. A quick getaway to get you motivated and in shape for a great year of cycling.
