Tour de France LIVE Viewing: Stage 7
VIP access to the Stage Finish in Payolle
We’ve crafted a stunning route to get to our Official VIP Finish Line Hospitality Area in Payolle. On the way there, we’ll climb Pla d’Adet and Col d’Aspin, and on the way home, we’ll go over the beautiful Hourquette d’Anzican. This is classic Tour de France terrain!
Tour de France LIVE Viewing: Stage 8
Private Viewing on the Col de Val Louron-Azet
Before climbing up to our Private Race Viewing Tents on the mountainside of Col de Val Louron-Azet, we’ll warm up our legs on the enchanting Cap de Long climb. Now you’ve earned a race day afternoon! Enjoy the wild Tour de France scene from the comfort of our tents. Food, drinks, and satellite TV race coverage will keep you entertained as we wait for the peloton to approach.
The CAT 1 Col du Peyresourde has been a staple in the Tour de France since 1910. Today is your turn! We’ll climb both sides of this Tour de France giant. Enjoy the lush green scenery and forgiving hairpins. To get back to our quaint village, we have to ascend Col de Val Louron-Azet, too!
The previous days have prepared you for today’s challenge. Today we climb the highest paved road in the Pyrenees, the legendary Col du Tourmalet. No climb has been featured more in the Tour de France. Combined with the Hourquette d’Ancizan on the way there and the Col d’Aspin on the way home and you have a huge day on the bike. The photo opportunity at the top of Tourmalet is a well-earned reward.
Port de Bales and Peyresourde
Today’s route is quintessential Pyrenees and a perfect way to cap our King of the Mountains Challenge. The 19 km Port de Bales is one of the toughest, and most rewarding climbs of the week. Enjoy the view at the summit of the endless, rolling green mountains. On the way home, we’ll ascend the other side of Peyresourde!
Unfortunately, our Tour de France experience must come to an end.
