What is the Grand Départ Classic?
The Grand Depart Classic is your opportunity to cycle the first stage of the 2018 Tour de France ahead of the pros.
Taking place in the Vendée region of western France, this four day event (one day riding) is your opportunity to cycle on roads freshly paved for the pros, two weeks ahead of the Tour. Prove your prowess in the peleton and on the fundraising leader board and make a real difference to the lives of men with prostate cancer.
Fully signposted and supported, with all travel and accommodation included, you’ll be free to breeze through this coastal stage and enjoy some spectacular views of the Atlantic.
