THE ROUTE

From the Châble, you will attack your Mediofondo directly with the climb of the Col du Lein. After 15km, you will dive into the Rhone Valley. After a short portion of plain, you will go up towards Nendaz, where you will be able to enjoy a panoramic route in the countryside in the direction of the authentic village of Isérables, before turning off to Tzoumaz, which is part of the 4 Vallées. At the exit of the station, the road will start twisting and turning up the mountains with a dozen of hairpins which will take you to the top of the Col de la Croix-de-Cœur at 2174 metres, which is the roof of the Tour des Stations. It will give you an exceptional view of the Val de Bagnes. A final, short descent will take you to the heart of the Verbier station. Following in the footsteps of Alberto Contador in the 2009 Tour de France, you will finally triumph after one of the most beautiful cyclo-sportives of the upcoming season…
