THE ROUTE

You will start your MedioFondo in Conthey by heading toNendaz, 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. Not unlike the Colle delle Finestre, the mythical climb of the Giro, the final part of the ascent will not be asphalted, but 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…
