From the Champs Elysées to the Alhambra: L'étape Granada is born

The event, which starts and ends at the Granada Conference Center, will allow cyclists to experience the Legend of the Tour de France. It will be held on October 24.


Good cycling tourism lovers have a must on October 24th. L'Étape Granada by Tour de France Presented by Lapierre is born, a test with the stamp of the famous gala round that will start and finish in the beautiful city of the Alhambra.

Granada is the second city chosen after Madrid

In this way, Granada will host the second Étape by Tour de France in history in Spain, after the successful premiere on July 24 of L'Étape Madrid by Tour de France Presented by Lapierre, in the town of Villanueva del Pardillo (Madrid). This new test will be developed entirely in the province of Granada.

L'Étape Granada by Tour de France Presented by Lapierre will feature all the animation of the Village, signs, start and finish typical of the Grande Boucle. An atmosphere that will remind us of a stage of the gala event, but without leaving Granada.In addition to pedaling through beautiful landscapes and environments full of history, participants will be able to choose between two distances -131 and 175 kilometers-, which will have a positive elevation gain of 1,987 and 2,580 meters, respectively.

Starting and finishing at the Palacio de Congresos, cyclists will pedal south until they enter the Lanjarón area, the Rules reservoir and those who opt for the long distance will reach the Costa Tropical, in the Motril marina. On the way back to Granada, the greatest difficulty will be located in the Sierra de Los Guájares, a unique natural enclave with fantastic views of the Sierra Nevada.

All ports will have their KOM (King of the Mountain) and QOM (Queen of the Mountain). Likewise, there will also be a Sprint Challenge: one kilometer on timed flat.

The essence of the Tour has come to Spain to stay. After its debut in Madrid last week, Granada will take over on October 24 to give the opportunity to experience, once again, a cycling day in the purest Tour de France style. The participants enjoyed a spectacular day in which, in addition, the girls felt especially accompanied thanks to Movistar's Women in Bike project, with exclusive spaces and services for her, an idea that they valued with a high note.Information, registration and price
