We’ll get cleaned up and changed before entering the Izoard VIP venue. Our VIP area is located close to the finish line and has air-conditioning, private restrooms, food, drinks, and TVs to follow the action. This is a great way to watch the race until the racers pass right in front of you on the way to the finish line!

Bring your cameras…this is a great opportunity to get pictures of your favorite riders as you will be able to walk among the team buses and see riders up close.
After grabbing a light lunch, we will be starting our ride back up the world famous Alpe d’Huez climb. It is 64 kilometers back to our hotel with an elevation gain of 1,500 meters. The feeling of accomplishment is amazing after conquering this iconic, 21 switchback climb.

Relais Etape is a hospitality tent set up along the course. The caravan throws out fun prizes before the racers arrive to build an electric atmosphere. The racers and their entourage (team cars, motorcycles, media, sponsors, etc.) will pass live in front of us. We will be served an excellent, 4-course lunch with wine and other beverages. Champagne will be served at the end to toast the stage winner. Each Relais Etape guest will receive a gift from le Tour.
