The route for Cykelnerven 2024 will be released within a few weeks of the Tour de France 2024 route announcement. This usually comes out in late October, so we aim to reveal our route by the end of November. Don't wait though, whichever mountains they pick you'll get to ride them just before the pros!
The 2023 event was based on stages 14, 15, 16 and 17 of the Tour de France 2023. The riders took on eight mountains, including the likes of Col de la Ramaz and Cormet de Roselend, alongside legendary climbs like Col de la Loze. There were also 'bonus' mountains for the strongest riders.
Starting in Les Gets, the riders ended with a big celebration in Bough St. Maurice after completing over 333km and 9.2km of climbing (more for those who took on the extra climbs).
As a Cykelnerven-rider you will face the challenging climbs of the 2024 Tour de France. You will need the skills and fitness to ride these mountains and while riding around 100km per day.
