Haute Route Alps 2015

22nd to 30th August 2015

We are pleased to confirm that we are yet again UK travel partners for the top cycling event, the 2015 Haute Route Alps, which will take place from the 23rd until the 29th of August 2015.

The 2015 courses for the Haute Route Pyrenees, Haute Route Alps and Haute Route Dolomites will be announced on October 15th 2014. The format remains the same on each event: 7 consecutive timed stages (including one ‘Marathon Stage’ and one individual time-trial), maximum number of legendary cols, minimal flat sections, mountain top finishes where possible, maximum length timed sections, individual timing and all climbs timed.

Why book with Sports Tours International?
We have been involved with the Haute Route from the very beginning. We know how to support our athletes during this physically and mentally demanding event.
  • If you book now we can offer you your entry for £1100
  • You will know in advance what hotels you are staying at. All hotels are in ideal locations and of excellent standard.
  • Our experienced reps and pro mechanic will be on hand throughout the event to support you and we will go to all race briefings for you and give you personal daily briefings so you can stay at the hotel to recover.
  • We transport your luggage daily and we will transport you and your bike to and from the finish and start if required
  • We provide daily private feed and support stops en route
  • We provide airport transfers and transport for non-riding partners who book through us

Even if you already have your entry, we can offer you our support package so you can fully focus on the job at hand. Our service includes airport transfers, luggage transport, mechanic services, in-resort transfers form stage starts and finishes and conveniently located hotels of excellent standard with evening meals included.

The concept of the Haute Route Alps, Haute Route Pyrenees and Haute Route Dolomites remains the same: 7 consecutive timed stages (including one ‘Marathon Stage’ and one individual time-trial), maximum number of legendary cols, minimal flat sections, mountain top finishes where possible, maximum length timed sections, individual timing and all climbs timed.

All three events will be held back-to-back next year, offering a few hardcore riders the tantalizing prospect of a Triple Crown challenge and, at the same time, offer up the opportunity to hundreds of amateur riders the chance to traverse either the iconic cols of the Alps, Pyrenees or Dolomites-Swiss Alps.
