After 16 weeks and four distinct phases of intense training, we’re finally here: the 2019 Zwift L’Etape du Tour de France.
You climbed. You raced. You free rode. You’ve come out the other side a fitter, faster, stronger version of yourself. Ready to put the hammer down. Ready to fly across every road in Watopia. Just like the real-life L’Etape du Tour de France, our event will test your endurance. You’ll cover nearly the same distance with half the climbing as the IRL event. Be prepared for a long day in the saddle. It all goes down on July 21st.
This event will be the first chance to ride with hundreds of others on the biggest and toughest route in Zwift. The Über Pretzel.

IS THIS A RACE
Yes and no. Some people will be looking to test themselves after 16 weeks of solid training, others are just trying to make it across the finish line, to say they've ridden the toughest route on Zwift and bag the exclusive in-game kit to prove it. The only thing for sure is that it’ll be challenging for everyone. Ride smart. Save some watts on the flats by riding in a peloton. Then push it on the hills.
