Inauguration of the Col du Portet

8th JULY 2018

Step up to the challenge!

The last eight kilometres of the Col du Portet road, previously difficult to negotiate, will be finalized in early July to allow the unprecedented arrival of the Tour de France on the 25th July 2018.

You will be able to climb the entire pass, starting from Vignec roundabout, during the route’s inauguration day on the 8th July 2018!

Be the first, before the champions, to take up the challenge!

A dossard and a goodie bag will be given to the first 1000 participants to register. They will be distributed at the Vignec roundabout at 09.00.

This pass will allow you to freely access the Col du Portet road from Espiaube from 09:00 to 19:00 on this inaugural day. The Col route will be closed to all other traffic all day.

A weekend for cycling enthusiasts

The evening before, on Saturday 7th July, you can enjoy the many activities dedicated to cycling and mountain biking.

In addition, during this weekend Saint Lary welcomes manufacturers of craft beers from the French and Spanish mountains for a beer festival with a mountain twist.
