Race Services 4


If you want to perform to the very best of your abilities at the Haute Route, you have come to the right place!

We are offering comprehensive Race Services during all the Haute Route events in Europe in 2017, 7-day and 3-day.

Our Race Services provide you with the extra level of support routinely enjoyed by the professionals in competition. They include three different components:

  1. The Directeur Sportif package
  2. The Super-Domestique package
  3. The Recovery Massage/Physiotherapy package

Please note that we can only support a very limited number of people with these packages, so they are offered on a first-come, first-served basis.

Our clients tell us they gained between 10 and 50 places thanks to our support. Read the testimonials from the past 3 years.

*Limitations

The Haute Route is an amateur race, subject to its own rules and regulations. These mean that we cannot provide an identical service to what you see on the Tour de France, where the riders simply raise their arm to be resupplied on the road by their following car. The rules state that all non-emergency assistance must be provided within 100m of an official feed-zone.

In practice, during the 2015 race we supported our riders at two separate feed-zones during each stage.

 

Accommodation

PrintIn order to focus fully on the cycling, Alpine Cols does not get involved in the accommodation and logistics. If you are looking for something other than the organiser’s own packages, we  recommend Two Wheel Tours. They have been taking people to the Haute Route since the first edition and always get great feedback for the quality of their service. Be quick though, they sell out a year in advance!

      Horvat, I regret that for reasons of capacity we can’t sell the massage package separately, but only as an addition to our Directeur sportif package. Sorry about this.
