Tour des stations

The world toughest D+/km one day cycling race!
Imagine a cycling enduro in the heart of the Swiss Valais, offering an exceptional sport challenge linking the region’s ski stations in a spectacular environment. The so-called Tour des Stations became a reality on 11 August 2018 consisting of three different courses following the concept of the Marmotte Granfondo Series. Choose between distances of 220km, 140km or 50km -and the corresponding altitude differences of 7,400m, 4,700m or 2,000m. The courses feature « class of its own » climbs like the mythical Croix-de-Cœur, topping out at 2,174 metres with its last six kilometers on gravel. Festivities take place from August 8 to 11!


A departure specially organized from La Tzoumaz to face the mythical Col de la Croix-de-Coeur



THE ROUTE

At the exit of the Tzoumaz station, the road winds through the mountain to the top of the Col de la Croix-de-Coeur and its 2174m, which make it the roof of this Tour des stations.
