Every year, L’Étape du Tour de France welcomes several thousand cyclists. The starts are managed using “starting areas” so that everyone can enjoy a unique experience in smooth conditions.

By placing all the participants according to their level of fitness, we will limit the number of riders who overtake others and considerably reduce the risk of bottlenecks on the approach to the first difficulties on the route.

Depending on your experience on L’Étape du Tour de France and your ability, you will be assigned a starting area number: the lower the starting area number, the earlier your start will take place.

Here are the criteria used to allocate the various starting areas:

1. Real time ranking in L’Étape du Tour de France in 2022, 2019, 2018, 2017;

2. If you hold a 2023 FFC licence, your FFC cyclosport ranking will also be taken into consideration. Find information about this ranking here (in french).

3. The time you are aiming for on the 2023 Étape du Tour de France.

4. If you have taken part in a leading cycling event, we will also take this data into consideration when allocating your final starting area number.
