  • Friday 5th July: from 10am to 9pm

🚨 No number collection in the village on Saturday as you will be racing. However, the village will be open on Saturday 6 July from 10am to 6pm to allow accompanying persons, tourists and locals to enjoy the partner/exhibitor stands and events.

To collect your race number you will have to present :

If it is not possible for you to make the trip before Saturday, we invite you to find a third party who can pick up your number on Thursday or Friday in the village with a photo / photocopy of your invitation and your identity card.

A medical certificate (or copy) must be provided in order to take part in a timed sporting event. Your medical certificate must be uploaded to your time to account and validated by the organisation before L’Étape du Tour before you can collect your race number.

  • The certificate must clearly indicate the words "non contre-indication à la pratique du cyclisme en competition” (“no contra-indications for participating in competitive cycling”). No other wording will be accepted.
  • The certificate must be dated within one year before the date of the event.

To avoid any mistakes, you can ask your doctor to complete, stamp and sign the model below.

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 2023, 2022, 2019, 2018;

2. If you hold a 2024 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 2024 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.
