Haute Route Dolomites
We are excited to announce our program for the 2017 Haute Route Dolomites Cyclosportive!
Beginning on September 2nd in Innsbruck, Austria, riders will begin a seven-day cycling odyssey over some of the most challenging passes and through the stunning scenery of the majestic Dolomites before arriving into sunny Venice! As an "Official Tour Operator" for the Haute Route Series, we feel that the 2017 Dolomites route offers the best cycling, scenery, and cuisine to insure a truly memorable experience. This is the closest a cyclist can get to riding an European Grand Tour and there is no better setting in which to experience the camaraderie, challenge, and exhilaration than in the Dolomites!
During the course of the week, cyclists will ride 503 miles (812 km) over 7 consecutive timed stages that will feature more than 20,000 meters of climbing over 15 celebrated cols! With a limited field of only 500 riders, guests can look forward to a unique atmosphere of competition and camaraderie. Each day, rider classifications and overall times are posted along with leader jersey presentations, team prizes, and full professional on-road support from Mavic.
At Velo Echappe', our goal is to provide you with the very best Haute Route experience! To achieve that, you can look forward to luxury hotels, private mechanics, private masseuses, personalized services at the feed zones, all breakfasts and dinners, route guidance and assistance, and the caring concern of a staff dedicated to making your dreams come true!
