The L’Etape Thailand by Le Tour de France landmark cycling event is scheduled to take place in Phang-nga from 19-21 October 2018 with the actual race day on 21 October.
Being held in Southeast Asia for the first time ever, the L’Etape Thailand by Le Tour de France will be held on fully closed roads and under professional race conditions in the spectacular scenery of Phang-nga province in southern Thailand.
The L’Etape Thailand by Le Tour de France is another milestone in the promotion of Thailand as a major sporting events hub of the world. At the same time, it offers yet another perspective for cyclists and spectators to experience the kingdom – just as the Tourism Authority of Thailand’s (TAT) Amazing Thailand ‘Open to the New Shades’ communication concept encourages visitors to do.
The L’Etape Thailand by Le Tour de France will test cyclists stamina and determination with a choice of two routes, both of which start at Khao Lak and finish at Ta Kua Pa. These are the 140 km Race and the 70 km Ride.
Registration for L’Etape Thailand by Le Tour de France begins from 8 June 2018 and there is a variety of registration options to choose from. Cyclists must be at least 15 years of age to participate in the 70 km Ride and at least 18 for the 140 km Race. Individual cyclists in the 140 km Race will be competing for official Tour de France jerseys.
