Le Tour des Stations

August 11 2018
Martigny, Switzerland

Imagine a cycling in the heart of the Swiss Valais, offering an exceptional Gran Fondo challenge linking the region’s ski stations in a spectacular environment.

The so-called Tour des Stations becomes reality on August 11th 2018 consisting of three different courses following the concept of the Look Marmotte Granfondo Series. Choose between distances of 220km, 130km or 50km and the corresponding altitude differences of 7,400m, 4,500m or 2,200m. The courses feature hors categorie climbs like themythical Croix-de-Cœur, topping out at 2,174 metres with the last six kilometres on gravel.

In co-operation with the stations of Verbier, Crans-Montana, Nendaz, Ovronnaz, Anzère, Vercorin, Nax, Saint-Martin, Hérémence, Les Collons, Veysonnaz, La Tzoumaz, Conthey and Martigny, the Tour des Stations crosses through the enchanting countryside of the Valais region, its grapevines, picturesque nature, authentic villages and internationally renowned ski stations.

The Tour des Stations has the ambition to become the greatest Swiss Gran Fondo, akin to the Marmottes Alpes in France and the Dolomites Marathon in Italy. Let’s hit the road !
