The 2020 French national cyclosportive season gets underway in Southern France on April 12 in the village of Saint Rémy de Provence with first event of the Challenge Cyclo’Tour Rotor, a season long 7 race gran fondo series over some of the most beautiful cycling terrain in the world.


With the backdrop of the Massif des Alpilles, Raid des Alpilles Cyclosportive will start and finish in the wonderful host city of Saint Rémy de Provence.

On a lumpy 120km gran fondo course, participants will race past the spectacular medieval village of Les Baux, set atop a rocky outcrop overlooking plains to the south.  With five short steep climbs throughout the course, rider’s early season form will surely be tested.


The Challenge Cyclo’Tour competition continues three weeks later at Lozérienne Cyclo, followed by Granite Mt Lozère, Les Copains Cyfac, Trilogie de Maurienne, Chambérienne Cycletyres and the final event, AlpinBike Lac d’Annecy, in August.
