Villard de Lans has reached out to GFNY in pursuit of hosting the GFNY Europe Championship” says GFNY CEO Uli Fluhme.

“From the first contact, it has been an absolute pleasure to work with their team. It’s clear that they love their town and know how to host large sporting events, including no less than the two of the three largest: the Olympic Games and the Tour de France.”

Race week activities take place at Le Balcon de Villards. On Sunday, riders will take on curvy and fun roads with exceptional panoramas. These 19th century routes have made Villard de Lans and the Vercors famous: they are cut out of the cliffside, along imposing limestone escarpments and through green valleys. Riders tackle major climbs, including Col de la Croix Perrin, and the final climb to Villard de Lans has been featured several times at the Tour de France.
