The concept

At L'Etape by Tour de France, we believe that our customers are our best representatives... that is why we created L'Etape Social Riders program, a group of riders from all over the world.
They all registered for L'Etape du Tour and were chosen to share with you what they like about cycling, how they train and how they prepare to ride L'Etape in July.


My story with cycling comes from long time ago. I´ve been cycling since my childhood in the neighborhood, andthen cycling every day to University and on weekends with my group of friends. My first real competition was in 1987, a short triathlon. After I went to do something more challenging, so I did 4 x IronMans and some adventure races as the Elf Authentic Adventure Race, a 13-day outdoor multisport race and also some mountain bike as the multi stage ultra marathon Cape Epic.

For the last years I´ve been dedicated to amateur cycling races and cycling trips to the most iconic places around the world.
My first L´Etape du Tour was in 2006 and since then I´ve never missed one. In 2018 I did the Alpes Haute Route.
Cycling is my passion, it allows me to relax, train my resilience and also spend time with friends.
Being a nutritionist, sport gave me the ability to combine science with the needs of an athlete.
