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 passion for road cycling started seven years ago in Mexico City, where I used to live and go out training to the mountains and volcanos surrounding town.
I then got the competition fever and discovered l’Etape series. Following my first participation in 2016, I quickly climbed to the top of the rankings. 2019 was my best year so far:
1st of category Étape Acapulco
1st of category Étape Estado de Mexico
3rd of category in Étape Mexico City
I am now based in Barcelona, spending his training time between Girona, Mallorca and the Catalan capital.
