Social Riders

Antonio Garnero

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.


I’m a former professional cyclist from Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, specialized in hill climbs. I raced the most important national competitions while leading national teams and also participated in some of the most important international competitions such as the UCI World Championships in Richmond, Virginia, where I was the leader of the Brazilian national squad. In 2017, after retiring professionally, I picked up my passion for amateur racing. In that year, I raced in France and won the GF Mont Ventoux Baumes de Venise.
I now ride purely for passion and I am dedicated to racing the world’s most beautiful cycling events, having tons of fun along the way and meeting great people. I believe that cycling is the most amazing sport to make everlasting friendships and have unforgettable experiences.
