The Étape is an annual race, organised by the same people responsible for the Tour de France, and allows amateur riders to tackle a mountain stage of the great race under tournament conditions. This year the race recreates stage 20 of the 2013 Tour de France, finishing at the ski station of Annecy-Semnoz at an altitude of 1,655m. The 130km route takes in 5 peaks over 900m, including the climb of the 1,142m Col des Prés and the 1,463m Mont Revard.
