Cover for the L’Etape du Tour 2020
L’Etape du Tour is on the 5th July 2020 and the route will take the riders over the same course of the Tour de France 2020.
L’Etape du Tour gives amateur cyclists a chance to ride a stage of the Tour de France, just days after the pros. This year features an iconic 177km route from Nice, looping into the Alpes-Maritimes, finishing on the Promenade de Anglais. Riders will climb 3,570m across the Col de la Colmiane, the Col du Turini and finally the epic Col d’Eze.
Please select Cycle Racing / Sportives (not professional)
You can purchase a policy for the entire trip or just for the L’Etape du Tour day (5th July 2020). If you take a policy for the day, please make sure you only select Adventures Part A.

Major Benefits of Travel Insurance
Medical cover up to £10,000,000. You really don’t need this much but it’s good to have it. If you crash and get hurt, you get ill before, after or during the race you are covered for Medical costs. Make sure anyway that you have an European Health Insurance Card (EHIC) too.
Search and Rescue cover to £50,000, again unlikely but if you do get lost and need to be rescued if you are injured then this is good cover and unusual for an Insurer to provide it.
