The Stages

Stage 1

Amonines

135kms / 2140m

Main climbs:
Nothing too tough!

A gentle ride to the Mur d’Huy ( and back) to watch both the men and the women race over this legendary Wall. Four hours of race-watching in a location hard to beat anywhere for being close to the action.

Stage 2

Amonines

236kms / 4,400m

Main climbs:
Fleche Wallonne

“Fleche Wallonne ++ ( The Seven Walls) ”. An ‘improved’ version of this Classic race, including two ascents of the Mur and five other lesser-known local ‘walls’ just as hard ( if not harder!)

Stage 3

Amonines

177kms / 3,600m

Main climbs:
La Roche en Ardenne

"A favourite combination of the best roads I train on, and love, all winter and spring to offer a slightly gentler day between the two Giant Stages :)" Phil D

Stage 4

Amonines

254kms / 5,800m.

Main climbs:
“L-B-L+++”.

All the L-B-L climbs and much, much more make this route a true “CCC Classic”. Riding alongside the official LBL sportive event at times before turning off for even higher roads! E-P-I-C!

Stage 5

Amonines

89kms / 1250m

A leg-loosener ride over to watch the race roadside at La Redoute ( big screen).

Stage 6

Amonines

203kms / 2,900m

Main climbs:
"Eiffel Towers"

The first of three superbly panoramic stages. This one goes through the Hautes Fagnes region of Belgium and then into Germany via the Eiffel wilderness. The highest and wildest part of Belgium. Get ready to be surprised!

Stage 7

Amonines to Vianden.

232kms / 4,600m

Main climbs:
“Luxembourg Luxury part 1”.

Smooth roads, posh tarmac, Alpinesque climbs & descents. The quality of the riding in this country is a beautifully well-kept secret! We stay overnight in Vianden, a fabulous medieval town dominated by a formidable castle.

Stage 8

Vianden to Amonines

223kms / 4,400m

Main climbs:
“Luxembourg Luxury part 2”.

More of the same. Two days allow us to cover almost all of the best climbs and descents of this beautiful country, before we head back into “dirty” Belgium via Bastogne to end with a few “real” roads!!
