65 NEW CCC stages (in seven separate events) to celebrate Phil’s 65th year and his retirement from the “CCC stage”. Starting in February 2020, details of stages 1-65 will be revealed here. One stage per week (Elevation stats will often read incorrectly on the ridewithgps.com links.) Dates and booking details will be released in August 2021.

The events will cover Piemonte, Southern Alps, Northern Alps, Vercors, Provence, Ardeche, Cevennes, Haut-Languedoc, East & West Pyrenees, Andorra, Basque Country, Cantabrico, Picos d’Europa and Asturias.

For my last Big Ride in the mountains I plan to include as many of the roads as possible that I just couldn't fit in on previous CCC route designs. I want to surprise myself as well as my clients!

EVENT 1: Piemonte—Stage 1


180kms / 4300m

Passo Fittanze

The Veronese "hills" (north of Verona) in the Veneto region make a perfect place to start this journey. Less well known, full of surprises and some very tough climbs. The beautifully harsh Passo Fittanze, climbed from Avio, will be the undisputed centrepiece of this opening stage.
