Why this event?

A difficult but fascinating challenge

A 3-day event including the greatest elevation gain in the whole 2021 calendar, the Haute Route Crans-Montana will challenge you on cols that whilst little known are true gems offering incredible views. During the two classic stages in the heart of the Valais Central, you will cycle through vineyards, traditional villages and gorges before attacking the winding ascents of Barrage de la Grande Dixence and Col du Sanetsch. On the last day, you will set off from the time trial ramp in Sierre, Switzerland's sunniest city, to face the ascent of the Col de Crans-Montana.
