Race Categories


It's a race, a personal challenge, an adventure and a series of some of the nicest days you've ever had out on your bike. The Haute Route isn't one thing. And when you sign up to an event to ride solo, it's whatever you want it to be.

Race categories solo format

Every solo rider will appear in the General Classification, so whether you're vying for the podium, trying to beat a friend or triumphantly make it to that famous finish line, your efforts will be on the record.

An official prize ceremony will take place at the end of each day to celebrate the biggest stars of each stage.

All riders will be ranked in the following categories:

  • Solo Men
  • Solo Women
  • Men's Team
  • Women's Team
  • Mixed Team (comprising at least one woman and one man)

Solo riders will also be ranked in the following age categories:

  • 18-29
  • 30-39
  • 40-49
  • 50-59
  • 60+


There's endless reasons why riding as a team is a game changer for many riders. From startline banter, to that unrivalled inspiration to push harder when it matters most, riding takes on a new meaning when your team depends on you and you on them.

Replacing the Duo format at all events this year, this new category has teams made up of 4-6 members, with men's, women's and mixed groups. The aim of the game: Each team will make their own strategy to get three of their riders to the finish line as fast as possible.

Race categories teams format

Each Team category (Women's, Men's and Mixed) will be up for an award at the official Haute Route prize ceremony at every event.

The ranking for Women's and Men's Teams will be based by cumulating the times of the three fastest members.

The ranking for Mixed teams will also be established using the times of the three best members, but must include the times from at least one woman and one man on each stage.

Best of all, all riders who make up the teams will also be included in the individual rankings.
