Race Info

You can view and download the 2019 Haute Route Rules & Regulations here (the rest of the documents will be available soon)

The Haute Route full events have an individual ranking and a Duo ranking. Riders registering as a Duo will not be included in the individual standings; Duo teams will be ranked in a separate classification (Male Duo, Female Duo, Mixed Duo). The Duo rankings will be established based on the time of the second member of each Duo team to cross the finish line every day.

Riders must carry with them their normal ID required when crossing country borders during the relevant stages (passport, visa, etc.) We will inform you at the briefing before each stage if you need to have it with you.

We ask participants of the Haute Route 2019 to respect the prohibition of doping and the provisions concerning anti-­doping controls, as they result from laws and regulations in force, in particular Articles L.230-1 and following of the French Code of Sport. Anti-­doping controls can be carried out at any time without prior notice by licensed authorities.

We will have 4 Mavic support vehicles that will follow the course (1 van and 3 cars) to assist with mechanical problems.
Puncture repair is not included in this so you will need to bring spare tubes and tools.

The start times can be between 7.00-8.00am, they are different for each stage. The exception is on Time Trial day when start times can be later e.g. starting from 9am, the slowest riders in the overall results go first, and fastest go last so your start time depends on your ranking the day before the Time Trial.
