To mark the 44th anniversary of the opening of the Fréjus tunnel linking France and Italy, SFTRF and SITAF are offering a unique experience: a cyclorando through the 12.9 km of the new Fréjus tunnel.

Description

Second edition of the CycloFréjus. A cycling event organized by SFTRF (Société française du tunnel routier du Fréjus) and its Italian counterpart, SITAF, in collaboration with Pôle Performance Espoir du Sport Féminin Chambéry and GSR Alpina.

A (non-timed) cyclo rando that takes cyclists through the 12.9 km Fréjus road tunnel. While pedaling through a tunnel may seem monotonous, the experience over such a long distance is unusual and unique: the event is possible because this motorway tunnel is not yet in service.

Three routes will be available from Valfréjus :

Short route ( 52 km - 409 m D+): with a "simple" round trip between Valfréjus and Bardonecchia through the tunnel. A refreshment station is provided in Bardonnecchia.

Medium route ( 60 km - 934 m D+) From Valfréjus to Bardonnechia via the Col de l'Echelle and back via Bardonnecchia and Valfréjus. Two refreshment points are provided at Bardonnecchia and Col de l'Echelle.

Grand parcours ( 116 km - 1,678 m D+) offers the possibility of extending the pleasure of the ride between Bardonnechia and the Col du Montgenèvre via the Col de l'Échelle.

All participants will receive a souvenir frame plate, a meal and a cycling jersey to commemorate their passage through the Fréjus tunnel.

Although there will be no rankings, participants will be able to see their times on different segments of the route, as well as over the whole rando.
