Unlike the concept of "cycling lifestyle" advocated by the L’Etape Zhuji held in May this year, L’Etape Chengjiang, with the help of the undulating plateau terrain, has become the most challenging stage in the L’Etape China Series so far. Adhering to creating the most authentic road bicycle racing atmosphere and creating the most professional global brand racing events, L’Etape Chengjiang provides more refined racing services for cyclists and fans with different needs and a better racing experience. Through the professional design of Tour de France experts, L’Etape Chengjiang strive to build the closed "most difficult track": the 115 km plateau lake track which is full of challenges, spanning from the lowest elevation of 1416 meters to the highest elevation of 2123 meters, and the total elevation climbing of more than 2200 meters, with a total length of 27.9 kilometers. Cyclists need to overcome altitude response, combat climate change and complete a practice of "carrying the soul by bicycle". Only the real strong can overcome themselves and complete the challenge.


The early bird registration will be officially launched on September 17. There are two groups: the 115 km the Race (registration limit: 1500 people) and the 29 km the Ride (registration limit: 500 people). The early bird registration fees are 318 yuan and 80 yuan respectively.

In addition to reflecting the passion of cycling competition, in order to lead the riders to experience a mysterious journey, the race track is different from the routine round-the-lake cycling route. Combining with the characteristics of Plateau and mountain areas, the race panorama integrates the cultural and historical features of Chengjiang River and the natural scenery of lakes, showing the beautiful scenery of Fuxian Lake in an all-round way. The starting point is Zhuyuan Road, Renmin West Road, Chengjiang County. It passes through Xianhu Road, Chengchuan Line, Chenghua Line, Xincun Road, Haikou Town and Dianhai Line, and finally returns to Chengjiang City. Riders enter the Fuxian Lake Scenic Area and pass the Moon Bay Wetland Park, which resembles the "Maldives" coconut tree shadow beach, to the Yuxi Xianhu Time Trail, the quiet Haikou Xianhu Bay Scenic Area and the Cherry Valley of the underwater ancient city's secret place, which is the most beautiful trail to ride. At 2 certified secondary slopes of the Tour de France, riders will feel the rigorous challenge after muscle stiffness, experience the double test of technology and psychology, and ride with the Tour de France champion to challenge the limit. More noteworthy is that the top 10% of the L’Etape Chengjiang will win the chance to qualify for the L’Etape Championship, which is also the only channel for domestic riders to the L’Etape Championship.
