Video: Riding the Etape du Tour? Jaguar/Sky and Rapha show you how
Practical advice and luscious scenery
The Etape du Tour, that hallowed uber-sportive that annually follows the route of a gruelling stage of the Tour de france, takes place on July 7 this year. Rapha and the combination of Team Sky and Jaguar have produced videos to help guide you through this year’s 130km route from Annecy to Annecy-Semhoz.
In the Jaguar/Sky video, you’re offered advice on technique and riding style by Team Sky rider CJ Sutton and Dario Cioni, one of the performance management team. In addition, Head of Nutrition Nigel Mitchell shares vital tips on what to eat and drink before, during, and after the stage. Unfortunately, they don’t offer to send you your own Jaguar Sportbrake as a support vehicle.
More lyrically, the Rapha video showcases the scenery of the Haute Savois, and the Tour de France history and prospects of the route’s six categorised climbs.
