People of the forum,
I'm looking into insurance for me on this year's Etape, particularly third party liability and personal accident cover.
Does anyone have any experience or advice on obtaining insurance for participating in a cycling event abroad that they could please share?
I'm riding the Etape this July and my friends family are planning a mid-ride viewing point (and musette hand-out) a the top of the Tourmalet. They're not really cyclists so tapping it out to the top isn't an option. The road is also closed
How else can they get up? Do the ski lifts still operate in the summer? are there other roads up to the summit?
Any help gratefully received
As registration opened yesterday for the 2012 Etape Du Tour, I was wondering if there was a lot of interest out there in forum-land to sign-up?
For 2012 Etape I've signed up to do both Acte 1 and Acte 2 (gulp!) so lots of training motivation already.
The cunning plan this year is to offload a bike's worth of weight in my build up as Alpe D'Huez this year was a struggle in the heat, and I'd like to be a bit more Contador than Cavendish climbing those 'lumps'.
For any of you who haven't done it before, its a great experience in beautiful surroundings and i thoroughly recommend it
Hi. Sorry to use the forums for this, but Rapha produced special edition Etape jerseys for both Acte 1 and 2. These were obviously propular as they have sold out of XL sizes for Acte 1 (no surprise plenty of smalls left!). Does anyone know how I might get hold of a jersey as I want to show off cycling around Surrey! Cheers.

Right. You all know the story. Training for Etape, twatted off my bike by a twat in a twatmobile. Can't do it anymore.
Anyone still looking for a place to stay for a week in a nice private let studio flat just next to the finish line in Alpe d'Huez? Very reasonable rate and nice place to stay.... Also have a spare entry going.
Get in touch if so and I'll put you in touch with the owner and hopefullY get my deposit back ;(
I'm due to take part in the Etape du Tour 2011 on the 11th July (ie the Alpe d'huez one). I got my place independently and haven't thought about accommodation yet. Does anyone have any good advice on accommodation options in Modane? The cheaper the better and I'm happy to camp!
Also I've not been sent anything by the organisers, is that normal?
