Then it’s back to new territory in the States with the Haute Route Utah (September 14-16), before the calendar finale around the famous Mont Ventoux between October 5-7.
Enter as a duo
Alongside the five new events, organisers OC Sport have announced that entrants can enter as a solo rider, as before, or tackle the events as a duo, introducing an element of collective team riding to the event.
Riders registering as a duo will not be included in the individual standings and the rankings will be established based on the time of the second member to cross the finish line every day.
Entries for the Mavic Hate Route Rockies and Haute Route Alpe d’Huez are now open via the Haute Route website, with the eight other confirmed events all opening for registration on Thursday October 19.
