Places for the 2018 Dragon Ride L'Etape Wales almost sold out

Spaces for the Dragon Ride L'Etape Wales are flying off the shelves quicker than kids toys at Christmas with entries to the various sportives almost sold out.

The multi-distance challenge, part of the L'Etape UK by Le Tour de France series, will be returning for its 15th year in 2018 and take riders on its usual scenic route through the Brecon Beacon National Park.

Taking place from the 8th to the 10th of June, the event will offer four distances ranging from 100km to a mighty 305km as well as a three day tour.

The longest route, entitled the Dragon Devil, will take on five major climbs throughout the day with ascents of the Devil's Staircase and Black Mountain.

For the three-day event, riders will tackle 100km routes on the Friday and Saturday before choosing their distance on the Sunday.

Director of the Tour de France Christian Prudhomme remarked at Wales being a perfect location for such event also referring to the spirit in which the UK has embraced the Tour.

'This spirit of course remains in the passion for cycling and Le Tour de France itself but it is also linked to an ideal sportive course and Wales’ incredible nature and landscapes.'

'The Dragon Ride L’Etape Wales by Le Tour de France has a route reminiscent of one of Le Tour de France’s most magnificent stages.'

Standard entry ranges from £47.50 for the 100km route to £130 for the three day Dragon Tour. Premium entry options are also available for all events.
