Since re-igniting our Sponsorship of the The Tour De France in 2012, this year sees le coq sportif become the official partner of l’Étape du Tour. Creating identical conditions to those of the Tour de France, pushed us to gather a team of 10 riders from all over Europe which will start this mythical race after four training sessions with an exceptional coach.
The training session of the Spanish le coq sportif team started last Sunday, which included former professional cyclist Pedro Delgado. He used the opportunity to dispense some advice to the team, focusing on the rise of the Col du Tourmalet
They left early in the morning from Garigga in the direction of Vallès to discover the outstanding landscapes of the region with the nature reserve of Saint Miquel del Fai and Sant Llorenç del Munt i l’Obac.
The riders enjoyed the moment thanks to the remarkable views and the memorable team atmosphere.
The trip ended with a well-deserved meal to recharge batteries after 3 hours of effort with 87km and 2500m of inclined road.
