With Paris-Nice, you are twice a winner. In terms of cycling, you follow the route of one of the Hexagon’s most famous races - appropriately named the Course au Soleil, which was inaugurated in 1933 and has witnessed the victories of great champions, such as Contador, Jalabert, Indurain, Merckx and Anquetil. In terms of geography, wonderful back roads take you through the mythic regions of Auvergne, the Rhône-Alpes, Provence, the Alps and the Côte d’Azur, and in turn across the Aubrac Plateau, Mont Ventoux, the Verdon Gorge and the Col d’Èze. What a beautiful challenge!
