Tour de l'avenir


The "Tour de l'Avenir" is a cycling race that was created and is still supported by the Tour de France. It's a true preparation race that reveals the next generation of international cycling champions. As a proof: today's best French racing cyclists were also the best when they took part in the Tour de l'Avenir a few years back!


The Tour de l'Avenir is the final of the Nations Cup, and gathers together the 20 best teams of the competition.

A perfect opportunity for the best under 23 racing cyclists worldwide to show their skills over the 8 days of the race.
