FulGaz is proud to be partnering with L’Etape Australia to help deliver and host the first edition of the Virtual L’Etape Australia by Tour de France. 

The virtual version of L’Etape Australia will consist of three stages, taking place across three weekends in November and featuring some of the most iconic climbs Australia has to offer: Berry Mountain, Col de Fitzroy and very soon infamous Saddle Mountain. The event will provide riders with a taste of Tour de France riding in their own living rooms. 

FulGaz founder and CEO Mike Clucas is thrilled by the partnership. “As a lifelong fan of the Tour de France, I’m really excited to be involved with L’Etape Australia and help bring events of this level to Australia, and the rest of the world, via FulGaz.”

Florent Malezieux, Head of Sport at Lateral Events said “I am really excited to partner with Fulgaz to provide Australian riders with a unique opportunity to challenge themselves on the L’Étape route while respecting the current health orders. The Tour de France and L’Étape Australia have always been at the forefront of cycling innovation and we are proud to be the first in Australia to offer a true virtual cycling event”.
