Second edition of the CycloFréjus. A cycling event organized by SFTRF (Société française du tunnel routier du Fréjus) and its Italian counterpart, SITAF, in collaboration with Pôle Performance Espoir du Sport Féminin Chambéry and GSR Alpina.

A (non-timed) cyclo rando that takes cyclists through the 12.9 km Fréjus road tunnel. While pedaling through a tunnel may seem monotonous, the experience over such a long distance is unusual and unique: the event is possible because this motorway tunnel is not yet in service.

There will be three routes starting from Valfréjus:

Petit parcours ( 52 km - 409 m D+): with a "simple" round trip between Valfréjus and Bardonecchia through the tunnel. A refreshment station is provided for participants at Bardonnecchia.

Medium course ( 60 km - 934 m D+) From Valfréjus to Bardonnechia via the Col de l'Échelle and back via Bardonnecchia and Valfréjus. Two refreshment points are provided at Bardonnechia and Col de l'Echelle.

Grand parcours ( 116 km - 1,678 m D+) offers the possibility of extending the pleasure between Bardonnechia and Montgenèvre via the Col de l'Échelle.

All participants will receive a souvenir frame plate, a meal and a cycling jersey to commemorate their passage through the Fréjus tunnel.

Although there will be no rankings, participants will be able to find out their times on different sections of the route, as well as on the rando as a whole.

If you live in Italy :
If you are taking part in one of the routes and live in Italy, the organizer will provide you (free of charge and by e-mail) with a round-trip ticket (valid only from July 10 to 11) through the Fréjus tunnel to enable you to get to the starting point with your own vehicle.

A cycling event limited to 1,000 participants.
