About the event

Human Race and ASO bring you Dragon Ride L’Etape Wales by Le Tour de France! As one of the most iconic sportives in the UK (returning for its 15th year in 2018), Dragon Ride has been selected by ASO as the perfect representation of the world’s most famous cycle event, and will offer the same inspiring Tour de France riding experience to UK cyclists.

The South Wales event will once again start from the picturesque Margam Park, Port Talbot, having moved there successfully in 2012. 2014 saw the introduction of a mammoth Dragon Devil distance, then in 2015 a 3 day Tour was created with the Dragon Ride L’Etape Wales as the finale. Both will once again be part of the offering for 2018.

“Following the extraordinary reception Le Tour de France riders enjoyed in the United Kingdom over the last few years, it is a true honour to bring Le Tour de France’s spirit to Wales. This spirit of course remains in the passion for cycling and Le Tour de France itself but it is also linked to an ideal sportive course and Wales’ incredible nature and landscapes. The Dragon Ride L’Etape Wales by Le Tour de France has a route reminiscent of one of Le Tour de France’s most magnificent stages.” – Christian Prudhomme, General Director of le Tour de France
