A monumental trip to ride the routes of six Spring Classics in seven days. Tackle the Tour of Flanders, Gent-Wevelgem, Paris-Roubaix, Amstel Gold, Flèche Wallonne and Liège-Bastogne-Liège – some of the most historic events in cycling, where the legends of cycling’s true northern hard men are made.

The glorious southern Alps mix classic heavyweight climbs with tiny, undiscovered roads. The Italian side, in particular, will leave a strong impression, and be a trip into the unknown even for experienced Alps veterans.

Riding its dramatic hairpin bends is an immensely inspiring and historically enriching experience for any road cyclist, and we invite you to join us and conquer the mountain.
