Our Race Difference:
RACE SUPPORT & EXPERTISE:
Each of our race trips has a minimum of two First Class Guides. If a group size gets above 20 persons, you will have additional guides to ensure that you always enjoy superior customer service. You never ride alone. We support you both on and off the bike. We always have one guide in our support vehicle and the other cycling alongside you. Our race trip guides have the experience and mechanical skills necessary to keep you riding comfortably at your best in all conditions. They bring years of experience managing the trip logistics of pro race itineraries and stage viewings. They’ll fill up your water bottles, change your tire, shuttle you over the hill, provide you with local insight and make sure everyone is on the right track. Off the bike, your guides are at your service to help you with anything you need—massage appointments, wine suggestions, or finding that special local treat you’re craving.
PRO LEVEL EQUIPMENT:
When it comes to bikes, we set the standard. Included in the price of your trip is the choice to ride one of our unprecedented premium quality Trek bicycles. We have one of the largest selections of bike styles, frame sizes and equipment to ensure that your bike is perfectly fitted to you.
- The use of the brand new Trek Domane SL 7 carbon road bike
- Available Trek Emonda SLR bike upgrade and Aeolus carbon wheel upgrade
- The use of a Garmin Touring Plus while on your trip
- Complimentary Trek Travel merchandise, Trek-Segafredo team kit, and customized Road ID (included on race access trips)
- Bike computer, a map case, and stocked seat pack for use during your trip
- Two Trek Travel water bottles for you to keep
- Choice of multiple stem lengths, seat posts, saddles, and helmets for a custom fit
UNRIVALED PRO RIDER ACCESS:
Guests will enjoy at least one pro rider access opportunity per race access trip, including but not limited to the following types of events: exclusive rider Q&A sessions, team bus tours, guided visits with team mechanics, social hours with riders and staff.
SIGNATURE RACE VIEWINGS & ACCESS:
We don’t want you to miss anything. After all, it’s all a part of being exposed to the races and the regions. All of the VIP race access, citizens’ ride entry fees (as applicable), and cultural events that are mentioned in your itinerary are covered in the cost of your trip. Race trip itineraries include at least two live race viewings, sometimes including race-organized VIP stage start or finish access. Guests enjoy prime stage viewing locations complete with front row seating, catered lunches, live TV broadcasts, and pro rider appearances (whenever possible).
SIGNATURE ACCOMMODATIONS & MEALS:
Our race trip designer selects hotels with the best locations to get you up close access to the race routes for riding and viewing the stages. Typically, race trip itineraries will feature a mix of 3- and 4-star hotels. On our race trips, the cuisine is fresh and local. Our dinners will range from casual tapas to multi-course dinners. Breakfast is served each morning at the hotel. Lunches will offer a bounty of local specialties, from fabulous picnics to local fare at quaint bistros.
