Tour de France Coming to Las Vegas

Las Vegas

L’Étape Las Vegas by Tour de France, an amateur mass participation cycling event by Tour de France, is coming to Las Vegas on May 13 and 14, 2023.

The new event was announced on Thursday at the Las Vegas Ballpark®—the starting location of the race—by L’Étape by Tour de France, Las Vegas Convention and Visitors Authority (LVCVA), Southern Nevada Bicycle Coalition, Clark County, and Las Vegas Ballpark representatives. The Las Vegas Ballpark® hosted a Tour de France night to celebrate the announcement of the event. 

L’Étape Las Vegas offers a distance for all cycling abilities. Riders can choose between the 75-mile, 50-mile or 25-mile competitive distances.

Riders will compete for authentic Tour de France jerseys including the Yellow Jersey, for the overall male and female winners, the Green Jersey, for the sprint-section winners, and the Polka-Dot Jersey, for the King/Queen of the Mountain (KOM/QOM) section winners.

All routes will depart from the Las Vegas Ballpark and head west into Red Rock Canyon, with elevation of over +6,000 ft for riders opting for the 75-mile distance.

Courses have been designed by Tour de France experts and course maps are available online at lasvegas.letapebytourdefrance.com.

There will also be a Family Ride (10-miles) and Kids Race.

The weekend-long event will include a fan fest at the Las Vegas Ballpark, patterned after the iconic Tour de France Village Départ. A Tour de France champion will also attend the event, ride the course with participants and share their Tour de France experiences at a ticketed Champions Dinner. (The Champion attending will be announced later this year). 

"We are thrilled to bring L’Étape by Tour de France to Las Vegas. When trying to find a home for L’Étape by Tour de France in the United States, we couldn’t think of a better fit than Las Vegas. This city is about new experiences and adventures and L’Étape Las Vegas is exactly that—bringing a unique, challenging, Tour-de-France quality event to the beautiful Las Vegas and Red Rock Canyon roads. We’re bringing the legendary Tour de France name to one of the most legendary cities in the world.” said Michael Brown, L’Étape Las Vegas Race Director.
