The L’Etape Du Tour is a cycling event through the Alps and gives 10,000 amateur riders the opportunity to ride a 128km stage of the Tour De France under tour conditions.
Here Team Sky rider CJ Sutton, former rider Dario Cioni and Team Sky nutritionist Nigel Mitchell talk riders through how Team Sky would approach the course, giving advice on riding, clothing and nutrition.

Fun Fact: The youngest person to win the Tour De France was, appropriately enough, Henri Comet in 1904. The oldest was Firmin Lambot who won in 1922 at the ripe old age of 36.
