Special guest

In an idyllic setting between lake and mountains, I am very happy to invite you to the start of the 2nd edition of the "Thonon Cycling Race" where I will again be the godfather, on May 14th and 15th 2022. This event of the beginning of the season is open to all; conviviality and sharing will be the key words. I look forward to sharing a few kilometers or a moment of conviviality. Good preparation.

A jersey, timing, assistance and food included

A well-organized, secure and fun event for cyclists of all ages and abilities, from beginners to dedicated athletes. And everyone gets a unique official jersey.


Some incredible prizes, including a KIA 🚗, will be raffled off amongst all gran fondo participants. The full list of prizes will be visible on this website at a later date.

Exhibitors' Village

Brands from the cycle industry will mix with local artisans, producers and entrepreneurs to welcome you in a lively exhibitors village on both days.

A region to explore

Thonon-les-Bains and its surrounding region joining the Geneva Lake and the mountains of the Alps, are gorgeous and rich in sites to visit. Why not come for the event, stay an extra a day or two and explore?

Sébastien Medan,
Président Chablais Léman Sport Organisation

With a brilliant sun, it is nearly 700 cyclists who answered present for this 1st edition. What a pride for the CL Sport Organisation team to be able to promote the economy, sport and tourism of the region through the mobility solution of tomorrow.

The participants, of more than 10 nationalities, 50 departments FRA and with the colors of the event, were able to appreciate the quietness of the Lake Geneva and its mountains through a warm welcome of the city and the communes of Thonon Agglomeration, the Green Valley and of course the Chablais. A postcard setting.
A celebration punctuated by the presence of an iconic sponsor, Laurent Jalabert, in good shape and available, as well as by an extraordinary endowment from our partners.

Thank you to all the stakeholders without whom nothing would be possible. We are happy to be able to continue our mission of development in 2022 and to make the Thonon Cycling Race a wonderful vector of communication.

Christophe Arminjon,
Mayor of Thonon-les-Bains

With the Thonon Cycling Race, the town of Thonon-les-Bains is resolutely committed to promoting flagship events to liven up the Chablais region and consolidate its tradition of welcoming visitors in an exceptional environment, between lake and mountains.

Thanks to the experience of Sébastien MEDAN and the support of Laurent JALABERT, we will demonstrate our strong ambition to mobilise local actors around a popular and federative sport.

The Gravel event is fully in line with our strategy of offering our visitors a full mix of experiences, made of discoveries, escapes and challenges.

This is also about preparing a joint bid with the town of Châtel for the organisation of stages of the Tour de France.

We really hope to see you in Thonon on September 4th and 5th 2021.
