Special guest

In an idyllic setting between lake and mountains, the accessible courses are within the reach of all. I am looking forward to meeting you on May 13 and 14, 2023 for the 3rd edition of which I will again be the sponsor. Good winter 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 ๐Ÿš—, 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?

Christophe Arminjon,
Mayor of Thonon-les-Bains

Resolutely committed to the promotion of its territory, the city of Thonon-les-Bains will host, this year again, the Thonon Cycling Race.

The success of the first edition, with more than 1450 participants representing 8 nations, has demonstrated the know-how of the organizers, first and foremost Sรฉbastien Mฤ’DAN, who was able to unite around this ambitious project.

Thanks to the renewed sponsorship of Laurent JALABERT, there is no doubt that this second edition will convince a growing public, lovers of the Little Queen and the great landscapes.

What could be better than a weekend between lake and mountains? Everyone, young or old, will find there the opportunity to live a unique experience, made of discoveries, escape and challenges.

See you in Thonon-les-Bains on May 13 and 14, 2023!

Sรฉbastien Medan,
Prรฉsident Chablais Lรฉman Sport Organisation

What a pride for the Chablais Lรฉman Sport Organisation team to be able to promote the economy, sports and tourism of the region through the mobility solution of tomorrow.

A postcard setting with nearly 1500 participants, wearing the colors of the event and coming from 13 countries / 60 different French departments. They were able to enjoy the tranquility of Lake Geneva and its mountains.

A party punctuated by the presence of an iconic sponsor, Laurent Jalabert, in good shape and available, as well as by an outstanding endowment of our partners.

Thank you to all the stakeholders: elected officials, partners, volunteers and service providers, without whom nothing would be possible. We are happy to be able to continue our mission of development in 2023 and to make the Thonon Cycling Race a wonderful vector of cohesion and communication.

Good winter preparation!
