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?

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 650 participants representing 8 nations, has demonstrated the know-how of the organizers, first and foremost Sébastien MĒDAN, 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 14 and 15, 2022!

And for the most passionate among you, don't forget to join us on August 25 and 26, 2022 for a stage of the Tour de l'Avenir.

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.
