La Désalpe Reichenbach in a nutshell
Imagine a unique cycling event, designed for families and companions, in the footsteps of the Tour de France 2016 while crossing an incredible valley, with the Mont-Blanc massif in the background. La Désalpe Reichenbach is an event organized around cycling, but not only centered on cycling. As Sébastien and his different interests, this event wishes to be friendly, authentic, family orientated and full of surprises. Open to all audiences, it is a moment made for sharing and pleasure.
An authentic name for an authentic cyclo! Evocative and federative, by illustrating the attachment of the event to its “terroir”, the Désalpe Reichenbach will be an opportunity to discover the culinary, viticultural and breweries riches of an entire region.
We suggest a personalized route offer to the needs of all. The fanatics of road cycling or mountain biking will be able to test one last time themselves before storing their bike for the winter. A sporting challenge inf favor of ELA will be organized on a closed road between Finhaut and Emosson.
The Désalpe Reichenbach suggests a different offer as it will support the Switzerland ELA Association. By taking part in the day, either by participating in one of the chargeable courses, or by joining us on the Emosson site, you will support the Association since the benefits of the day will be refunded to the association.
Our experience is mainly for families! Valais Roule (https://wallisrollt.ch) will make free bycicles available to families. A concept of animations for all age groups has been set up: fun games for the littles ones, Barbapapi animations and contraflow bikes by Gerry Ouelvay, agility courses and polo bikes for teenagers on the dam with Pro Vélo (http://www.pro-velo-valais.ch). Families can also take the option of a safe route on the dam. Finally, families and companions will benefit from discounted transportation packages.
The Désalpe Reichenbach is an invitation to discover in one of the pearls of the canton, the Trient Valley. For fun or performance, alone or accompanied, little ones or older ones, we guarantee you a magical day, with in the background, the Mont Blanc massif.

An excellent experience that allowed him to pursue his international career. Racing for the team FDJ, he is nowadays a centrepiece of this team, as a lieutenant for his leader Thibaut Pinot.
Sébastien has always carried on his bike as in his daily life, values of work, of renunciation, of simplicity and reliability. Humble in success and passionate by his sport, he is considered as one of the best swiss cycling racers and as a first-class team-mate within the professional peloton.
The Désalpe Reichenbach is an important moment of his 2018 season, a long-awaited opportunity to share his passions with a substantial community of fans in his region.
