The Tour de l’Ain, 2021 edition, will begin this Thursday, July 29 for a first start at the Parc des oiseaux, and a final finish on July 31 at Lélex Mont-Jura.

For more than thirty years, lovers of cycling races have gathered for the Tour de l’Ain, organized by Alpes Vélo. And this year will be no exception: the 33rd Tour de l’Ain will take place from July 29 to 31.

The race will be in three stages: the first part of the Bird Park to reach Bourg-en-Bresse (July 29), the second from Lagnieu to Saint-Vulbas (July 30) and the last from Izernore to Lélex Mont-Jura (July 31).

126 riders are expected on the starting line. They will compete for the Semcoda combativity prize (for the runner “the most generous in effort and showing the best sportsmanship”), or one of the four jerseys:

– the yellow jersey Solimut Mutuelle de France: for the leader of the general individual classification in time
– the Auvergne Rhône-Alpes region polka-dot jersey: for the leader of the mountain classification by points registered on the summits of the climbs and passes listed and classified by category
– the Crédit Mutuel green jersey: for the leader of the classification by points awarded at each stage finish
– the white jersey: for the best youngster under 23

The competition, which will cross Ain through 88 of its municipalities, will be broadcast on France 3 Auvergne Rhône-Alpes from July 29 to 31 from 2 p.m. to 4 p.m., and from 12:30 p.m. on
