Description

The last race of the Valais Cup series, La Derupe takes place not far from the route of Sierre-Zinal, but at lower elevation due to its late date. This short, steep race starts in the Rhône valley village of Chalais, and switchbacks up through forests, to the mountain town of Vecorin. Entry includes a ride back to the valley on the local telepherique.
