THE HAUTE ROUTE
The Haute Route is the world’s first global series of prestigious multi-day events for amateur riders with the timed and ranked stage events embedded in the world’s most iconic cycling terrain. With professional level mechanical and medical support, security on the road, post stage services and much more riders live and ride like a professional cyclist in the world’s most iconic cycling locations and share their journey with fellow riders from across the globe.
We are excited to announce that NOMAN is an Island: Race to End HPV is the official charity partner of the Haute Route. It is a massive opportunity to use the recognizable Haute Route platform to expand our message of universal vaccination against the causal agent of 5% of all cancers—HPV. Meanwhile, we’ll be racing on the most famous mountain passes of the Grand Tours.
In 2021, participants can join Team NOMAN as part of the following events:
CRANS- MONTANA: 11 -13 June 2021
