A few rules
Here's our advice on how to make the most of the 2 stages of the Tour in the Ubaye Valley.
Before the caravan and the race pass by
Find out about the times when the caravan and the race will pass by, road closures and recommended itineraries.
While waiting for the riders to pass, do not take up position at the exit of a bend where visibility is poor.
Organisers' vehicles will be driving along the route before or after the publicity caravan passes. Keep an eye out for these lone vehicles, often travelling at high speed.
Don't leave your children unsupervised.
Take something to drink, eat and protect yourself from the sun, and be prepared for changes in the weather (jumper, umbrella).
During the passage of the caravan and the riders
Stay behind the safety barriers.
Respect the instructions given by the police, gendarmerie and road managers.
Keep an eye on your children and hold their hands.
Be careful when collecting gifts handed out by the publicity caravan.
Keep as far away from the road as possible: unstabilised verges or kerbs may be used by the riders. In all cases, stay off the road.
Don't change your position at the last minute.
Do not run, especially next to runners.
Do not spray runners.
Do not wave banners over the runners.
Keep your pets on a lead and away from the roadside.
Take your photos away from the road.
These safety rules may change as the stages approach. Remember to stay informed.
