Octave Challenge by Transpyr Deporvillage Coast to Coast 2024

This year, the Transpyr is back!
From June 9 to 15, it will link Roses to St-Jean de Luz via the Pyrenees and its legendary Tour de France passes.
On the programme: 7 stages averaging 145km, 1,000kms in total and more than 20,000m d+ accumulated.

The icing on the cake: timing on 4 legendary mountain passes

For the second year running, Octave is partnering the Transpyr and offering you an extra challenge: the timed ascent of a mythical pass present on each of the last 4 stages of the route:
– Col d’Aspin on June 12;
– Col du Tourmalet on June 13;
– Col du Soudet on June 14;
– Izpeguy pass on June 15.


This year, the Transpyr organization is offering two registration options:
– the complete 7-day route from Roses (ES) to St-Jean de Luz (FR);
– the eastern part, 3 stages from Roses (ES) to Vielha (ES) ;
– the western part, 4 stages from Vielha (ES) to St-Jean de Luz (FR).

Practical information


Entry to the time trial sector will be non-stop, as you pass the start point, so this is not an individual time trial sector. The finish will also be launched.


The timed course will remain open to traffic and other road users, with the organizers restricting themselves to giving right of way where necessary.


Participants are free to adopt whatever tactics and strategies they see fit throughout the timed sector.


To appear in the CHALLENGE OCTAVE rankings, participants must have completed all four stages of the event.
