An event that has long captivated our imaginations, the Torino-Nice Rally follows a roughly 650-kilometer route through the Alps between Turin, Italy, and Nice, France, winding along a rugged mix of roads and linking high passes with valleys and sleepy small towns. We’ve shared a handful of reports from the event (it’s a rally, not a race) over the years, which you can find linked in the related content grid at the bottom of this post. As of yesterday, organizer James Olsen is pleased to announce that the registration window for the sixth annual Komoot Torino-Nice Rally is now open.
As always, the event will begin on the first Monday of September, and you must send a postcard for a chance to be entered. This year’s postcard theme is “Interesting People,” but any postcard will do. A random drawing for spots will happen in late May, so be sure to send your postcard soon if you’re interested in participating. There’s a small entry fee this year, which will help cover the costs of insurance. The actual amount is still TBD but will be “less than a couple of rolls of bar tape.” Note that 50% of places are reserved for women and riders with non-cisgender identities. Additionally, the event is making a point to welcome riders of all backgrounds and is committed to accommodating riders who feel that cycling is still “more for them than for me.”
You can find additional information and details on where to send your postcard over on the Torino-Nice Rally website.
