In the heart of Europe, the Rhone-Alpes region boasts an exceptional natural setting, notably the mountains which cover three-quarters of the area. It is an immense open-air playground, offering opportunities for fans of all ages to enjoy and reap the health benefits of sport.

The region's flagship project, the ViaRhôna, has opened up the banks of the Rhone to connect Lake Léman to the Mediterranean. This is a great opportunity for high level athletes, some of whom form the TEAM Rhone-Alpes, and who sport our region’s colours throughout the world.

They also participate in major competitions organised throughout the year in the Rhone-Alpes, including the Critérium du Dauphiné. This race is one of the greatest in the world, due to its route and quality of the riders who take part and our Region is proud to play host to it every year.
