In just a few pedal strokes, you are out of the city of Sion and into the vineyards along the Chemin du Vignoble. As you climb towards Mayens de la Zour, the landscape becomes more and more pristine. Take a moment to enjoy the view before diving into the village of Savièse. Throughout the descent and the climb to Arbaz and Anzère, let yourself be intoxicated by the smell of the mountain flowers and herbs, invaluable in the making of Ricola sweets. After this first stage, you will have accumulated 58.8km, with three ascensions totalling 2,300 metres of climbing.
