A section of road on the L’Étape Australia 2022 Race and Ride route has been closed to traffic following torrential rains on the South Coast on the 5th July. A landslip on Jamberoo Mountain Road has resulted in 60m of road failing, with the landslip and flood waters eroding the base and fracturing the tarmac.

This section of road was to be used twice for the 2022 Race route and once for the Ride route.

Following advice from Kiama Council concerning the 3 to 4 months required for the repair works, L’Étape Australia cannot be 100% certain the road will open in time for the 26-27 November event. Therefore, L’Étape Australia will not take place in 2022.

All registered riders will receive a refund over the next 21 days.

Lateral Events would like to thank the riders, Destination NSW, SBS, the Tour de France, Shimano and Cuore as well as the Wollongong, Shellharbour, Wingecarribee and Kiama Councils and community for their continued support for L’Étape Australia.
