Martial Saddier,
President of the Haute-Savoie Departmental Council

With its mythical passes that have made the great hours of international cycling competitions, Haute-Savoie is an exceptional playground for all lovers of the "Little Queen".

Along with Nicolas Rubin and Josiane Lei, Departmental Councillors of the Evian-les-Bains canton, I am particularly proud that the Departmental Council is once again supporting the Châtel Chablais Léman Race.

This 5th edition, between France and Switzerland, promises once again some beautiful climbs with in particular the ascent of the Portes de Culet and especially the final climb to the Col de Bassachaux. Thanks to its courses adapted to all levels, it contributes to prove that Haute-Savoie and more particularly the Chablais are sports lands par excellence.

Congratulations to the organizing committee and to all the volunteers who make this event a success every year, thus contributing to the influence of our beautiful department.

Good race to all

Maire de Châtel ; President of the Association of Mayors 74 ; 1st Vice President of the Haute-Savoie Departmental Council
