One of the country's leading hill climb events, Le Race is a 100km cycle race on fast flats, challenging hill climbs and exhilarating downhills that take you from Christchurch City to the French Settlement of Akaroa.

Enter in one of the team options or as an individual and be crowned king or queen of the mountain!

Here's a question just posed at work - is it pronounced "Le" Race or "La" Race?

Apparently "La" is the feminine and races are females... apparently...

if it's spelt Le it's pronounced Le - why would you pronounce Le as La?

And who said all races are feminine - it's "Le Tour De France" ("le tour" for short) after all

anyway, it's clearly franglais, so correct gender is moot

yes, but 'tour' is masculine, hence 'le tour de france' (literally 'the france ride') - and like I said 'le race' is franglais
