This year, we have our two prestigious competitions returning to Etape Caledonia; the Erdinger King & Queen of the Mountain, and The Lord and Lady of the Loch. Will you be challenging for either of this year’s coveted titles?

King and Queen of the Mountain

Taking on the challenge of King & Queen of the Mountain is no mean feat. After the breath-taking start to the route which allows you to prepare your legs for what’s to come, you are then faced with the steep climb up Schiehallion, where you can battle it out with the other riders.

In addition to the achievement of being respectively crowned the King and Queen of the Mountain, each winner will also get their hands on a prize pack courtesy of Erdinger Alkoholfrei, including:

– A Trophy

– Erdinger Rucksack

– Erdinger Drink Bottle

– Erdinger Towel

– Erdinger Cycling Gloves

– Erdinger Neck Warmer

Have you got it in you to conquer the mountain?


Lord and Lady of the Loch

Perhaps this more endurance based challenge is more suited to you. Battle it out around Loch Rannoch as fast as you can to be crowned either the fastest man or woman around the Loch.

Get some serious mileage under your belt, prepare properly, and you might just be able to come away as Lord or Lady of the Loch.


The two lucky winners will win a night for two in a luxury double room at The Dunalastair Suites Hotel, situated in the stunning Kinloch Rannoch. This beautiful boutique hotel is reopening this May, and the lucky winner will be able to revisit Scotland and their victorious spot to enjoy a night of luxury – bike ride optional. Head over to their website to see the amazing multi-million-pound refurbishment and then get ready to thrash it out on May 21st to win this prize!

Let the speed training commence…

And if you’re really feeling in peak physical condition, then take on the double and become dual champion at the Etape Caledonia 2017.

Best of luck to all riders!
