Attracting cycling enthusiasts from the South of France and further afield, the event has grown exponentially since 2012, with more than triple the number of riders taking part this year. Garnering incredible support from royalty and celebrities, previous participants of the event have included HSH Prince Albert of Monaco, Jenson Button, David Coulthard, and singer Caroline Corr.

This year, some very familiar faces to Sunseeker are riding, with keen cyclists Ben Young, MD of Sunseeker Superyacht Management and Kevin Taylor, Chairman of major sponsors the McLaren Group, joining the fundraising effort.

Supporting the riders and welcoming them over the finish line at Stars ‘n’ Bars will be Sunseeker London’s Sales Director Christopher Head, Sunseeker Poole’s Andy Jeans and Sunseeker Monaco’s Managing Director Nigel Bristow. Once the riders have had the chance to catch their breath, all teams and supporters will head to local favourite Slammers for the renowned St Tropez to Monaco Bike Ride street party.

Nigel Bristow, a discerning cyclist himself, comments on the upcoming events this weekend; “The St Tropez to Monaco Bike Ride has become an event that we very much look forward to at Sunseeker Monaco. Raising funds for Princess Charlene’s Foundation, which concentrates on children’s awareness of water safety, is so relevant to our location here and it’s a pleasure to support the cycling event. Who knows, perhaps I’ll do it myself one year…”

Our in-house photographer Tom Benson will be there on the day, sending images through for our next update. Keep your eyes peeled on the Sunseeker Blog Book next week…
