Spirit of the Tour



The "Spirit of the Tour" trophy commemorates the memory of Peter Doig and his role in the development of the Alpine Chapter's original "Le Tour de North East" in 2010.

The Tours were run annually from 2010 to 2015 by the Alpine Chapter of North East Victoria and have since then been continued by the Alpine Alfisti Association of Australia.


The award recipient is selected jointly by the Tour organisers and the current award holder and awared to the participant that contributed most to the general spirit of the Tour.


The perpetual trophy is inscribed with the name(s) of the Spirit of the Tour winner(s) and a permanent keepsake is presented as well.
