Le Tour De France 2016: Stage 8


Pau / Bagnères-de-Luchon 183KM

 The great classic of the Pyrenees has been reconsidered for this 2016 edition of the Tour. After the Col du Tourmalet, the race will, for the first time, head up the Hourquette d'Ancizan from a different side before taking on the Col de Val-Louron-Azet and Peyresourde! A battle with several levels where anything and everything can happen.

The city of Henry the 4th welcomed the race in style on sixty-seven occasions, which puts it on the podium behind Paris and Bordeaux of the event's most faithful cities. It is also since last summer, the city of the Giants of the Tour (Le Tour des Géants) with sculptures representing each winner of La Grande Boucle set in the Philippe Tissié stadium. On each figure is the name and the photo of the winner of the concerned year as well as a text written by author Christian Laborde.
