Le Tour de France to come through Morzine this summer


Morzine will host one of the most nail biting stages of the world famous Tour de France this summer. 

The competition, now 112 years old – consists of 21 stages with the final stage being a concession from the leader of stage 20 parading into the centre of Paris.

Fortunately for anyone in Morzine on Saturday 23rd July – this means the penultimate stage (stage 20) from Megeve – Morzine will most likely provide for some incredible spectator action.

The competition runs from 2nd – 24th July, however the route will be popular with keen bikers throughout summer trying to take on the gruelling stretches and climbs that the likes of Bradley Wiggins and Peter Sagan have undertaken in past years to be crowned winner of Le Tour de France.

Morzine has hosted this important stage many times due to it’s fantastic selection of climbs and natural beauty. The Col de Joux Plane hosts this years final climb, which any local will know provides a perfect snapshot of what Les Portes du Soleil is really about.
