Rendez-vous in Luchon 31 Luchon fr

Bagneres-de-Luchon Luchon or "Queen of the Pyrenees".

In 1910, Luchon entered history by welcoming the finish and then the start of the first two high mountain stages of the Tour de France, both claimed by Octave Lapize.For that reason, the city deserves its nickname as the Queen of the Pyrenees.

A hundred years later, a similar program had been set up to the riders of the Tour.

Thomas Voeckler won in Bagnères-de-Luchon with the French champion's jersey on his shoulders. And in 2012, the Europcar rider made the best of a long breakaway to conquer yet another win in the thermal town.
