Cobblestones, tricky climbs and only one - albeit long - time trial outside the prologue will keep this 2010 Tour de France suspenseful. The mountains will be honoured - especially with a finish on the summit of Tourmalet - and your favourite riders will be present along with seven time champion Lance Armstrong. So do not miss this exceptional event and board on a breathtaking ride! Check out what the Spanish armada has to throw at L.A and team Radioshack and the progress the brothers Schleck have made again with another season of racing in their young legs.

On the 18th of July, thousands of cyclists from around the globe will make a piece of history.
100 years ago, Octave Lapize was the first cyclist who climbed the Tourmalet – with a 12 kg bike! The 2010 Etape du Tour competitors will certainly have a thought for this as they will climb this legendary Col – which symbolizes all by itself the hard conditions in the Pyrenees. It will be climbed on its steepest side uphill from Barèges. You will have to overcome other Pyrenees monuments – the Col de Marie-Blanque and the Col du Soulor before reaching the top of Tourmalet. A challenging ride!
Ronan Pensec Travel packages for Etape du Tour have been designed for you to be in your top form the D-day. They include a bib number and offer accomodation in Pau very close to the starting line, which will be a great advantage for the race!
