Tours de France

The big event Saturday 26 July 2014 Bergerac – Périgueux against the clock

7 years after diagonally crossing the Dordogne, 20 years after the last stage against the clock between Périgueux and Bergerac, the Tour de France returns to the Department for a stage which looks like the best event in the Périgourdian calendar this summer.  

The route of the Bergerac - Périgueux stage will be as follows and as a race against the clock the route will be closed for an entire day!

The advertising caravan will travel the route from 8:35 to 9:42... 
In Bergerac, the first rider will start at 10:05.
In Périgueux, the last will arrive around 17.30... 

From Bergerac, the route will go through stunning scenery and the following villages: Beleymas, Villamblard, Manzac-sur-Vern et Coulounieix-Chamiers to end in Périgueux.

This will be a great day for all the towns on the route and should be an exciting event for onlookers be they fans, residents or tourists…
