  • Stybar wins in Le Havre, Martin is injured

    Mixed feeling for Etixx-Quick Step in Le Havre: Zdenek Stybar anticipated the bunch sprint to win stage 6 while race leader Tony Martin crashed in the last kilometer and crossed the line obviously injured and likely to pull out of the Tour de France. Daniel Teklehaimanot made history for Africa with taking the polka dot jersey.

Tourist attractions

Abbeville

The gateway to the Bay of Somme opened for the first time to the peloton of the Tour de France in 2012 with a stage leaving Abbeville and heading to Rouen where André Greipel captured the second of his six successes on the event. The Tour de Picardie is also used to visiting the coastal city and stopped over in Abbeville on many occasions. But the race that is the most often welcomed in the common is the Tour de la Somme. In 2005, a young Dutch cyclocross rider, Lars Boom, claimed one his first victories on the road. That was well before his impressive performance on the cobbles last July and his Tour stage win in Arenberg Porte du Hainaut.

Le Havre

The harbour of Le Havre has become, since its creation by King François the 1st, a major exchange hub, but it has also been at the heart of the history of sports well before welcoming the Tour for the first time in 1911. The city indeed welcomed the Olympic Games both in 1900 and 1924 thanks to the Société des Régates Havraise in charge of organizing the sailing events. The oldest sailing club of the country, born in 1839, was created well before the Havre Athletic Club, considered as the oldest French football club after launching a football section in 1894. In terms of cycling, the inhabitants of Le Havre have been awaiting the 20th visit of the Tour de France for the last 20 years.
