The peloton of the Tour never stopped in Romans. However, the riders of Paris-Nice have had the opportunity to enjoy its famous ‘ravioles': a first time in 1962 on the evening of Rudi Altig's victory, and then last spring to celebrate the win of Nacer Bouhanni. While the finish in the city will be a first, the peloton of the Tour has on numerous occasions been drawn by one of its child, cartoonist Roger Blachon. Romans is also the native city of one of the rising stars of French cycling, Pierre Latour, winner of a stage on this year's Vuelta.
