Magnus Cort Nielsen claimed a stage in 2018 just by the medieval city as soon as his first Tour. Going back into time, one will remember Yaroslav Popovych a winner in 2006 after having powered away from the leading group with three kilometres to go. 1962 was the year when the Saint-Raphaël team of Jacques Anquetil managed a double with Jean Stablinski beating Rudi Altig by just a few seconds. In 1951, André Rosseel who impressively took off managed to avenge his three Belgian compatriots (Norbert Callens, Raymond Impanis and Albéric Schotte) beaten by the smart Lucien Teisseire when the sprint was launched on the Carcassonne velodrome.
