Surrounded by mountains, the town on the Swiss border has understandably produced good climbers, such as Philippe Chevallier, winner of a stage in Pau in 1983. Jérôme Coppel then became the ambassador of Annemasse in the peloton, and showed particular proficiency in time trials, notably in 2015 when he won a bronze medal at the Richmond World Championships in the United States. The onus is now on brothers Aurélien and Valentin Paret-Peintre to make their home town shine. In 2004, Annemasse was the starting point for a stage towards the end of the Tour that Juan Miguel Mercado win in Lons-le-Saunier.
