CYCLE CITY

All towns and cities that have hosted the Tour de France and the Tour de France Femmes avec ZWIFT at least once since the creation of these two events are eligible.

Although the Lot’s prefecture was where Pope John XXII was born in the 13th century, it’s best remembered in French history as the birthplace of Léon Gambetta, a major political figure of the Third Republic. Jacky Durand was wearing the French national champion’s tricolore jersey when he won the only previous Tour finish in Cahors in 1994, after spending more than 150 kilometres in a breakaway. The town also featured on the 2007 Tour map as the start of a stage to Angoulême, where Sandy Casar proved fastest from a four-man breakaway.

  • Stage town for the 3rd time
  • Prefecture of Lot (46)
  • Population: 20,800 (Cadurciens and Cadurciennes), 41,700 within the 36 communes in the Greater Cahors municipality, 174,000 in Lot
