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.

The Hautes-Pyrénées municipality is appearing on the Tour map for the first time, but its fame has already spread worldwide thanks to its most famous son, who could only be a rugby player. Antoine Dupont first played the game at the inappropriately- named Magnoac Football Club, long before playing for Stade Toulousain, with whom he has won the French championship (2019 and 2021) and the European Cup (2021). France’s scrum-half, named best player at the 2020 Six Nations Championship, is frequently lauded with the unofficial title of best number nine on the planet, a status he’ll be aiming to live up to as the 2023 World Cup in France approaches.

  • First-time stage town
  • Town in Hautes-Pyrénées (65)
  • Population: 800 (Magnoacais and Magnoacaises), 225,000 in Hautes-Pyrénées
