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.

In the Middle Ages, the town built on a cliff in the Alzou valley attracted large numbers of pilgrims, who came to pray to the Black Madonna, who performed miracles and watched over the relics of Saint-Amadour. The village gained notoriety much later on among a new following with the release of Gérard Blanchard’s hit Rock Amadour. On the cycling front, the 2020 edition of the Route d’Occitanie, which marked the resumption of racing activity after a period of strict confinement, featured a stage finish in Rocamadour. Benoît Cosnefroy emerged as the most explosive rider on the formidable final climb to the basilica and castle.

  • First-time stage town
  • Commune in Lot (46)
  • Population: 630 (Amadouriens and Amadouriennes), 47,300 in the 77 communes comprising the Causses et Vallée de la Dordogne municipality, 174,000 in Lot
