Part of the urban community of Laval, Changé likes to be known as a city in the countryside, proud of its natural heritage and of its touristic fluvial harbour. Its appearance on the course of the race with a “100% Mayenne” time-trial allows the Tour de France to once again settle in the French département, 22 years after the victory of Tom Steels in Laval. An exciting return to the land of Marc and Yvon Madiot who both had the joy as riders to witness a finish in their village of Renazé in 1987. At the time, despite the efforts in the final moments of Marc wearing his French National champion‘s jersey, Adrie van der Poel had claimed the win.
