Following speculation and rumoured routes last week, excitement is mounting regarding the Summer 2016 Tour de France. Will it visit Morzine-Avoriaz again next summer? Guessing the route before it’s officially announced is always part of the fun. The Mairie de Morzine-Avoriaz have just released the following statement, which may dampen local excitement levels, for a short time at least.
“A lot of information circulating is about the 2016 Tour de France. What about the candidacy of Morzine -Avoriaz?
An application dossier “ville-step” was filed to the Amaury Sport Organisation (ASO) to bring the Tour de France to Morzine-Avoriaz in 2016. To date, the Amaury Sport Organisation company has not officially responded to the municipality. Apart from the grand depart in Mont Saint Michel, the Tour 2016 is not yet announced.
Therefore, all information that may circulate with the supposed route of stage towns are just rumors.
A communiqué will be issued as soon as the town has received official information from the ASO.”
Here at Source Magazine we try to bring you as much information as we can about proposed resort developments and events. We’ll always mark them as ‘rumoured’ and ‘unconfirmed’ until we’re 100% sure of them (as we did last week). The Mairie de Morzine-Avoriaz have now confirmed officially that they have made a bid for Le Tour in 2016 so we’ve every reason to be hopeful! When the exact tour route is confirmed on 20th October, we’ll bring it to you straight away.
