Tour de France 2016 – Rumoured Route

There’s been speculation for a couple of months now that Morzine-Avoriaz will feature on the 2016 Tour de France race route. It’ll be 6 years since the Tour de France party last rolled into town for a stage finish and a rest day. Rumours abound that the local council has bid for the same in 2016.

And then this map arrived in our inbox this morning, demonstrating the 2016 route and featuring Morzine-Avoriaz as a stage finish on 13th and 14th July 2016. This hasn’t come from an official source but it does suggest that we’ve every reason to get excited! The Tour de France has huge economic benefits for the resort and helps to raise its profile among a massive global audience.

We will, of course, keep you posted when the official race route is announced in October.

    This map is a fantasy one. It originates from this forum (www.legruppetto.com) where we organize each year a contest consisting in drawing a fantasy Tour de France based on the departure place which has just been presented (in this case Manche area). Sorry for this misunderstanding.

    Besides, we follow rumors on our forum and until now Morzine-Avoriaz hasn’t come through, although there is a big lack of information for the Alps…

    Let’s hope so but it will come down to money in the end. At least it will mean the Joux Plane is repaired.
