Rendez-vous in Saint-Lary Pla d'Adet
Ski resort in the French Pyrenees, Saint-Lary combines tourism, sports practices and traditional mountain activities.
The first time the Tour finished in Saint-Lary was back in 1974 when Raymond Poulidor had captured the last of his six stage successes on the event, putting the pressure on Eddy Merckx.
The scene occurred under the eyes of Daniel Mangeas who was making his improvised debut as the official Tour speaker!
Two years later, confirmed in his function, he was present to commentate on the solo victory of Belgian Lucien Van Impe, who sealed his triumph in his battle against Joop Zoetemelk.
