Welcome to France and VIP Finish venue

With our VIP access, we will enter the Izoard VIP hospitality venue in Sarran Correze. The Izoard venue is located close to the finish line and will allow us to enjoy air-conditioning, private restrooms and TVs to follow the race before the racers pass live in front of us.  There will be food, beverages, beer and champagne to toast the stage winner.

Once the race finishes, we will transfer to Clermont Ferrand, where our hotel is located. Clermont Ferrand is a city bordered by the volcanic Chaîne des Puys mountains. The cyclists will get fitted for their bikes and take a short ride.
