Paris / Céret (dpa) – Retired biathlon superstar Martin Fourcade is enthusiastic. Just a few minutes after the presentation of the route for the Tour de France 2021, the Frenchman reported on Twitter.
The reason: the 15th stage on July 11th, which starts in his hometown Céret and leads to Andorra. ‘We’ll be there in July, won’t we?’ Fourcade wrote on social media, addressing the post to a friend.
There are a total of five stages in the Pyrenees in the 108th edition of the world’s most important cycling race. Fourcade is one of the largest and most successful biathletes in history. In March 2020, he announced his retirement from professional sport.
