Wednesday July 12th – Pau finish:
Today’s stage:
The riders of the 2017 Tour de France enter the Pyrenees with a 202km stage from Eymet into Pau. One for the sprinters we think so spectacular finish action.

Izoard finishline hospitality:
The Tour de France sets up a limited number of areas located on course within the final portion of the stage. These have names like Izoard and Galibier. Access to these areas is reserved and by invitation only. You will see famous ex-cyclists, sponsors and team guests. Typically these areas are within 200 metres or so of the finish line. There is also a spectator friendly elevated viewing area. You will be served with drinks and snacks and there is a big screen to watch the LIVE action as it unfolds. After watching the finish, you will celebrate the victory with Champagne.

Thursday July 13th – Pau to Peyragudes:
Today's stage:
The second Pyrenean mountain stage starts from the city of Pau and takes in the Col de Menté, followed by the Port de Balès and then the final climb to the ski town of Peyragudes. It is an absolute classic Pyrenean stage.

Village Depart in Pau:
The 2017 Tour de France entourage and organisation travel around with the riders. The team busses park within an enclosed and restricted area. An expo type village is created at the start of each one of the stages. It is usually here that everyone who is linked in any way to the Tour de France like TV, sponsors and celebrities from the cycling world will show themselves. Also local companies will be keen to show off their wares. Your VIP passes will give you access to the village and the rider’s paddock. If you into collecting autographs, this is the best place for it.
