DescriptionThe 3rd stage of the Tour de l'Avenir will be rugged and 165 km long! The riders will start from Montignac-Lascaux (Dordogne), a major site of parietal art, to Mauriac (Cantal). A "trapper" stage that will pass through the rugged roads of Corrèze. If a breakaway does not thwart the teams' plans, there will certainly be an unrestrained final and an explanation between punchers on the long climb up to the Cantal plateaus.

Picture of the day
In 1940, the city of Montignac Lascaux became world famous with the discovery of the Lascaux cave with its prodigious skill in line and the brilliance of its painting colours. Montignac then became one of the cradles of humanity. In December 2016, Montignac was informed of the opening of the International Centre for Parietal Art, more commonly known as Lascaux 4. Nearly 500,000 visitors a year come to Montignac-Lascaux. Crossed by the Vézère river, Montignac has two main centres of life with a very rich architecture varied dating from the 14th, 15th and 16th centuries with houses on stilts and half-timbered, washhouses, fountains….
Mauriac is located between the upper Dordogne valley, classified as a World Biosphere Reserve by UNESCO and the Grand National Site of Le Puy-Mary. Labelled “Plus Beaux Détours de France” and “Sites et Cités Remarquables”, Mauriac is an essential stopover. It is one of the oldest cities of Cantal born about 2000 years ago. It began to flourish in the 9th century with the foundation of the monastery of Saint Peter, with royal status. The city then became a major centre of pilgrimages, attracting crowds. In the 12th century the Basilica of Our Lady of Miracles was built, huge markets were held in the city. Throughout the Middle Ages, Mauriac expanded.
Agriculture is one of the city’s main attractions and therefore an important economic vector with its market on the dial of the Parc des Rédines, unique in Auvergne. Tourism plays an important role in Mauriac’s life.
