The Tour de France, passing through Lorraine

Lorraine is spoiled for this 2022 edition of the Tour de France! The 6th stage of the men’s Tour will indeed arrive in Longwy, and the 7th stage will start from Tomblaine, near Nancy, and will cross part of Lorraine before arriving at La Planche des Belles Filles in Haute-Saône. Then the Women’s Tour will reward us with a 100% Lorraine stage with a start in Bar-le-Duc and a finish in Saint-Dié-des-Vosges. Before leaving the next day from this same city. Beautiful holidays in anticipation!
