Maubourguet welcomes the Tour de France for the first time.

An area of plains and hills, the Pays du Val d'Adour is at the crossroads of the Béarn, Bigorre and Gascogne cultures.

Concerning Maubourguet, the name of the common was chosen by its inhabitants to inspire fear to possible invaders.

But the “Bad Village” will certainly be far more hospitable to the riders.

While the Tour de France will stop there for the first time, Maubourguet has already hosted the start of a stage of the Tour des Pyrenées in 2004, heading to Lourdes and claimed by Théo Eltink.
