Rendez-vous in Tallard 05130 Tallard fr

Tallard is the kingdom of air sports, especially parachuting and paragliding, that attracts fanatics from around Europe.

And that might have given wings to Cedric Vasseur before taking off for a long stage heading to Marseille in 2007.

Part of a strong breakaway group, the French rider who had carried the Yellow Jersey ten years before and was living his last season as a professional rider eventually beat to the line one of his young compatriots at the time, Sandy Casar who recently decided to also retire from racing.

Must see

  • The château de Tallard (XIV century, dedicated Historic Monument),
  • Saint-Grégoire church (located in the ancient centre of the town, also classed as an historic monument),
  • Notre-Dame du Laus Sanctuary, place of pilgrimage is located nearby.
