Strasbourg will held the 2006 Tour de France

Strasbourg will held the 2006 Tour de France
Events in Alsace.For a long while now, Strasbourg has focused heavily on sport. An essential component of the social fabric, sport in Strasbourg concerns more than 220 sporting associations and 53.000 license holders for 66 registered sports.
Sports activities, along with the media attention and the values that they engender, all contribute to boosting the national and international reputation of the city and its urban community.

The sports policy implemented by the urban community and the city of Strasbourg is a dynamic one.
The municipality supports top level sports, with its spotlight on dynamism and passion, as much as amateur activities.
The start of the 2006 Tour de France in Strasbourg is hence the result of an ambitious policy of active support of cycling, of top-level athletes and clubs, and of major international competitions (Davis Cup, Euro Handball Tournament,).

With its 430 km of cycle tracks, Strasbourg comes top of the list ahead of forty other French towns. The focus placed on cycling is reflected in the additional 10 km of cycle tracks that are installed each year, the fitting of roll over bars and the marking of bicycles.
Moreover, by the year 2007, approximately 900 bicycle shelters will be built next to the train station for a better reception of future TGV users.

THE ALSACIAN STAGES

Strasbourg
Tour start in 1953 and 2006. Strasbourg welcomed the first alsatian stage of the tour in 1919. One year after the end of ww1 (1914 - 1918), it symbolised the rebirth of the race and the return of the alsace region to france.
Six tour winners belong to the city’s past-winners-list: thys (1920), Frantz (1924), Leducq (1929), Robic (1947), Merckx (1971) and Hinault (1985). Special reference must also be made to the belgian rider emile masson, who won a stage in 1922, followed by his son, ranked equal with weckerling in 1938.

Mulhouse
Stage for the first time in 1925 (1st: Frantz) and most recently in 2005 (1st: Rasmussen). Four tour winners won a stage in strasbourg: Frantz (1925), Hinault (1981), Fignon (1992) and Armstrong (2000). The city hosted the start of the tour in 1959 and in 1971.

Colmar
Stage for the first time in 1931 (1st: Leducq) and most recently in 2001 (1st: L. Jalabert).

Altkirch
Stage departure in 1977.

Le Ballon D’alsace
Although it is technically located in lorraine (on the border with the haut-rhin), the ballon d’alsace is an integral part of any text on the alsace region.
It was climbed for the first time in 1905 and most recently in 2005 and four tour-stage-finishes took place at its summit: 1967 (1st: aimar), 1969 (1st: merckx), 1972 (1st: thévenet) and 1979 (1st: villemiane).
