Tour de France arrives in Avoriaz


11th July - 13th July 2010 - Morzine Team Radio Shack, Lance Armstrong's cycling team, arrived in Morzine a few weeks ago to commence altitude training in preparation for the Tour de France. Lance Armstrong is famous for battling and beating testicular cancer and for winning the Tour de France a record-breaking seven consecutive years. However Lance got no preferential treatment from the local residents in the Portes du Soleil, with local cows blocking his route while he was out training. Perhaps they aren't impressed by a seven time Tour winning superhero. His cycling team, Team Radioshack, are undertaking a series of cycling events all across the world and The Tour de France is one of them. Morzine and Avoriaz have often been favourite stages for the cyclists who will be racing up from Station des Rousses into Morzine on Sunday 11th July. They then have one rest day before continuing on from Morzine town centre to Saint Jean de Maurinenne on Tuesday 13th July.
