CYCLING fans should head to Villefranche-du-Périgord on Sunday 10 June, when a race through the bastides and woods of the area takes place.
The 22nd Tour du Périgord will see 150 cyclists take on a 154 km course around the local villages of Villefranche and Besse, as well as the challenging hills and sweeping bends of the area, giving you a chance to experience an afternoon of cycling action.
Teams from across France will be in competition and the last race in 2016 was undertaken in a strong wind, that saw the field stretched out as the battle for first place came to a climax.
This year's race starts at 13h15 from Villefranche-du-Périgord, with the finish expected to be around 17h and it forms part of the Coupe de France, Division Nationale 3 competition.
Here is a short video from 2016's race.
