We had to be there, we had to say goodbye.“Thousands of Thibaut Pinot supporters have gathered in the Vosges for his last Tour de France before his retirement. Renamed the “Virage Pinot”, the place is located two kilometers from the summit of the Petit Ballon which is considered one of the last difficulties of this day’s stage on July 22, the day before the arrival of the Tour de France in Paris.

“It’s the atmosphere he likes”

The Collectif Ultras Pinot is above all friends, who have been inspired by football and the ultras with a lot of humor. “Thibaut, being a PSG fan, suits him perfectly. I think it’s a nice nod and a nice tribute, and there aren’t many racers who can claim to have a following like that.“The family of Thibaut Pinot was also present among all these supporters. “It’s nice, there’s a good atmosphere, an atmosphere that he likes. So we’re here to celebrate, for his latest on a real mountain stage in the Tour de France. There’s family, there’s his best friends, so inevitably there’s some emotion, but what matters is that he makes the most of this stage and that we’re there for him.says Julien Pinot, Thibaut Pinot’s older brother.
