L'Albigeoise is a new event in the UCI Granfondo World Series. The event itself has a 23 year old tradition and will be organized in Albi, situated in the south of France (Midi-Pyrénées). Albi is a sports city.

The Tour de France already arrived 12 times in Albi with Peter Sagan as most recent winner in 2013. But the most remarkable fight in the Tour history of Albi was held between Eddy Merckx and Luis Ocana in the tour of 1971. Merckx won the time trial on the same car racetrack only 12 seconds ahead of Ocana who kept yellow to lose it the next day after a crash in the downhill of Col de Mente.

There is a 22.5km Time Trial on May 26th.

The road races on Sunday May 28th will have two circuits. Younger riders will have a 149km course while the other age groups will take a shortcut to finish after 97km.  The region is called "little Tuscany" with magnificent undulating roads for a total of 1500m of elevation for the long distance.  Hills are never very steep and the start and finish sections are mainly flat.

The road races start in the city center on the square before the famous cathedral to finish again on the car racetrack just outside the city.

The World Championships UCI Gran Fondo will also take place in Albi, between 24 and August 27, 2017
