Tour de France officials have announced the race will visit Andorra for a fifth time in its history next year.
Le Tour will begin at the foot of Mont Saint-Michel in Normandy on July 2 2016, and it will pass through the principality that lies locked between France and Spain as it winds its way towards the finish in Paris.
A statement from race organisers said:
The peloton of the Grande Boucle will stay three days in the principality, with a stage finish, a rest day and a stage start.
The Tour de France has previously been through Andorra in 1964, 1993, 1997 and 2009. The full route for the 2016 race is to be unveiled in Paris on October 20 this year.
