  • Lilian Calmejane claims first Tour de France victory

    Frenchman Lilian Calmejane of Direct Energie soloed to victory on stage 8 to Les Rousses, mimicking his compatriot Sylvain Chavanel who did it seven years ago and winning at the age of 24 the same way he did as a neo pro at the Vuelta a España last year. It was a very eventful race with top class contenders in the different breakaways but Chris Froome managed to retain the yellow jersey ahead of grueling climbs on the way to Chambéry.

Know-how, savoir vivre, savoir-être: the triptych "Made in Jura"
At the crossroads between Paris and Switzerland thanks to its airport (Dole-Tavaux), its TGV line and its motorways, Jura presents a haven of nature at the outiskirts of the city. Between its strong urban centers, attracting major companies, its vast expanses of greenery punctuated by mountain bike or ski courses, enhanced by a rich gastronomy with its famous Comté cheese and its yellow wines or vin de paille , Jura is a territory of know-how, way of life and well being.
Wals reveal another Jura in full nature, with the lakes of Chalain or Vouglans. A sporting Jura as welll thanks to its many natural sites, prone to cycling or skiing, climbing and hiking. The department where Louis Pasteur, Rouget de Lisle, Marcel Aymé, Edgar Faure, André Besson, Jason Lamy-Chapuis, Alexis Vuillermoz and many others reached fame and glory can be proud of its historical past. Jura is a a place to live, discover and accomplish.
