At 29, he will compete for his second Tour de France, after that of 2020. Last year, he had a nice Tour, for his baptism of fire, starting three times on the attack in the good breakaway, which allowed him to be classified three times in the Top 10 stages. He had notably finished fourth in the 12th stage, arrived in Sarran, in Corrèze, and ninth in the 16th at Villard-de-Lans, just ahead of the future world champion Julian Alaphilippe.
Especially this year, Quentin Pacher will pass through his birthplace, Libourne. If all goes well, he will be in the peloton during the 19th stage, Mourenx-Libourne, on July 16 and the 20th stage, the time trial between Libourne and Saint-Émilion, stage of which he is the ambassador.
He will be the only Gironde cyclist on the Grande Boucle. Indeed, the Langonnais Thomas Boudat was not selected by his team Arkéa-Samsic, even if his presence could have been useful in preparing the sprints of his leader Nacer Bouhanni.
