Pierre Latour (born 12 October 1993 in Romans-sur-Isère) is a French cyclist riding for AG2R La Mondiale.[2] Due to a clerical error when he was an amateur, Latour is more commonly known with a "Roger" in his name as Pierre-Roger Latour.[3] He was named in the startlist for the 2016 Vuelta a España.[4] In this race, he achieved his first Grand Tour stage victory on the penultimate stage, beating Darwin Atapuma to the finish on the Alto de Aitana.[5]
