During this year's Tour, Lance Armstrong will, together with members of the Tour organisation, pay a visit to the Fabio Casartelli monument on the Col du Portet d'Aspet. That will take place on the second rest day, when Armstrong will fly in via helicopter. It will be followed by a memorial service in Pau, attended by family and friends of Casartelli. It will be almost exactly 10 years ago that Casartelli met his death when he crashed while descending the mountain during the 1995 Tour de France. Casartelli was a former teammate of Armstrong's in Motorola, and his death had a big affect on the American.
