Well, go on then Right, well the first thing to mention is that because this year the Tour travelled in a clockwise direction around France, in it will be going anti-clockwise.
The difference that makes is that the Alps, as well as being more visually spectacular, is generally thought of as containing the more challenging climbs.
Here's an interesting fact for you: All four of Chris Froome's Tour de France victories have come when the race visited the Alps in the final week.
After four far-from-trivial climbs in the opening k, the first true summit finish of the Tour will take place in Tignes.
Let's hope this time they make it to the end of the 21 kilometre climb. One much more modest climb after that before the arrival in Andorra, where the riders can enjoy a well-earned rest day of watch-buying and tax avoidance.
That was pretty comprehensive. Do you think you can breeze through the final week? Probably not, but we'll try. The Tour de France has a conspicuous absence of summit finishes.
Not none, but far fewer than we have come to expect in recent years. Stage 18, the climbers' last hurrah, is a beast. Any rider lacking confidence in their aero is going to have their eyes on the very last climb of the race, the 13 kilometre Luz Ardiden.
It won't be where the Tour de France is won, but it could be where it's lost. Want to experience the best of the Tour de France? From the Grand Depart to the podium in Paris, Custom Getaways offers the largest selection of both cycling and spectator trips to the Tour de France!
VIP access. Pick-Up Brest train station Drop-off Rennes train station. And Lopez a Colombian Virenque… go upstairs and wash your mouth out with soap.
Virenque was my first cycling hero, despite all the obvious stuff. More importantly idea has been to have more suspense that lasts longer and one way of doing this is to have a bigger cast of characters in contention late into the race.
Kind of, but historically Gaul, Van Impe, Pantani etc were the best climbers of their era and could outclimb the GC men even if they did get mowed down in the TT though I think Gaul was quite good at TTs, but we all probably would be if we got stuck into enough amphetamine.
I think it must be to do with modern training and racing. Like they know that 6. I wonder if it is self fulfilling — i.
GC candidates get the top level of resources, best coaching, top sport science, nutrition planning etc that allows them to be amongst the best climbers in the world?
The days of the romantic climbers such as Robert Millar, Richard Virenque, Tommy Voeckler though perhaps not a true climber and Pantani just used to saunter off during a stage.
In and TdF Hinault and Lemond did similar sorts of raids. But since US postal team we now we have science of the trains. Teams seem to have this nailed.
This year of all years has seen us treated to the closest GTs of all time. And they have to get to the line first to pick up those bonifs.
AND there are enough of these all-round riders to give us some fine inspiration and entertainment. Accept the fact that the big spectable and drama is going to be the final TT not the final mountain stage.
At least they should try this one year. Not sure about this route, it is certainly more traditional but it does seem to be missing something, the finish at Tignes doesnt really replace one of the big alpine cols.
The Giro seems to include high altitude cols more often than the Tour these days. A ride up to a bunch of high altitude tower blocks hardly replaces the drama of, say, the Galibier.
Not sure about the concept of the extending the action by having downhill finishes, most often not much happens and it encourages risk taking by the riders.
Tom Dumoulin certainly comes to mind, Chris Froome too assuming both are recovered by then. Difficult to know where Primoz Roglic or Tadej Pogacar will be but maybe would suit either.
Perhaps this is a route for the older riders? If it wasnt for the Olympics you might even throw Rohan Dennis into the mix. It does have the Ventoux twice but I agree it does lack some serious Alpine altitude.
It lacks a Galibier, Iseran or a Bonette perhaps. A cynic could say a bit more time trialling with few really long climbs and summit finishes, with downhill finishes instead, might be an acknowledgement that Bardet and Pinot are a lost cause and all hope is with Alaphilippe!
Same goes for Dumoulin. Froome seems to be getting just a little bit stronger each day in this Vuelta and banking a very late season GT, or even most of one, in his legs is surely going to provide a good platform for next season.
In recent years the winner of the Tour won the Tour of California the previous year. This course also looks like itll be good for a TT guy to do some marginal doping.
Do we already know exactly the roads of this stage? No more details than the picture of the map at the top, which if you look shows the race heads north in order to then take in more of the Morvan hills as it runs south to Uchon.
Thanks for the great summon on the upcoming TdF route. I like it that there are more TT kms in it again. Another question: Is there something like a heatmap of the roads that the tour has been using ever since?
There is an interactive map by LeMonde, that shows which departements were used the most, you can choose the time frame. More TT km now that Froome is out of the picture.
The route planners seemed to be doing their best to stop a Sky procession for most of the past decade. I think the organisers design the route far enough in advance that responding to individual form or circumstance is out of the question.
