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. Phew, that sure sounds like a lot of climbing. Cyclingnews The World Centre of Cycling.

Resources Reviews Contact Us. We have two stages for punchy riders to start, Stage 1 from Brest to Landerneau ends with an uphill finish of 3km at 5.
This is short, a 30 minute effort to revise the general classification but not resolve it. Stage 9 is a short stage but big day in the Alps.
Stage 10 ought to be a sprint as it skirts the Alps to reach Valence, but there are some hills along the way and an uphill run in town just before the line, it should be similar to where Peter Sagan won from a top that read more like a spring classic than a pure sprint.
Why twice? Stage 14 is a medium mountain stage, a nice ride on quiet roads for much of the year and a day for the breakaway as they reach the Pyrenees and features the Col de Saint-Louis, a new climb for the Tour de France.
Stage 20 and a 31km time trial in the Bordeaux vineyards. Stage 21 is the traditional Parisian criterium.
The Verdict Three summit finishes, seven sprint stages and two solo time trials makes the Tour route look a bit more traditional.
The race only visits the Alps for two days, a third would have allowed for one of those. The top of the final climb here is a de facto finish line as anyone with 20 seconds can hope to keep this to the line.
Who does it suit? Before we get to the GC contenders the course suits plenty with the opening stages looking ideal for Julian Alaphilippe, Wout van Aert, Marc Hirschi, Max Schachmann and possibly Mathieu van der Poel if he rides given his Olympic ambitions.
Will the sprinters be happier? There are probably seven opportunities which is as much as and there now seems to be a house policy at ASO to avoid multiple sprint stages.
The time trials look ideal for Tom Dumoulin but that depends on whether he can recover form last seen in , similar for Geraint Thomas and the relative short distance caps their gains and Chris Froome gets a course to work towards too.
Remco Evenepoel might fancy his chances. The same for Thibaut Pinot who can sometimes do a good time trial but prefers a hilly course, Nairo Quintana even more so.
Maybe the organisers think the tour needs to be more distinguishable from the Giro and the Vuelta in terms of parcours?
The start in Brittany played its part, crossing the flat lands meant several sprint stages in a row so they wanted to drop a time trial in for variety.
They can be much easier to control than more rolling terrain. So in recent years the bigger the mountain stage sometimes the more the big trains can make them quite boring.
Good to see the often dismissed and less wealthy Pyrenees Orientales feature, and the return of the Col du Puymorens for the first time since , a classic from the 60s and 70s.
Interesting to hear the reason behind the downhill finishes, makes perfect sense I suppose. I wonder, though, how long it will be until a top GC man or two crashes and the whole thing is considered a bit too risky.
The exchange rate between climbs and time trials is interesting. The Angliru is about as hard as any climb can reasonably be and even there the time differences were tiny really, if we consider Carapaz as a climber and Roglic as a time trialist.
Historically its the climbs that have provided all the myth and drama at Grand Tours with all sorts of heroic stories from Coppi, Gaul, Merckx and whoever else.
Now its the time trials. You pretty much have to have a time trial as the last proper stage to decide who the winner will be or else the top riders, whoever they are, will be more or less tied on time after following each other up to the top of a series of hills.
Everyone is a climber. And everyone seemingly is towards the upper limit of how fast you can possibly go up a hill. Top prospects are always good against the clock as they are climbing up the mountains.
It just feels that way. Big Mig. Conversely pure climbers rarely win GTs. Lopez basically a Colombian Virenque — or, a lesser Quintana.
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.Kommentieren Sie den Artikel Cancel reply. Tom Dumoulin. Millau — Lavaur. Enjoy France Tours • Le Tour de France with private guided tours.
