Tour de France 2013 : Official Unveiling Route

Nothing has changed since my last post except the Armstrong affair. Bruyneel and Padua affairs to follow quite soon. More dopage sadly.

The exact route I described in that last post remains true. Would hope to see 10 stages of the tour followed by a holiday in the sun...Annecy would do me fine. Will begin the journey with Gold Coast Half Marathon. That makes following the TDF much easier as I will be in recovery mode. All the stages look very easy to follow and I have been to almost all the destinations. A stress free journey? I have never seen a stage up Mont Ventoux although I spent 3 nights there in 2011, just below the summit. That is a must do.

All flights are booked, the Kangoo will be booked in 4 weeks...nothing to do but dream in French.
