Here are the highlights, according to the organizers.

  • 8 flat stages
  • 5 hilly stages
  • 6 mountain stages with 3 finishes at altitude (Tignes, Saint-Lary-Soulan col du Portet, Luz Ardiden)
  • 2 individual time-trial stages
  • 2 rest days
  • Stage 8 Vierzon > Le Creusot, 248 kms, will be the longest of the Tour since 2000 (Belfort > Troyes, 254,5 kms)

Flat stages generally favor the sprinters.  Mountain stages climbers and general classification contenders.  Hilly stages offer opportunities for everyone.  Individual time trials are for time-trial specialists, but it’s also where those racing for the overall can win or lose the race.
