Preview of the Tour de France 2012

The route for next years Tour de France was announced last week, and I missed it. But here on the left is the map of the route.

It will start in Belgium in Liege with a Prologue. More details of the actual rout will come later, but there will be

    • 9 flat stages
    • 4 medium mountain stages - one with a summit finish
    • 5 mountain stages - two with a summit finish
    • 2 individual time-trial stages
    • 1 prologue
    • 2 rest days
It makes it a somewhat different race from this years at least on paper.

New stages towns to the 2012 tour will be Abbeville, Annonay Davézieux, Bellegarde-sur-Valserine, La Planche des Belles Filles, Peyragudes, Porrentruy, Samatan, Tomblaine, Visé.
